Round About Motif

And this is my first motif ... Round About or Little Round About. Make a nice sets of coasters or use to embellish clothing, bags, purses ...

I used a size J hook on these, however, you can use whatever you would like. I also will be trying in thread , I think these would look very pretty as an embellishment to a garment. They take a small amount of yarn - great for stash busting!

Ch 8, join to lst chain.

1. Ch 3, 23 dc in loop, join to top of ch 3; 24 dc.
2. *ch 3, skip 1 stitch, dc in next stitch* around, join in list sc.
3. Slip st into first loop, *ch3, skip 1 st, sc in next st* around, join 1st sc.
(stop here for the little round about)
4. Slip st into loop, ch3, 2 dc in same loop, *sc in sc, ch3, 3dc in loop* around, sc, fasten off.
