OCTAGON PATTERN:
USA terms 3.5mm hook or a 4mm
DK yarn
Ch 3, sl st, into a circle...col 1
R1: 12 dc into circle, sl st to complete round....col 2
R2: 2sc in each st, sl st to complete round....col 3

close up of a 2 colour motif

 R3: Start in any stitch, 2dc in first and second st, chain 3 and miss a st, repeat until you have 8 sides sl st to complete round.
Use join as you go to attach them.
Join as you go is a simple sl st through the matched st of another motif
Make it in two colours or three...
edge every 9 motifs with a band of colour and join the blocks of 9
change the colour change the look...


 Have fun and Happy Hooking everyone

  1. Love these, Sue! And joined together they make such a convenient linear panel. The gaps are interesting too - would make a wonderful throw against a dark or light plain background. E x
