New *Free* Pattern: "Mable"

This little pattern is dainty yet elegant. I love the way it turned out, even though I lost inspiration many times along the way.

  • CSDC = chainless starting double crochet (improved)
  • BP = complete the stitch around the back post of the stitch indicated
  • FP = complete the stitch around the front post of the stitch indicated 
  • Cluster = holding back the last loop of all stitches in cluster set, crochet the number of stitches into the stitch or space indicated, then yarn over and pull through all loops on hook
  • Popcorn = complete the number of stitches into the stitch or space indicated, then drop the loop from the hook; place the hook in the first stitch of the popcorn set, grab the dropped loop, and pull it through

Pattern Notes

  • Join all rounds with a SLST to the first stitch of the round, unless otherwise indicated.
  • If a round begins with a "CSDC" you may choose to work a CH 2 instead. CSDC or CH 2 will always count as the first DC of the round. If coupled with a FP-SLST or BP-SLST, it is the first FPDC or BPDC of the round.
  • I recommend crocheting over your starting thread as you work the beginning rounds.
  • Pattern repeats are marked with an asterisk (*).
  • Not all stitches that are skipped will be detailed with a ‘sk’ instruction. When it says to ‘sk’ a stitch, it is meant to clarify where you work your next stitches, when it would be otherwise confusing without the instruction. Other skipped stitches that are not detailed are understood by the instructions where to work your next stitches.
