Week 11: Border part 5

Week-11

Before continuing with the border, we will make a Flower in each corner. The flowers consist of two rows (Corner Flower Rows 1 and 2). Double check the placement of your stitch markers before you start!

Corner Flower Row 1 (CC3)
Before you start, identify the 4 ch-1 sps of each corner Scallop from Border Round 17. Except for the first and last joining sts, you will only be working into these ch-1 sps. Ignore all other stitches and ch-2 sps.

*Join CC3 by making a sl st in the marked ch-1 sp from Border Round 18 before any corner Scallop. Remove this SM. Ch 1. (2-tr Bobble, ch 2) twice in each of the first 3 ch-1 sps of the Scallop from Round 17, working OVER the ch-1 sps from Round 18. (2-tr Bobble, ch 2, 2-tr Bobble) in the last ch-1 sp of the Scallop from Round 17, again working OVER the ch-1 sp from Round 18. Ch 1 and join by making a sl st in the marked ch-1 sp after the Scallop. Remove this SM. Fasten off and work away your ends.*

Repeat from * to * until you have worked into each corner Scallop.

Stitch Count Per Corner Flower: 8 2-tr Bobbles, 2 ch-1 sps, and 7 ch-2 sps – not including sl sts

Corner Flower Row 2 (CC4)
Except for the first and last joining sts, you will ONLY be working into the ch-2 sps of Corner Flower Row 1. Ignore all other stitches and ch-1 sps.

*Identify the marked dc from Border Round 18 before any corner Scallop. Join CC4 by making a standing BPdc around this dc. Do not remove this SM! Ch 1. (3-tr Bobble, ch 3) in each of the next 6 ch-2 sps. 3-tr Bobble in the last ch-2 sp. Ch 1 and join by making a BPdc around the next marked dc from the previous round. Remove this SM and place it in the next dc from Border Round 18! Fasten off and work away your ends.*

Repeat from * to * until you have a Flower in each corner.

Stitch Count Per Corner Flower: 2 BPdc, 7 3-tr Bobbles, 2 ch-1 sps, and 6 ch-3 sps – not including sl sts

We will now continue with the border.

Border Round 19 (MC)
Join MC yarn by making a standing FPdc around any last Bobble from Flower Row 2.

*Make 3 tr in the marked dc from Border Round 18, directly after the dc containing the BPdc from Corner Flower Row 2. Remove the SM and place it in the first tr of the 3-tr group just made. Htr in the next st, which should be the fourth st before the next ch-1 sp. Ch 4. Skip the next 3 sts, the next ch-1 sp, and the next 3 sts (the first one of which will be hidden, here and on each repeat).

(Htr in the next st, which should be the fourth st after the ch-1 sp. Make 2 tr in the next st, make a Cluster over the next 2 sts and the next ch-1 sp. Skip the next st, which should be the BPdc. Make a Cluster over the next ch-1 sp and the next 2 sts. Make 2 tr in the next st, htr in the next st. Ch 4, skip the next 6 sts and the ch-1 sp) 10 times.

Htr in the next st, which should be the fourth st after the ch-1 sp. Tr in the next st. Make 2 tr in the next st, which should already contain the SM and the BPdc from Corner Flower Row 2. Remove the SM. (FPdc around the next Bobble from Flower Row 2, ch 3) 6 times. FPdc around the last Bobble from Flower Row 2. This will form your corner.*

Repeat from * to * 5 more times, omitting the last FPdc on the last repeat. Join to the first FPdc with a sl st.

Stitch Count Per Side: 22 htr, 46 tr, 20 Clusters, and 11 ch-4 sps – not including the corners, which consist of 7 FPdc and 6 ch-3 sps

Border Round 20 (MC)
When making the BPdc into Corner Flower Row 1, it is easier if you turn your work towards you so that you can see what you are doing.

Sl st into the next st, which should contain the SM. Remove the SM. Ch 1, dc in the same st. Dc in the next 3 sts.

*(Make 4 dc in the next ch-4 sp. Skip the next st, which will be hidden anyway. Htr in the next 2 sts. Tr in the next st, which should be the first Cluster.

Skipping all the corner sts and sps from the previous round (highlighted above), dc in the first 4 sts of the next side, the first of which should contain a SM. Remove the SM.*

(Htr, tr) in the same ch-3 sp, still working over the ch-3 sp from Border Round 19. Ch 1. Mark this ch-1 sp with a SM to help you identify it later on. (Tr, htr, dc) in the next ch-3 sp, working over the ch-3 sp from Round 19. This is your first corner made.
