Flower with stamens crochet pattern in Irish Crochet Style
The following flower pattern is based on an antique Irish crochet motif from Priscilla Irish Crochet Book No.1, published by The Priscilla Publishing Co., Boston, Massachusetts in 1912. Now, you may realise the reason why I've included so many of these motifs in my Collection. We are celebrating a Centenary since this compilation of Irish Crochet designs was published. HURRAY!
In this pattern, we'll crochet over padding cord and I will introduce you to the famous Clone Knot, or Clones Knot.
About the Clones Knot
To work the Clones Knot, make 5ch (sometimes more, or less according to the thread you are using, or according to instructions given), then take the thread around the hook same as for dc, pass the hook down under the chain and catch another loop, then take another loop from the top and one from below and continue to catch the loops alternately until you have 14-20 loops on the hook. The loops will nearly cover the chain. Draw a loop through all these loops on the hook and then another one through the last to draw the loops close together. Finish with a sl st at the base of ch.
