SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Caron One Pound yarn:
    • 26-oz white (A)
    • 23-oz Sky Blue (B)
  • Crochet hooks: sizes J/10, K/10-1/2
  • Yarn needle
  • Removable stitch markers
  • Waste yarn (WY) or knitters safety pins (holders)

STITCHES USED:

Chain (ch); Double crochet (dc); Half double crochet (hdc); Reverse single crochet (Rev sc); Single crochet (sc)

DIRECTIONS:

Refer to photo. Two-Color Spirals are worked individually, then sewn into panels. Edging is worked around each panel, along sides of each panel, then panels are joined and final edging is worked.

TWO-COLOR SPIRAL:

Make 98. Spiral motif measures 4", using larger hook. Using larger hook and A, wrap yarn around finger to form a ring.

Round 1 (RS): Cont with A, * ch 1, work [sc, hdc, 2 dc] in ring *, remove hook, place last st on holder; join B with a slip st in ring; repeat * to * using B – 4 sts in each color, beg in ring.
Round 2: Cont with B, working into sts of A-section, * work [2 dc in sc, 2 dc in hdc, and 2 dc in each dc] – 8 sts worked into previous color section *, remove hook, place st on holder; return to A-st on holder, cont with A, working into sts of B-section, repeat * to *.
Round 3: Cont with A, working into 8-dc of B-section, * work 2 dc in each st – 16 sts work into previous color section *, remove hook, place st on holder; return to B-st on holder, cont with B, repeat * to *.
Round 4: Cont with B, working into dc of A-section, * work 2 dc in each of next 3 dc *, fasten off B; return to A-st on holder, cont with A, working into B-section, repeat * to *.
Fasten off A. Sew Spirals together as 7 panels, 14 spirals each, matching colors; tack down beg and end of Spirals on each panel.

PANEL EDGING:

Because of the scalloped edge, the number of sts may vary on some scallops; use judgment to space evenly. Short ends are squared-off by working 2 corners at each end (dc, ch 3, dc in one st); each Spiral has (dc, [ch-2, sc] 3 times, ch 2, dc along the scallop) and panel ends have (dc [ch-2, sc] twice, ch 2, dc) between corners, with corner dc counting as first or last dc in these counts.

(RS) RS facing, using larger hook, join B with a slip st in corner of end spiral (approx 2 sts from join), ready to work along long side.

Round 1: First Spiral – Ch 6 (counts as dc, ch 3), dc in same space – first corner completed, ** [ch 2, skip 2, sc in next st] 3 times (approx 4 sts rem before join between first and second Spirals), ch 2, skip 2 sts, dc in next st – first Spiral side completed (2 sts rem unworked before join); cont along long side, * ch 2, skip first 2 sts of next Spiral, dc in next st (4 sts unworked at join), [ch 2, skip 2, sc in next st] 3 times, ch 2, skip 2, dc in next st; rep from * for each Spiral to end of panel; work [ch 3, dc] in same space as last dc for corner; working across end, [ch 2, skip 2, sc in next st] twice, ch 2, + work corner (dc, ch 3, dc in next st); rep from ** for opposite side, end at +, join with a slip st to third ch of beg ch 6, slip st in corner space.
Round 2: * In corner space, work [3 sc, place a marker (pm), 3 sc]; work 3 sc in each ch-space to next corner; rep from * around, join with a slip st to first st – 213 sts each side, 15 sts each end. Fasten off B.

SIDE EDGING:

RS facing, cont with larger hook, join A at corner marker, ready to work along long side only.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in same space as joining; * sc, ch 1, skip 1; rep from * to next marker, end sc in marked space, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as dc), work [dc, ch 1] in each ch-1 space across, end dc in last sc, turn.
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first dc, * ch 1, sc in next ch-space; rep from * across, end last rep sc in top of beg ch.
Fasten off. Work Edging on opposite side of panel. Repeat Side-Edging on rem panels.

Place 2 panels tog, WS's facing. Matching sts along one long side, using larger hook and B, work 1 row Rev sc through both panels, joining them. Fasten off. Repeat for rem panels. Weave in ends.

SIDE EDGING:

RS facing, using smaller hook and B, join yarn with a slip st at corner, ready to work along side.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in each st to corner, do not turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, working through the front loops only, work Rev sc across.
Row 3: Ch 1, working through back loops only, work sc across.
Fasten off. Repeat for opposite side edge.

TOP AND BOTTOM EDGING:

RS facing, using smaller hook and B, join yarn with a slip st at corner, ready to work across end.

Row 1: Ch 1, work sc evenly across. Note: Across Spirals, work [2 sc, dc] or [2 sc, skip 1], to keep piece flat, turn.
Row 2: Ch 1, * sc, ch 3, skip 2; rep from *, end sc in last st, turn.
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first st, in each ch-3 space work [sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc], end sc in last st.
Fasten off. Repeat for opposite end.

BLOCKING:

Lay piece on flat surface; spray with water (add a little fabric softener for a softer fabric) and allow to dry. Finished size: 62"x68" .
