Week 2

Week 2 EN

In this week we will crochet small leaves around the centre. Each leaf will be crocheted separately and you can choose whether you use only one color or several colors, I have used four colors which alternate in this version, in the other version all the small leaves have been done with the same color.

Special Stitches

SS - Standing Stitch: When you start a new round with a new color, you can make a Standing Stitch to begin. The Standing Stitch can be either double crochet, half treble or treble. If you prefer starting rounds with a join and chain, feel free to do so. Join with a slip stitch and chain 2 or 3 depending on whether you are working dc, htr or tr.

There are a lot of pictures and references to photos in the pattern. If there is a special starting point for the round, a picture will be provided.
