SECRET GARDEN BLANKET PATTERN.... in one post

Pattern all pulled together in one post for the Secret Garden Blanket pattern......



CENTRE MOTIF PATTERN: 
Change colour each round using chart. It always helps to see what it should look like before you start I think.





NOTES: Make a finger wrap of 10 wraps, simply wrap the yarn around your finger 10 times and slide off holding firmly this is an old Irish technique to add padding to Irish crochet....and one of my favourite centre starts

US Terms [UK Terms in red brackets]


ROUND 1: 16sc [16dc], into the circle, then repeat a second row of 16sc [16dc], over the top of the first, sl st, to complete, cut and weave in ends. [32sc (32dc)



NOTES: If you are struggling to make this centre neat and cover the first row of stitches it might help to do 14sc [14dc], on the first round and then cover them with 16sc [16dc], and don't pull the stitches too tight, a bit like doing a spike or long stitch, a little practise should give you a satisfying result 





ROUND 2: ch2, counts as first dc [tr], 2dc [2tr], into each st, sl st to complete, cut and weave in ends [32dc (32tr)]



NOTES: This round is pretty straightforward, a mention here about THE DREADED ENDS...Please learn to weave them in using your hook or sew them in as you go, it really will make you feel so much better when you complete the blanket and there are NO ENDS TO SEW OFF!



ROUND 3: 
NOTES: 5tr [5dtr], Popcorn st.  This is my method of doing a Popcorn stitch, I have seen it written up as a LAZY METHOD...the cheek! I never could see the point in removing your hook from the stitches and reinserting them to do this stitch in the traditional method, when turning the work was easier.



Att yarn in any sp between a pair of dc [tr], of round 2. Ch3 [counts as first tr (dtr)], 5tr [5dtr], into first sp, 

turn motif over and sl st into the back of the first tr [dtr], ch3, 


return to front of motif, 5tr [5dtr], into next sp, turn to back and sl st into the ch3, turn back to front and repeat in each sp, to end, sl st into first st, cut and weave in ends.




A Round 3 Popcorn Flower finished...great for decorative pins or broaches 

ROUND 4: Att. yarn in any ch3 sp, sc [dc], ch3, sc [dc], into same sp, 3dc [3tr], ch3, 3dc [3tr], into next sp, sc [dc], ch3, sc [dc], into next sp, repeat alternate sts into point, loop, combination to end, sl st to complete, cut and weave in ends. [8small loops, 8 points]

NOTE: Attaching the yarn will create the fist dc, always a hard one this when writing patterns, the chain stitches that are needed to start a round. Do you assume people will understand this or write it into the pattern on every round? 



I always use the attachment as a sc [dc], ch2 at a dc [tr], and ch3 as a tr [dtr], and so on....




NOTE: At round 5 you could join together to make another option for another blanket!
And use a solid square infill...lots of options 


ROUND 5: Att. yarn in ch3 point, sc [dc], ch3, sc [dc], in same point, 3tr [3dtr], ch3, 3tr [3dtr], in next ch3 loop, repeat to end, sl st to complete, cut and weave in ends. [8small loops, 8 points]







PASTELS TO ROUND 5


ROUND 6: Att. yarn in any POINT, ch5, sc [dc], in next LOOP, ch5, sc [dc], in next POINT, repeat to end, sl st into first ch5 loop, continue in same col. [16 loops]


CLOSE UP OF ROUND 6


NOTE: At this point it might be a little tight, it will flatten as you add the next couple of rounds, so don't worry, always a tricky one when designing a motif, chain stitches can be a little tighter than needed, but adding the cover stitches always seems to stretch them out and make the round grow. 

ROUND 7: ch2, [counts as first dc (tr)], 5dc [5tr], in first ch5 loop, 5dc [5tr], in next ch5 loop, ch3, 5dc [5tr] in next ch5 sp, 5dc [5tr], in next ch sp, ch3, repeat to end ch2, sl st to complete, cut and weave in ends. [10dc [10tr], each side]
NOTE:basically here you are tuning the decorative centre into a traditional Octagon. 


