1  Re: flower poncho in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by twintoo on: September 09, 2004 03:52:40 AM
Hi!  Keep in mind that it is 5:30am.  I have been up since 3:30 when my child woke up screaming b/c her daddy was going to work. UGH Undecided

Don't mind that pattern in the background.  It has nothing to do with this flower LOL  Crocheting stuff has overtaken my home.  Grin

I used a size F hook (first one I grabbed) and some old Bernat Berella Germantown 4 ply acrylic yarn.

Chain 4 and join with a slipstitch to form a ring.  Make 7 sc in the ring and join with slip stitch.  Chain 4(counts as 1st treble crochet), then make a treble crochet where you joined the scs.  Make 2 treble crochets in each sc around, join with slip stitch.  Chain 7 and join to the top of the 3rd treble crochet over (so it appears there is one treble crochet between where your chain began and ended), repeat around and join with sl st.  sc in first ch of the 7 you made, half dc in the next, 2 dc in the next, treble crochet in the 4th, 2 dc in the 5th, hdc in the 6th, and sc in the 7th.  Do this all the way around.  join and finish off.  That should give you an 8 petaled flower. Smiley  Mine measures 3.25 inches across.

Make a bunch of those and join them together like the one on EBay.  Smiley  good luck

I went to the local thrift stores today.  Normally I try to find hooks and patterns at these stores but today I found two huge bags (like the ones comforters come in) full of crochet thread (like for doilies) in all different colors.  One of the bags was all off white and had 1 HUGE doily started in it and another one that was smaller.  I just finished them both off on the row they were on.  Anyway, I paid $11 for both bags and I got a HUGE amount of thread.  My husband will probably kill me but who could pass it up?  LOL

Just thought I would share my excitement with someone else that may understand it! LOL

Here is the picture of the very large doily that was in my jackpot.  I don't know if you would even call it a doily because it is 29 inches across.
