Pretty Little Thing - Free Pattern

I started making this pretty little thing (coaster, embellishment, small doily, whatever you'd like to call it) yesterday and completed it this morning whilst watching the Winter sports on telly. Then this afternoon I decided to chart the pattern so that I can make it again, maybe you'd like to make one too?

If you use a 4 mm hook and double knitting weight yarn it measures approximately 12cm in diameter. I used Stylecraft Special dk and mine weighs approximately 8g.

A chart showing a cross section of the pattern follows together with a key to the symbols used. I used chainless starts, otherwise known as standing stitches, and invisible join to the complete rounds. The only exception to this being in the final two rounds. Here when I finished the first of the two rounds I made a slip stitch to join them then ch 1 instead of the first double crochet (US single crochet). Some crocheters like to make the ch 1 and a double crochet in the same stitch to start the round. Choose whichever method you prefer.

Happy Hooking :-)

UK terms

If you use US crochet terms substitute the word single for double, double for treble and treble for double treble.

The colours used starting in the middle are:
Cloud Blue, Fondant, Aspen,
Wisteria, Raspberry, Plum and Spring Green.
