I saw these yesterday, and while I'm just starting to crochet I'm curious to know how difficult they may be for someone just starting out.

I'm sure mine will be full of loose stitches but they are too cute not to try!

These are sooo wicked!  Good work for making up the pattern...How hard do you think it would be to scale them up or down so that there's a small, medium and large one?

Love them! I first saw this post about a year ago when I was learning to crochet, and it really helped! Grin
I made one back then but never posted pics. I'm off to make another one now - will be interesting to see how it compares with my earlier one! Grin
Thanks for posting the pattern!:D

These are the cutest. I am new to crocheting so I have a question if you don't mind. Help me read your pattern. The ring needs to be 8 stiches, so is each round X8? Patterns that I have finished usually have 6 stiches in the first ring, so after that each round will be 6 times whatever the directions are. Example..sc in one, inc* that means do that 6 times.
Your round 2 and 3 say the same thing but the total numbers are different?
And, round 7-18: single crochet around...how many stiches is that?
Sorry i'm so confused, but I really want to make these. They are so sweet.
Please help and thanks for sharing.

I am not the author, but I think I can help you.

Each round will be slightly different, because you are increasing the number of stitches in each round.

For instance, you begin with 8 stitches.  "1 sc in one" takes up one stitch, and "2 sc in one" takes up one stitch as well.  You will repeat this direction four times.

On the next round, you will have 12 stitches.  "1 sc in one" still takes up one stitch, and "2 sc in one" also still takes up one stitch.  But because you have more stitches this time around, you will repeat the direction 6 times.

When your pattern reads "* {instruction} * around", it may be helpful for you to use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round so that you can tell where your rounds begin/end.

If you aren't familiar or comfortable with using stitch markers, a little math may be helpful to you.  Take the total number of stitches you should have at the beginning of a round and divide it by the number of stitches in the direction, as follows:

Round 2: *1 Single Crochet in one, 2 Single Crochet in 1* around (12 total)
This direction uses 2 stitches and is worked into your initial 8 stitches, so you will need to repeat it 4 times.
Round 3: *1 Single Crochet in one, 2 Single Crochet in 1* around (18 total)
This direction uses 2 stitches is worked into the last round's 12 stitches, so you will need to repeat it 6 times.
Round 4: *1 Single Crochet in two, 2 Single Crochet in 1* around (24 total)
This direction uses 3 stitches is worked into the last round's 18 stitches, so you will need to repeat it 6 times.
Round 5: *1 Single Crochet in two, 2 Single Crochet in 1* around (32 total)
This direction uses 3 stitches is worked into the last round's 24 stitches, so you will need to repeat it 8 times.
Round 6: *1 Single Crochet in three, 2 Single Crochet in 1* around (40 total)
This direction uses 4 stitches is worked into the last round's 32 stitches, so you will need to repeat it 8 times.

This is true.  When you do 2 single crochet into 1 stitch, you are increasing the number of stitches in your round by 1. 

Quote from: busy momma
And, round 7-18: single crochet around...how many stiches is that?
When you do a single crochet all the way around, the number of total stitches should not change.  It should remain at 40 stitches each round.

Let me know if that clears things up at all!

Looooooove this pattern. It is super easy for people who are comfortable with crochet and a great first ami pattern to try out. This was the first ami pattern I used, and it is still one of my favorites!!!!
