Hungarian rug pattern
Here are the directions I came up with by looking at the original part that was given to me to decipher… oops, looks like I need to fix it a bit. (edit when reposting to Word Press, there’s a bit that needed tweaking. I’m taking pics as I go.)
form ring in preferred manner, *ch 4, (leaving the last lp on the hook) 4 tr in ring, yo and draw through all 5 lps on hook, ch4, 1sc in ring* rpt 3 times
R2) *ch1, 12 tr in closing loop on 1st cluster, sc in sc* rpt 3 times. end yarn
R3) with next color. attach yarn with a sc between 8th and 9th tr of any 12tr group, *ch 4, (leaving the last lps of all BPTC on hook) 1 BPTC around last 4 st of this ‘petal’, and 1 BPTC around the first 4 st of next petal, yo and draw through all loops on hook (there should be 9), chain 4, sc between 4th and 5th tr, ch 4, 1 BPTC cluster around next 4 tr, ch 4, sc between 8th and 9th tr* rpt around.
R4) *8 tr in closing st of cluster, sc in sc, 12tr in closing st of next cluster (corner) sc in sc* rpt around. End off.
Repeat rows 3 and 4 as needed.
I’ve actually seen one of these at St Helens (the only other one I HAVE seen mind you) that changed colors every row.
