Week Nineteen Of The Country Garden Crochet Along

Week 19 of the country garden crochet along blog image

It’s week 19 of the Country Garden crochet along. This week we’re going to make the Diamond stitch again, but this time with 2 colours to really make those beautiful diamonds stand out

This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation are:

  • yo (yarn over
  • 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
