Pattern: Rainbow Circle

img_9605img_9486

A circle pattern is super handy to have! You can make coasters, blankets, placemats, and design motifs simply but adding more rows.

I’m sure i’m not the first person to come up with this pattern, but it’s the one I use to make all my circle things.

  • Ch 4 and join beginning stitch with a SL ST. Ch 3, 11 DC into the ring. SL ST to the top of the Beg Ch 3. (12 stitches)
  • CH 3, DC into the same stitch as the Ch3, 2 DC into each stitch going around. SL ST at the end to top of the Beg Ch 3. (24 stitches)
  • CH 3, 2 DC into the next stitch, *DC into the next stitch, then 2 DC into the next. Repeat from * all the way around. SL ST to the top of the Beg Ch 3.
  • Ch 3, 1 DC into the next stitch, 2 DC into the next. *1 DC into the next two stitches, 2 DC into the next stitch. Repeat from * all the way around. SL ST to the top of the Beg Ch 3.
  • Ch 3, 1 DC into the next stitch, 2 DC into the next. *1 DC into the next three stitches, 2 DC into the next stitch. Repeat from * all the way around. SL ST to the top of the Beg Ch 3.
  • Ch 3, 1 DC into the next stitch, 2 DC into the next. *1 DC into the next four stitches, 2 DC into the next stitch. Repeat from * all the way around. SL ST to the top of the Beg Ch 3.
  • You’ll see the pattern now, the 2DC should always be in the same location and the amount of 1DC between these increase

Yarn Glorious Yarn is a small independent yarn store located at Taringa in Brisbane. This store is just over an hours drive away but totally worth it. It’s just down the road from the gorgeous Mt Cootha Lookout which captures a great view of the entire Brisbane area. The store is small but very bright and full of gorgeous yarns, books, and accessories. While I was there a group of crafters were all sitting around knitting, crocheting, and talking, I wish this place was closer!

Finished: Bright Baby Blanket

Another blanket done! This time that yarn is not something I would usually choose, but after finishing this I really love the effect. I used my trusty 5mm hook and my forever-favourite Ice Yarn to make this. I’ve had some extra time over the christmas break so have been taking advantage of this and making a heap of blankets for my market stall.  Continue reading Finished: Bright Baby Blanket
