It’s week 18 of the Country Garden crochet along. This week we’re going to make the Diamond stitch which will continue with our trellis like panels.
This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation are:
- sc (single crochet) = Double crochet
- dc (double crochet) = treble crochet
- tr (treble crochet) = Double treble crochet
If you would like to follow my colour scheme in either Paintbox Cotton Aran or Caron Simply Soft, you can find my colours here
Row 1. With Colour B join into the 2nd corner stitch on the long side above the Tulip Panel.
