I started making this for myself as a scrap-ghan, and my sister came to visit about halfway through. Needless to say, she loved it too, and boldly asked me if she could have it. She's the baby sister, it comes naturally Smiley I couldn't say no, after all she lives over 1500 miles away in Virginia Beach, it's like a long distance hug Cheesy So here it is, with some closeups so you can better see some of the yarn colors.




The pattern is called Daisy Garden and comes from a booklet for one pound afghans, or something like that.
The pattern recommended three shades of pink, but I think this looks so much better Wink I did a scallop in black to kind of "frame" it in, pretty artwork that it is, hehe.
What do y'all think?

Pattern typed out by Kolibri pg 10
How-to pics on pg 13
New link to free pattern (Lion's Brand "Colorful Wheels Afghan") on pg 17

Ok, heres the written instructions for daisy the pattern.

It has been translated from the symbols pattern at the Jessica Tromp page, and I adapted it to look a bit more like Sonnetbird's. I'm not sure directions are exactly the same as those from the mentioned afghan book, but these came from a free pattern site and looks quite the same. (If there are any errors please let me know!)

Happy Crocheting everybody!



Daisy pattern

2dctog = yo insert hook and draw up loop, yo and draw through 2 loops, yo insert hook in same stitch and draw up loop, yo an draw through 2 loops, yo and draw through all 3 loops.

WITH COLOR A.

Start with a chain as long as you want it to be. The number of chains should be dividable by eleven (for instance 22, 33, 44 etc.) TURN

Row 1:
(Start at right side of work)
Ch 2, 2dctog in 8th ch from hook, * ch2, 2dctog in same ch, ch2, 2dctog in next ch, ch2, 2dctog in same ch, skip 4 ch, sc, skip 4 ch, 2dctog *
Repeat from * to * throughout row ending with sc in last ch of the beginning chain. DO NOT TURN


WITH COLOR B.

Row 2:
(Start at right side of work)
Join yarn in the ch just before first 2dctog, ch 3, * 2dctog in top op 2dctog, skip ch2 sp, 2dctog in top of next 2dctog, ch 3, sc in ch2 sp, ch 3, 2dctog in top of 2dctog, skip ch2 sp, 2dctog in top of next 2dctog, skip sc *
Repeat from * to * throughout row ending with 2dctog in last 2dctog and dc in last sc of row. TURN

Row 3:
Ch 3, sc in second 2dctog, * ch3, skip ch3 sp, sc in sc, ch 3, skip ch3 sp, sc in top of 2dctog, ch 2, skip next 2 2dctog, sc in next 2dctog *
Repeat from * to * throughout row ending with sc in first of the last 2 2dctog, ch 1, sc in top of ch3 sp. TURN

Row 4:
Ch 4, 2dctog in ch1 sp, ch 2, 2dctog in same sp, skip ch3 sp, sc in sc, * skip ch 3 sp, 2dctog in ch2 sp, (ch 2, 2dctog) 3 times in same sp, skip chain 3 sp, sc in sc *
Repeat from * to * throughout row ending row with (2dctog, ch 2, 2dctog, ch 1, dc) in last ch3 sp. DO NOT TURN


WITH COLOR C.

Row 5:(Start at right side of work)
Join yarn in 3rd ch in ch4 sp, ch5, * 2dctog in top of first 2dctog, skip ch2 sp, 2dctog in top of next  2dctog, skip sc, 2dctog in top of next 2dctog, skip ch2 sp, 2dctog in top of next 2dctog, ch 3, sc in ch 2 sp, ch 3 *
Repeat from * to * throughout row ending with sc in last dc. TURN

Row 6:
Like Row 3, but starts a bit different:  Ch5, skip ch 3 sp, sc in first 2dctog.  Ch2, skip next 2 2dctog, sc in next 2dctog.  From this point repeat  * to * from "Row 3" ending with ch3, skip ch3 sp, sc in 4th chain from 2dctog below, turn.

Row 7:
Like Row 4 but starts: Ch2.  From this point repeat * to * from "Row 4" ending with sc in 4th chain from left of ch2sp below.

I've been meaning to try the daisy stitch... This is a nice motivation, it's very pretty. Good work on using your scraps, too!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

This is lovely!  Grand to see someone make an almost-scrap-ghan using a method other than granny squares.  Kudos Smiley