CLOSE UP OF ROUND 7


ROUND 8: Att. yarn in a ch2 sp, ch2 counts as first dc [tr], dc [tr], ch2, dc [tr], in first ch3 sp, 1dc [1tr], in next 10sts, dc [tr], ch2, dc [tr], in next ch2 sp, repeat to end, sl st to complete,  cut and weave in ends. [12dc [12tr], each side]




CLOSE UP OF ROUND 8

ROUND 9: Att. yarn in a ch2 sp, ch2 counts as first dc [tr], dc [tr], ch2 dc [tr], in first ch2 sp, 1dc [1tr], in next 12sts, dc [tr], ch2, dc [tr], in next ch2 sp, repeat to end sl st to complete, cut and weave in ends. (14dc [14tr] each side]




CLOSE UP OF ROUND 9

ROUND 10: Att. yarn in any ch2 sp, ch2 counts as first dc [tr], dc [tr], ch2, dc [tr], in first, ch2 sp, 1dc [1tr], in next 14sts, dc [tr], ch2, dc [tr], in next ch2 sp, repeat to end, sl st to complete, cut and weave in ends. [16dc [16tr] each side]






Please feel free to create you own colour ways, i've seen some beautiful and stunning colour combinations for this Secret Garden pattern..have fun 

SHADES OF BLUE SECRET GARDEN

JOIN AS YOU GO
Use a sl st at the end of each st to join to the motif before

INFILLS




Make 12 part 1 patterns to round 10.
JOIN AS YOU GO ON ROUND 10 side by side in 4 rows of 3 motifs




BORDER PATTERN
NOTE: Add the border before you add the edging infills

Round 1: sc [dc], in every st, sc [dc], ch2, sc [dc], in each corner sp, and ch 24 between octagons, sl st to complete round.

Round 2: dc, [tr], in every st, dc [tr], ch2, dc [tr], in every corner, sl st to complete round. 

Round 3: Moss stitch rounds from round 3. Start in any corner, sc [dc], ch2, sc [dc], in corner sp, ch1, miss a st, sc [dc] in next st, ch1, miss a st, repeat to next corner, sc [dc], ch2, sc [dc] in every corner sp....repeat to end sl st to complete.



Round 4: start in a corner sc [dc], ch2 sc [dc], ch1, sc [dc], in next ch1 sp, repeat corners and moss st to end, sl st to complete round.

Round 5+: Repeat round 4, add as many rows of moss stitch as you like.

NOTE: Moss stitch can pull up slightly tighter so if your tension is tight then use a bigger hook.

This is a very versatile stitch and by just changing the colour you can create some interesting patterns


TRIANGLULAR 'HOLES' AT THE EDGES
THE SECOND FILL IN WILL BE RELEASED IN NOVEMBER AFTER THE SECOND WORKSHOP

SECOND EDGE INFILL TRIANGLE PATTERN



A Simple chai st infil for the outer triangles.....I tried lots of variations, but wasn't happy with any of them until this one, hope you love it as much as me.

THIS IS NOT A CHART

 Just a diagram to help work the stitch count out. There are more sts at the bottom to the top so some become spaces and some are worked one after the other
The 'X' are the missed stitches and the numbers are the chain stitches up and then down again.

PATTERN
25sts across the bottom of the triangle...mark the centre st. helps here.
16 sts each side at the top

Att. yarn to the 3rd st from the corner, ch3, sl st, into the second st from the corner at the top, ch3 return, sc [dc], into the same st, 

sc [dc], into the next st, a space, sc [dc], in the next st, 

ch4 miss a st at the top sl st into the next st, ch4 return, sl st into the same st, 

sc [dc]into the next st, sc [dc], into the next st, 

ch5, miss a st, at the top sl st into the next st, ch5 return sl st into the same st, 

sc [dc] into he next st, sc [dc] into the next st, ch6, miss a st, at the top, sl st into the next st, ch6 return sl st, into the same st

from now on work into every st at the bottom and keep missing a st between ch loops at the top, until you get to ch6 return, 

then its a gap st between loops at the top and the bottom again.

