Step 1: Materials

Materials

  • 1 skein Lion Brand Amazing (Color A "Cactus Flower")
  • 1 skein Lion Brand Martha Stewart Extra Soft Wool (Color B "Gerbera Daisy")
  • 6.5 mm (US K-10.5) hook
  • yarn needle for weaving in ends

The variegated yarn provides interesting color changes in the fabric.

Step 2: Pattern

With color A, Ch 80, join with a slst into first ch, being careful not two twist.

Round 1: Ch 1, SC in same sp, Ch 1, sk 1 ch, *SC in next ch, Ch 1, sk 1 ch; rep from * around, slst to first sc.

Round 2: Slst into first ch-1 sp, switching to next color, Ch 1, SC in same sp, Ch 1, *SC in next ch-1 sp, Ch 1; rep from * around, slst to first sc.

Repeat round 2 to desired height. I stopped at approximately 9", ending with color A, fasten off color B.

Top picot edge: Still working with color A, Slst into first ch-1 sp, Ch 1, SC in same sp, Ch 3, slst into first ch, SC in next ch-1 sp, Ch 1, *SC in next ch-1 sp, Ch 3, slst into first ch, SC in next ch-1 sp, Ch 1; rep from * around, slst into first SC. Fasten off.

Attach color A into a ch-sp made by the foundation chain, Ch 1, then work like top picot edge, starting with the "SC in same sp..."

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Step 3: Diagonal End of Round

There will be a visible "seam" where the rounds end and new color is joined. It looks more visible in photos than it does in person!
