How To Crochet A Simple Center Piece

By: Michael Sellick, The Crochet Crowd

Learn how to crochet a simple center piece for the holidays. Only one skein of yarn is used for this free crochet pattern. To accompany this pattern there are two fabulous videos.

Materials:

  • Bernat Softee Chunky 1 Skein
  • Size J Hook, or 6.0 mm

 

Instructions:

Create Slip Knot and Chain 4. Slip hook through the starting chain, then slip stitch to form a ring.
Chain 3, then Double Crochet 11 Times around the ring. Slip stitch the final to the top of the chain 3.
Chain 3, then Put 1 Double Crochet where you began the chain up, then place 2 Double Crochet into each stitch around the circle. Slip Stitch at the end. This will double your size.
Chain 3, then Put 1 Double Crochet into the next stitch, then *put 2 Double Crochet into the next stitch, then place 1 Double Crochet into the next stitch and repeat from * all the way around, slip stitch at the end. In the tutorial Mikey says this is the 1 - 2 Ratio.
Chain 3, then Put 1 Double crochet into the next 2 stitches, then put 2 Double Crochet into the next stitch, then place 1 Double Crochet into the next 2 stitches, repeat from * all the way around. Slip stitch at the end. In tutorials this is the 2 - 2 Ratio.
Chain 3, Mikey demonstrates going behind the stitches on the 3rd string. It creates an obvious pattern line. See video if confused by this. *Put 1 Double Crochet into the next 3 strings behind the stitches, then put 2 Double Crochet into the next string repeat from *. Slip stitch at the end, Mikey refers to this as the 3 - 2 Ratio.
Chain 3, Create a ruffle. Place 3 Double Crochet into each stitch on the circle. Place the stitches as normal. Slip stitch at the end.
Chain 1, then *chain 3, place 1 Single Crochet into the very next stitch and repeat from *. This makes the edges look random and no so uniform. Slip stitch at the end.
Cast off using a weaving technique.
