Creating a crochet pattern for a round motif runner, blouse, or shawl can be a complex and detailed process, and it’s challenging to provide a full pattern in a single response. However, I can certainly provide you with a basic round motif pattern that you can use as a starting point. You can adjust the size and design elements to suit your preferences and intended project.
Here’s a simple round motif pattern:
- Worsted weight yarn in your choice of color
- Appropriate-sized crochet hook (usually recommended on the yarn label)
- Yarn needle for weaving in ends
- Ch: Chain
- Sl st: Slip stitch
- Sc: Single crochet
- Dc: Double crochet
- Tr: Treble crochet
- Cluster: (Dc, ch 2, dc) in the same stitch
- Start with a magic ring. If you’re not familiar with the magic ring, you can begin with a chain-4 loop and join it with a slip stitch to form a ring.
- Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc), work 11 dc into the ring. Join with a sl st to the top of the beginning ch-3. (12 dc)
- Round 2: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc), dc in the same stitch. 2 dc in the next st Repeat from * to * around. Join with a sl st to the top of the beginning ch-3. (24 dc)
- Round 3: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc), dc in the same stitch, dc in the next st. 2 dc in the next st, dc in the next st Repeat from * to * around. Join with a sl st to the top of the beginning ch-3. (36 dc)
- Round 4: Ch 4 (counts as the first tr), tr in the same stitch, ch 3, skip 2 sts, tr in the next st, ch 3 Repeat from * to * around. Join with a sl st to the 4th ch of the beginning ch-4.
- Round 5: Sl st into the first ch-3 space. Ch 4 (counts as the first tr and ch-1), (tr, ch 2, 2 tr) in the same space (this creates a corner). Ch 1, (2 tr, ch 2, 2 tr) in the next ch-3 space Repeat from * to * around, ch 1, join with a sl st to the 3rd ch of the beginning ch-4.
- Continue to work additional rounds, repeating Round 5, to expand the size of your motif. You can change colors and add more intricate stitches or lace patterns to make it more detailed and beautiful.
For a runner, blouse, or shawl, you’ll need to make multiple motifs and join them together, designing the layout as you see fit. You can also add edging and embellishments to enhance the beauty of your project. Be sure to check the gauge and adapt the pattern as needed for your specific yarn and hook size.