Follow the diagram the 'x' are the missed stitches the ch10 sl st, must go between the join of the original Octagons.

 COLOUR: I used one of the colours of the Octagons but you could use a different colour if you wished

DIAMOND/SPEAR SHAPE INFIL  
TIP: Can i suggest beginners do one with out the join as you go to get the feel of the pattern before trying to join it, but if you feel able to go ahead and join as you go with the first then have fun

PATTERN
A finger wrap of 5 or 6 wraps



ROUND 1: 12sc, [12dc], into the circle

ROUND 2: Starting at the outer point, ch6, counts as first tr [dtr] and ch3 point,
1tr [1dtr] into the first st, 


1dc [1tr], into the next 3 sts,



dc [tr], ch3, dc [tr], into the next st, (side point),



1dc [1tr] into the next st, 1dc [1tr], ch3 1dc [1tr], into the next st (bottom point) 


1dc [1tr] in the next st, 1dc [1tr], ch3, 1dc [1tr], into next st, (second side point), 


complete with 1dc [1tr], in next 3 sts, 

sl st into the ch 6 loop, to complete



NOTE: Use the second ch st on each point to join the diamond/spear to the dip and points of the shells of round 9 of part 1.




PART 3: INFILL TRIANGLE...IN ONE COLOUR 
NOTES: another really simple 2 round motif, join as you go into the point of the diamond/spear shape and the points of the shell stitch.
Again try before doing the join as you go for beginners.

COLOUR NOTE: THIS TRIANGLE MOTIF SHOULD BE IN ONE COLOUR ONLY 
so that the 'petals' of part 2 stand out, not as the multi coloured how to pictures look 


The usual finger wrap of 6wraps



ROUND 1: 12sc [12dc], into circle

ROUND 2: ch6, 1tr [1dtr], into same st, 



1dc [1r], into next 3 sts, 1tr [1dtr], ch3, 1tr [1dtr], into next st, 

1dc [1tr], into next 3 sts, 1tr [1dtr], ch3, 1tr [1dtr],  
into next st, finish with 1 dc [1tr], into last 3 sts, sl st into ch6 loop.

JOINING NOTE: replace the middle ch st with a sl st to join to the cushion, so for the first point...
 ch4 , replace the 5th ch with a sl st, to join, then ch1, 1tr to complete first corner.

The triangle sits between each diamond/spear shape of part 2. 


sl st into the ch3 point of the diamond and the point of the shell st and the second point of the diamond

All the triangles of each centre circle in one colour but on each block a different colour

Don't forget to use the code SP17 




Made in Aran it should be at least 16" 40.5cm across


PART 4: TURNING THE CENTRE CIRCLE INTO A SQUARE

CIRCLE TO SQUARE: Blocked its approx 15-16" square



ADDING CORNERS

You now have the correct number of sts to divide the circles into 4 sections
4 x 36sts, using stitch markers.

4 colours requires for each circle, each corner in a different colour 


 Add a 4 round granny shell corner to the 4 corner of each circle.
You will use 25sts, of the 36sts. Leaving 11sts, unused EACH SIDE.

NOTES: These corners are like making the start of a Granny Shell Shawl, you need the ch1 between the granny shells for ease, because it is to go around the curve of the circle. 
And you need to do a longer st as the first st for each granny shell next to the circle, again for ease, (thats just the first st not the complete granny shell).

