Tiny rings of colour, the beginnings of a mystery motif! I’ve had a lot of requests about this motif that featured on my old blog so I’ll be posting the ‘how to’ here for you. This motif comprises of 4 rounds, today we will work the first.
Chain 8, slip stitch into first chain to form a ring.
Chain 1, work 12 double crochet into ring, join with a slip stitch into first double crochet.
See you tomorrow with Round two!

An edging of colour completes our mystery motif, the ‘Hawaiian Flower motif.’
Work a round of double crochet in a contrasting colour as such:
Work 9 double crochet up one side of the petal, chain 3, work 9 double crochet down the other side of the petal, work 1 double crochet into chain 1 space of round two, continue around, join with a slip stitch to end.
I am joining my Hawaiian Flowers as I go.
