Full bloom crochet stitch pattern

 

Welcome to the first of hopefully many crochet blog post and videos. While looking for a very easy and simple crochet pattern I came across the full bloom pattern in 280 Crochet Shell Patterns by Darla Sims, this fit the bill as it only has one pattern row (plus a setup row). I decided to call the 2 double crochet, chain 1, 2 crochet a bloom although Darla does not call it that it really helped me when I put the tutorial together.

I tested this pattern out while making a dishcloth and I think this is a super way to get to know a pattern before embarking on a larger project. I have included instruction for both US and UK terms so no one feels left out.

Key for US terms

dc: double crochet

ch: chain

Bloom: 2 double crochet, chain 1, 2 double crochet.

The pattern a multiple of 5 plus 4 chs.

US Terms

Set up row: (bloom) in the 6 ch from the hook *sk the next 4 chs (bloom) rep. from * until the last 3 ch, sk 2 chs dc in last ch. Turn the work

Row 1: ch 3 (counts as dc throughout), (bloom) in the ch sp. across sk the last 2 dc, dc in the top of the turning ch.

Repeat row 1 for as long as you need.

Key for UK terms

tr: treble crochet

ch: chain

Bloom: 2 treble, chain 1, 2 treble.

The pattern a multiple of 5 plus 4 chs.

US Terms

Row 1: ch 3 (counts as tr throughout), (bloom) in the ch sp. across sk the last 2 tr, tr in the top of the turning ch.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crocheting.
