Xanadu Project

Crochet Design, Crochet Patterns

This morning I started a little crochet and wanted it to be different. Lately I have progressed to the advanced level of crochet so I threw some of those stitches in and went with the flow. The end result surprised me!

Later on today after lunch, I thought I’d better write down the pattern. I picked this up, looked at it, turned it over and looked at it more, but I could not remember how I did it!!!!

Not getting too worried, I grabbed my yarn and hook, a pencil and notepad, this first Xanadu, and got started.

In it I use the Jacob’s Ladder, but in the first one it wasn’t right, so this time I made sure I got it right, and then the pattern evolved of its own accord…

Now it is complete, and here is the photos:

And now here is the pattern!

I used DK yarn and a 4mm hook.

You will want to use 4 colours to achieve the same look as I did, but it’s up to you.

UK terminology used throughout.

Row 1

Using colour A, ch 3, ss in third ch from hook to make a ring.

Row 2

ch 4, (htr, ch 2) 7 times in the ring, join with ss in 2nd ch of beg ch. 8 htr, 8 ch 2 spaces.

Row 3

beg dc in same st, ch 9, (dc in next htr, ch 7) all the way around, ss in first dc, fasten off. Change to colour B.

Row 4

beg dc in any dc, (ch 7, dc in next dc) all the way around, ss in first dc, fasten off. Change to colour C.

Row 5

beg dc in any dc, (ch 7, dc in next dc) all the way around, ss in first dc, fasten off. Change to colour A.

Row 6

beg dc in any dc, (ch 7, dc in next dc) all the way around, ss in first dc.

Row 7

Now you will proceed with the Jacob’s Ladder, pulling through all those hoops, colour A will at the top when you are done.