PREPARING CENTR CIRCLE FOR CORNERSROW 1: att yarn in ch3 sp of the first diamond, hdc [htr], in the next 5sts, hdc [htr], in the next 3 sps, (that's the ch3 sp of the triangle), the next ch3 sp, (the diamond) and the ch3 sp of the next triangle making 8sts for each pair of diamond and triangle.
 repeat hdc [htr], in next 5 sts, and the next 3 x ch3 sps, to the end, sl st to complete. (144sts)

Starting at the marker 

Row 1: att. yarn 3sts from marker,


 miss 2sts, 1tr [1dtr], 2dc, [2tr], ch2, 2dc [2tr], 1tr [1dtr], in marked st, miss 2sts, sl st into next st, ch3, miss 2sts, sl st into next st, along, turn. 
(2 granny shells) 


Row 2: 2dc [2tr],  into the sp, between circle and tr, [dtr] of round 1, 
ch1, 3dc [3tr], ch2, 3dc [3tr], into the next ch2 sp, (point of triangle), 

ch1, 2dc [2tr], 1tr [1dtr] into the last sp (between the last granny shell and the circle),

  miss 2sts, sl st into next st (7sts from the marker), 

ch3, miss 2sts, sl st into next st, along, turn. (4 granny shells) 


Row 3: 2dc [2tr] into first sp, between circle and granny shell or row below, ch1, 3dc [3tr], into next ch1 sp, ch1, 3dc [3tr], ch2, 3dc [3tr] into next ch2 sp (point of triangle), 

ch1, 3dc [3tr] into next ch1 sp, ch1, 2dc [2tr], 1tr [1dtr],  into last sp, 
(between circle and granny triangle), 

 miss 2sts, sl st into next st, (10th st, from marker) 
 ch3, miss 2sts, sl st into next st, turn.(6 granny shells)

Row 4: Repeat row 3, with the extra side granny shell 
sl st to complete, cut and weave in ends (8 granny shells)
Repeat for each corner all in a different colour

Marked st is number 1, so you should finish on the 13th st from the marker each side

Leaving 11sts unused on each side

PART 5: FINAL JOINING ROUNDS 
 3 ROUNDS OF GRANNY SHELLS

NOTE: Don't forget to do ch1, between each granny shell for ease or it will be too tight and pull up, and 3 ch at each corner.
NOTES FOR ADDING GRANNY SHELLS ROUND 1: 4 granny shells on each side of the triangle and 11 sts that will allow 13 granny shells on each side.
one in each of the triangle sps, = 4, 
one granny shell in the space between the granny shell and the circle not into a stitch. 
 3 in the 11side sts. = 13granny shells on each side


ROUND 1:  all different colours, 3dc,[3tr], ch3, 3dc, [3tr], in each corner sp, 3dc [3tr], in each 11 side sps, ch1 between each granny shell, sl st to complete. [13 granny shells each side]

ROUND 2: all in parchment colour, 3dc, ch3 3dc in corners and 3dc in each of the 12 sps, ch1 between all granny shells sl st, to complete. [14 granny shells each side) 

ROUND 3: all in blue joining colour, Join as you go round using a sl st after each granny shell to join the squares together, 3dc, ch3, 3dc, in corners, 3dc, in each of the 13sps, ch1 between each granny shell, sl st to complete [15 granny shells each side]


FIGURES ABOUT THE YARN USAGE FROM A YARN PACK
Some figures to help with your yarn usage:
circle up to triangle in fills..........approx. 95g
with triangle corners added........approx. 130g
with one round of gs added........approx. 145g
with two rounds of gs added.......approx. 162g 
x by the number of blocks you make will give you an idea so far of the yarn usage from an Aran pack 
with the smaller blanket you could add a couple more gs rounds to each block before joining them together if you wanted.

Still a final border stitch to add yet so a 4 BLOCK blanket will use approx. 656g plus say 200g for border leaves enough to make a cushion or two
A 9 BLOCK  blanket will use approx. 1458g and leave just enough for a small finishing border
4 done, 5 to go....for a 9 block blanket

Blocks of 4 or 9 Aran weight or even 12 DK can be joined together to make a fabulous 
#spinning top blanket 
Love all the different colours but the top one is my favourite of them all i think...



