Irish Crochet: 1st Bud

I followed the pattern in Irish Crochet Laceand was not to happy with the end result.  I found this pattern to be a bit big and plain compared to some of the others.  Next time I will probably make it on a smaller scale.

Materials:

  • Yarn (Lace (0) weight)
  • Cotton Cord
  • U.S. size 7 (1.65 mm) Crochet Hook

Instructions:

  1. Over a single cord foundation: Sc 50.
  2. Sl St into the 26th St forming the smaller loop.
  3. Still working over the foundation cord: Sc 25 to complete larger loop.
  4. Sl St the larger loop together.
  5. Ch 1.
  6. Still working over the foundation cord: Sc around the larger loop (50 Sc in total) – hooking into both horizontal loops of each St in the previous Rnd.
  7. Unit the Rnd at the base with another Sl St.
  8. Make a stem:
    1. Sc 12 over the cord foundation.
    2. Ch 1 to turn.
    3. Work your way back up the stem, taking the cord back with you: Sc 12 – hooking into both horizontal loops of each St in the stem.
  9. Fasten the end of the stem into the base of the bud, and fasten off the cord.
