    I love the pattern!! I am thinking about making a runner using your patten.


  2. I’m so glad…..I think this is a motif that is open to all kinds of applications. What a lovely runner it will make! I’d love to see a picture when it is finished!
    Happy Hookin’!

  3. jennifer Says:

    Hi – I have just tried this pattern and wonder if there is a misprint in round 14? Should there be a chain 5 after the {dc, ch 3, dc}? Thanks


  4. Jennifer:
    Good catch! You are correct, there should be a ch 5 after the dc, ch 3, dc.
    Thanks for the heads up on that one!
    Carol

  5. jennifer Says:

    Thanks for your quick response. I am afraid I did something not quite right – my pattern does not look like a spiral. It just looks like a flower. I am going to make a bunch of these for jar toppers, though, because they are quick and very cute. I like to dress up my jams and sauces that I home can, to give as gifts.


  6. My pleasure! Oooooh…..homemade jam! It may be when you start on the decrease rnds, you may be starting in the first dc loop instead of skipping over to the second loop of the previous decreased rnd…….

  7. Dixie Says:

    What size is this tablecloth when it is finished?


  8. Thank you so much for your interest. Because the tablecloth is done in motifs, you can make it as small or as big as you like.

  9. Rosemarie Says:

    i love the look of this, i must try it out.
    with hope i can make it look as good as your in the picture


  10. Thank you so much! I have every confidence in your abilities!

  11. Linda Brennan Says:

    Love this pattern – can’t figure out rnd 4 – sl st around dc post of rnd 2 – can you help me?


  12. Rnd. 4: Change color; attach thread with sl st around dc post of rnd. 2; (here you want to attach the thread around the the post of the dc on the 2nd rnd, it will be under the flower petal)ch 3, sl st around next dc post of rnd. 2; *ch 3, sl st around next dc post of rnd. 2*; repeat 4 times; join with sl st to beginning sl st. 6-ch 3 spaces
    If you work around the posts, on the second rnd, it creates the raised flower and gives you the ch 3 spaces for the rest of the motif. If you push the flower forward, you will see the posts from the previous rnd. Hope this helps.
    Carol

  13. Linda Brennan Says:

    Carol,
    Thank you so much for your help – didn’t get the idea of the raised flower from the picture, so was rather muddled! Finished round eight – onwards I go!
    Linda


  14. LOL…..onward and upward…..just give me a shout if you have any questions.

  15. sumati Says:
