Does anyone know how to make a crochet "dome" as seen here:

http://www.eject.com.au/e-motive/prudence/whatis.htm

Is it just a flower variation?

edited: Maybe it's bullion stitch?

The page I linked to had a gray "dome" at the top.  It looks like a lot of this particular freeform is based on that one motif in random sizes/colors.  I was wondering if this "dome" is a specific pattern or just a basic granny square center...  Is rolled stitch the same as bullion stitch?

That dome looks like a ring, say ch 4, sl st to join
then increase in each st for a row or two so you have a little cupping
if you increase unequally youll get a pointy top, if equally it will be more rounded

That is so beautiful! The stuff at Marlo's, I mean. Wow. I started a Ganesha shrine in free form and it looks okay, but sort of tacky, and I think the reason is that I'm using all red heart. I will experiment with different weights and see if it helps. I particularly adore that blue flower bag. Woudln't it be fun to go through every flower pattern you could find, then stick them all on a pillow?

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

.Wow, What a great board! Thanks LostCove for the link.
We do indeed have lots of crazy free formers at both our groups with tons of info on the dome and more. Prudence is there along with Margaret Hubert and Jenny Dowde who've both written NEW great books on Free Form.
All the info's on my home page if you scroll to the bottom

I did! I submitted about 6 different things and sent my URL plus sent Debbie 1 item but I haven't heard anything back yet. My fingers are crossed (which makes it hard to crochet!) Undecided
Wish me luck!!
