Afghan Pattern #3 - Granny Flower

I am really sorry for the delay in posting this third pattern, but finally here it is.

Don't forget to check the first two patterns for the Afghan:


Pattern: Granny Flower (#3)

Foundation: Work 6ch and join with ss to form a ring.
Round 1: 1ch, 16dc into ring, join with ss into first dc.
Round 2: 6ch (equivalent to 1tr, 3ch), miss two dc, repeat [1tr into next dc, 3ch, miss 1dc] sequence 7 times and join with ss into 3rd of 6ch. You should have now 8 spaced tr.
Round 3: Start with 1ch, then [1dc, 1htr, 3tr, 1htr, 1dc] into same space. Repeat [1dc, 1htr, 3tr, 1htr, 1dc] into next 3ch space seven times. Join with ss into first dc. Eight inner petals made. Break off yarn.

Although not complex, this one will require some practice as a lot of it depends on how consistent your stitches are. I am using 4.5mm needle aiming to make 15cm square blocks. I used Wendy Supreme 100% cotton DK.

Round 4: Join next yarn between any 2dc, then 1ch, 1dc into same place. Work 6ch then sequence [1dc between next 2dc, 6ch] seven times. Join with ss into first dc.

Round 5: 1ch, [1dc, 1htr, 5tr, 1htr, 1dc] into same space. Then work [1dc, 1htr, 5tr, 1htr, 1dc] into next 6ch space seven times total. Join with ss into first dc. Eight outer petals made. Break off yarn.

Round 6: Join next yarn to 2nd tr of any petal. Work 1ch and 1dc into same place. Then 6ch, miss 2tr, 1dc into next tr. Repeat [6ch, 1dc into 2nd tr of next petal, 6ch, miss 2tr, 1dc into next tr] seven times total. Join with ss into first dc.

Round 7: Ss into next 6ch space, 3ch (equivalent to 1tr). [3tr, 4ch, 4tr] into same space to make a corner. // 4ch, 1dc into next 6ch space, then work [6ch, 1dc into next 6ch space] twice, 4ch, [4ch, 4tr, 4ch] into next 6ch space (second corner made). Repeat from // two times more and then 4ch, 1dc into next 6ch space, then work [6ch, 1dc into next 6ch space] twice, 4ch. Join with ss into 3rd of 3ch. 

Round 8: 3ch (equivalent to 1tr). 1 tr into each of next 3tr. // [3tr, 2ch, 3tr] into next 4ch corner space. Continue with 1tr into each of next 4tr. 1ch, 2tr into next 4ch space, repeat [1ch, 3tr into next 6ch space] twice, then 1ch, 2tr into next 4ch space, 1ch, 1tr into each of next 4tr. Repeat from // twice and then [3tr, 2ch, 3tr] into next 4ch corner space. Continue with 1tr into each of next 4tr. 1ch, 2tr into next 4ch space, repeat [1ch, 3tr into next 6ch space] twice, then 1ch, 2tr into next 4ch space, 1ch. Join with ss into 3rd of 3ch. Fasten off yarn.
