Aloha April matching sham! ~Pattern~
So I decided I didnt want to match the pillows exactly I wanted the second sham to look like its part of the same 'set'.
I supersized the motif, pattern ajustments as fallows--
Working with a double strand (holding 2 strans together) and a large hook (I used a P)
Ch 8 slst into ring
sc 22 into ring
ch1 sc 2 into ring, ch 9 slst into top of sc, sc 4 ch 9 slst, sc 4 ch 9 slst, sc 4 ch 9 slst, sc 4 ch 9 slst, sc 4 ch 9 slst, sc slst to firt sc (should have 6 loops)
Then work the fallowing over the chain 9 ~~sc 2, hdc 2, dc 4, trb 4 ch 3 slst, trb 3,dc 4, hdc 2, sc 2, slst into the middle 2 st between chain 9's ~~and repeat from ~~
For the corner motif ajustments--
Ch 6 slst join in the round.
SC 12 around the chain slst to join
SC 2, chain 7 slst into top of stitch, sc 4 ch 7 slst into top of stitch, sc 4 ch 7 slst into top of stitch, sc 4 ch 7 slst into top of stitch,sc 4 ch 7 slst into top of stitch, sc 2 slst to join. (Should leave you with 5 chain loops)
Work over all the chain loops-
Sc 2, hdc 2, dc 2, trb 3 ch 3 (this chain will be your join stitch so when you are joining to an other motif ch 1 slst into motif ch 1 instead) slst into top of stitch, trb, 2 dc, 2 hdc, 2sc
I now have a matching set of spring/summer pillow sham's!
I cant wait for the voting process over on r/crochet to start, as there are so many other people in the contest with great projects to go up against.