YARN PACK NOTS: 4 Blocks for small blanket and a couple of cushion 
If using the Yarn pack this is the size blanket you will need to make if you want to make a cushion out of the pack too.
The Yarn pack will only make the large 9 block blanket  with no cushion
each block weighs 155g 


Having agreed to do probably a little more than I could manage this month, the Spinning Top Blanket, hasn't been completed as quickly as i had hoped..... 


I now have 6 blocks together and think that 6 blocks would also makes a fabulous blanket too, so now we have 4, 6, 9 or 12 blocks as options for a blanket, all with different uses.

BUT WHAT SIZE BLANKET TO MAKE?
I don't have a place in the house specifically for this blanket so nothing to guide me...
OPTIONS:
4 Blocks: is a gorgeous baby blanket or lap blanket for your knees in a car

6 Blocks: is big enough to wrap around your shoulders or go on the bottom of a single bed or as a sofa throw
8 Blocks: would also make a fabulous wrap blanket or bed runner for the bottom of a double or king size bed.

9 Blocks: would make a big blanket that sat diagonally makes a fab cover for a double/king size bed

12 Blocks: would make a giant of a blanket for a King size bed...although the yarn pack would NOT make this size.


My Dilema is to decide which size i actually make...I had thought maybe i would stop at a 6 blocks get it finished and add the border for you all to see and use the other 3 blocks i have part made for a couple of square cushions so that i have a circular cushion 2 square cushions and a throw......

But looking at it wrapped around me i'm thinking the big 9 block blanket is still the one i really would like to complete 



Using 3 or 4 rows of granny shells to finish each square, the final border rounds will be a simple dc [tr] border in the same colour as the last join as you go round for each square






PART 6: FINAL BORDER

SPINNING TOP BLANKET BORDER

Finally i managed to complete the Spinning Top Blanket...


it kept me warm and the boys loved sitting on it and me while i added the last block

It's a beastie of a blanket at over 5' square and weighs a ton....a real snuggler. 
 if I had more of the blue i would have added more rounds but no more to be found in my workroom at all...so one round added to the blue granny shells and it finished nothing fancy just wanted the riot of colours contained


So in the end the i decided that a real simple border of dc [tr],  something to contain all this spinning tops and colours was all i needed for my version, plus i was running out of yarns as i didn't use a yarn pack for mine.

If you have a yarn pack and are making the spinning top then any favourite colour you have enough of would work as a simple border to the Blanket...there is a lot going on in this design so it doesn't need anything to fussy to complete it..a wider border in the same colour would be perfect.

BORDER PATTERN
US terms and UK terms in brackets
Aran 5mm hook
DK 4mm hook

After joining 9 or 12 blocks together a simple round or two of dc [tr], I felt was all that was needed...do more than one if you have enough of your chosen colour but one is perfect.

FINAL ROUND 

CORNERS: 
2dc [2tr], ch2, 2dc [2tr], 
1dc [1tr], in every st, and every ch sp too, on each side, so per granny shell and sp you should do 4 sts. 


 1dc ]1tr], in the ch sp, 1dc [1tr], in the sp between the joined blocks thats 2 joined each side

If you have done a smaller blanket then do several rows of the same favourite colour from the blanket, all thats needed with a buy blanket like the Spinning top...or have fun and make up your own border

Some of the fabulous Spinning Top Blankets that have already been made or are well on their way to completion from group members on Facebook...

All these wonderful hookers and more can be found enjoying my patterns and sharing their makes..its a growing group of over 10,000 members now 

several more on the Facebook group to see in all their glory

Love them all and sorry it took me so long to complete mine. Several options for fabulous borders for you to have a go at and get creative with your own.

And mine draped over a chair
