Buttercup Edging & Insertion Pattern

MATERIALS:
J. & P. Coats Tatting-Crochet, Size 70, Dk. Yellow (No. 43) and Hunter's Green (No. 48) … Steel Crochet Hook No. 14.

EDGINGBUTTERCUP MOTIF … Starting at center with Yellow, ch 6. Join with sl st to form ring.

FIRST PETAL1st row: Sl st in ring, ch 3, 3 dc in ring. Ch 1, turn. 2nd row: 2 sc in each dc, 2 sc in top of ch-3 (8 sc). Ch 3, turn. 3rd row: Dc in first sc, 2 dc in each sc (16 dc, counting turning chain as 1 dc). Ch 1, turn. 4th row: Sc in each st across (16 sc). Ch 3, turn. 5th row: Skip first sc, dc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. 6th row: Sc in each st across. Ch 3, turn. 7th row: Skip first sc, holding back on hook the last loop of each dc, make dc in next 3 sc, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (3 sts decreased), dc in each sc across, decreasing 3 sts at end of row as before. Ch 1, turn. 8th row: (Insert hook in next st and draw loop through) 4 times; thread over and draw through all loops on hook (3 sts decreased), sc in each st across, decreasing 3 sts at end of row. Break off.

SECOND PETAL … Attach Yellow to ring, ch 3, 3 dc in ring and com­plete petal as before. Make 2 more petals in this manner.

BASE OF MOTIF1st rnd: Attach Green in ring (between 2 petals), (ch 5, sc in ring between next 2 petals) 4 times. 2nd rnd: Sl st in next ch-5 loop, ch 3, 5 dc in same loop, (6 dc in next loop) 3 times (24 dc, counting starting chain as 1 dc). 3rd rnd: Sc in same place as sl st, * ch 5, skip next dc, sc in next dc. Repeat from * around, ending with ch 5, sl st in first sc. 4th rnd: Sl st to center of next loop, sc in same loop, * ch 5, sc in next loop. Repeat from * around. Join. 5th rnd: Same as 4th rnd, making ch-6 (instead of ch-5). Break off.

CENTER … With double strand of Yellow, ch 1 loosely (ch 10 more sts in the usual manner, sc in the loose ch) 10 times. Break off. Sew center in place.
   Make another Buttercup motif in this manner.

SMALL MOTIF … Starting at center with Green, ch 10. Join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 dc in ring. Sl st in top of ch-3. 2nd rnd: Sc in same place as sl st, * ch 2, sl st in any loop on outer rnd of Buttercup Motif, ch 2, skip 1 dc on Small Motif, sc in next dc, ch 2, sl st in next loop on Buttercup Motif, ch 2, skip 1 dc on Small Motif, sc in next dc, (ch 5, skip 1 dc, sc in next dc) 4 times. Repeat from * once more, joining Small Motif to 2nd But­tercup Motif as before and ending with sl st in first sc. Break off.
   Make necessary number of motifs, joining a Small Motif between 2 But­tercup Motifs as before, having 4 free loops on each side of joining on each motif.

HEADING … Attach Green to 3rd free loop preceding joining on end Buttercup Motif, sc in same place, * ch 3, sc in next loop, ch 5, d tr in next loop, d tr in next free loop on Small Motif, ch 5, tr in next loop, ch 3, tr in next loop, ch 5, d tr in next loop, d tr in next free loop on next motif, ch 5, sc in next loop. Repeat from * across. Break off.

SCALLOPED EDGE … Attach Green to 5th free loop on other side of end motif preceding joining, * ch 3, holding back on hook the last loop of each tr make 2 tr in next free loop, thread over and draw through all loops on hook (cluster made), ch 5, sc in 3rd ch from hook (picot made), ch 2, cluster in same loop, (in next loop make cluster, ch 2, picot, ch 2 and cluster) 3 times; ch 3, sc in next free loop on Small Motif, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 3 times. Repeat from * across. Break off. For Insertion, work Head­ing on both long sides.
