September Morning CAL

By Julie Yeager

Week Six

This week we finish the Concentric Squares and add the border rounds, and add the final border.  I will update this post later in the week with the final arrangement for May Morning, as well as the patterns for the leaves and clouds.

The pattern will be offered here on the blog at no charge and will remain posted free for at least a year.  Please print out with the print-friendly button if you wish to save the pattern. (Click heading and the page will open up with only this post.  You will see the print-friendly button at the end.)  The pattern is available in my Ravelry Store at new low price of $4.99 if you wish to purchase and keep in your Ravelry library.

If you would like to order the prepared yarn packs for the design, they are still available in my Deramores store.  Delivery to the U.S. is about a week to 10 days.

Pattern is written in U.S. terms.

–  Ch-3 and ch-4 at beginning of round/row will count as dc/tr throughout.

–  Magic Ring, invisible joins, air crochet, and other matters of technique are “crocheter’s choice.”

– All rounds/rows will be worked on the right side (RS) except for two border rounds which are indicated as wrong side (WS.)

Lay out blocks and join in desired arrangement.   I slip stitched through the back loops using Border Round 3 color.  You could single crochet or slip stitch through the back or front loops or whipstitch the blocks together.

Final Border

Round 1: Join Color C with sl st in any st.  Ch 2 (counts as hdc), hdc in next st and in each st around, with (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) at the corners.  If you come to a “dip” between squares you can use a dc or a dc2tog instead of an hdc to even out.  Sl st to top of beg ch-2, fasten off.

Round 2: Join Color G with sl st in any st.  Ch 4, tr in each st around, with 5 tr in each corner sp.  Sl st to top of beg ch-4.  Fasten off.
