The 2012 Ornament Project ~ January

The Flower Wheel

Ch 2
Row 1:  work 6 sc in second ch from hook, sl st to beg sc
Row 2:  ch 3 (counts as first dc) 2 dc in same st, 3 dc in each st around, join with sl st to top of beg ch 3 - 18 dc
Row 3:  *ch 5, skip st, sc in next st* 8 times
Row 4;  ch 5, skip next st, sc in first unworked st from Row 3 (working in front of the loops), *ch 5, sc in next unworked st* 8 times, ch 5, sl st to first sc made in Row 4
Finishing:  Pull loop on hook until it measures 2.25 inches. Cut off yarn leaving 4” for weaving.  Tie the loop and the 4” piece using the beginning shoe lace tie.  Weave in all loose ends.

Picture Notes:

It's a simple little shape and makes up very quickly.  To me it looks like a cross between a flower and a wheel, so that's why I named it The Flower Wheel.  I played around with the size by changing the stitch in row 2 to a hdc or a sc, but in the end, I liked the look of the dc best.  

If you need a stitch guide or help with the abbreviations, Crochet 'N' More is a great place to find all of the basics.
