Week Twelve Of The Country Garden Crochet Along

Week twelve of the country garden crochet along blog image

It’s week 12 of the Country Garden crochet along. This week we are making a border around our entire centre panel using the Camel stitch. There’s nothing more reminiscent of a country garden than a stripy lawn, so we will be using 3 different shades of green this week.

If you would like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for just £5 from Ravelry

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

  • Hdc (Half double crochet) = Half 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

Round 1. With Colour A, join into any stitch around the edge with a standing hdc using both loops. You will be working into both loops in this round.

  • The Rose Squares – make a hdc in each stitch, then make 3 hdc in the corner chain space

  • The puff flower panel – make a hdc in the 1st dc, then skip to the 1st chain space. Make 3 hdc in each chain space  then a hdc between the puff stitches. After the last chain space, skip between the puff and dc and make your last hdc in the final dc.
  • The Wiggle Stitch – make a hdc in each double crochet, and a hdc in each chain space working between the wiggle stitches.
