So here’s another chart that I’m going to tackle, looks simple enough. I’m going to stick with the 2 row repeat charts for a while, any more than that and I tend to lose the plot a bit.
This pattern has the usual suspects as well as a cluster stitch:
Quick instruction for the cluster:
Back for a close up of the start of the pattern:
So, chain 32 for 4 repeats of the pattern (4 repeats x 8 stitches) + 1 at the end to finish off the pattern = chain 33
For the 1st row:
ch1, sc in 2nd chain from hook, *skip 3 chains, (dc, ch3, dc, ch3, dc) in next chain, skip 3 chains, sc*. Repeat between * and* 3 more times.
Here’s what it looks like at the end of the first row.
For the 2nd row:
ch3, dc in the sc, ch3, sc in the dc, ch3, *cluster (photo tutorial above) in the next sc, ch3, sc in the dc, ch3* repeat between * and * 3 more times then 2dc in the sc at the end of the last row.
Here’s the result at the end of the 2nd row – so far so good:
so then it’s back to the 1st row of the repeat but it’s slightly different since you’re not working in a chain anymore so:
ch1, sc in 1st dc, *(dc, ch3, dc, ch3, dc) in next sc of previous row, sc in the top of the puff of the previous row* repeat between * and* 3 more times and finish the row with a sc in the top of the ch3.
ch3, dc in the sc, ch3, sc in the dc a the top of the ‘arch’, ch3, *cluster in the next sc, ch3, sc in top of the arch, ch3* repeat between * and * 3 more times then 2dc in the sc at the end of the last row
and repeat row1 and row1 till bored.
and I’ve ended up with:

Off to find another chart now.
