|Baby Sage - 32" x 37"|
...which lead to a test-trial swatch.
This pattern is another excellent BEGINNER project, with only two stitches being used (dc and ch), and a single repeated row pattern.
Size: 32" x 37"
Hook: Size J (6.0 mm)
Yarn: Red Heart with Love - each skein: 370 yards/338m. Two (2) skeins need for pattern as written. (color: Lettuce)
Stitches used: dc (double crochet) & ch (chain stitch)
Chain: The pattern is a 6-ch repeat. Chain multiples of 6, plus 4 (acts at 1 dc and 1 ch).
I chained 126 + 4.
Row 1: dc in 5th ch from hook. [*Skip 4 ch. (dc, ch1, dc) in next ch**, (dc, ch1, dc) in next ch] Repeat [ ] starting at * and ending last repeat at ** in last ch. Turn.
Row 2: ch 4 (acts as 1 dc and 1ch), dc in next ch1 space. Skip 2 dc and ch1 space. [*(dc, ch1, dc) in next dc**. (dc, ch1, dc) in next dc. skip ch1, skip next 2 dc, skip ch1.] Repeat [ ] starting at * and ending last repeat at ** in 3rd ch of turning chain. Turn.
Repeat Row 2 until desired length is reached.
Happy President's Day!
