Well. I had something completely different planned for the "How to read crochet charts" series, but this lovely pattern stole my heart and I decided to write about it first.
The pattern is called Flower Garden and I had it pinned on my pinterest board for quite some time only recently giving it a try. I am making warmers with this pattern and I love it!
If you find it pleasing too, sharpen your hooks and let's start.
Flower Garden Crochet Pattern
The pattern uses multiples of 11 +7.
Row1: in 10th st from hk tr1, ch5, tr1 in the same st, ch 5 (counts as the 1st tr) and (bobble st) 2tr, sk 2 st and make a 3tr bobble in the 3rd st, next ch5 and tr2 to make the 4th petal. Sk3 and bobble 3(tr) in the 4th st. Sk 2 and in the 3rd st tr1, ch5, tr1 in the same st. Repeat flower pattern. Sk 2 and in the 3rd st tr1, ch5, tr1 in the same st.Ch 1 and tr1 in the last st.
With this we completed one row of flowers.
Row 3: next row of flowers. Ch 5 and repeat first row of flowers.
Row 4: repeat 2nd row of flowers.
The pattern works really fast when you get the hang of it. Using DK and bulkier yarn makes the pattern really stand out.
Also if you are more of a visual type and understand Spanish, Esperanza has a fantastic video showing this stitch which you can see here.
