    Camelia: Regarding the “Flower Pendant crochet pattern in Irish Crochet Style”

    “R5: working on the front loops only and over the cord make 1sc in each st from R4, drop the padding cord, make 1sc in the back loops of the sts at base of first 5 picot loops, turn…” (something appears to be missing here), could you please help me. Thanks.

      Hi Carol,
      Rows R4-R6 represent a petal worked on the cord.

      – R4 consists of making petal from base to tip having the cord as base, turn work
      – R5 means working back on the petal from tip to base in the sts from R4 and on top of cord; when arriving at base, drop the cord and join petal to the base, turn work
      I don’t think there is anything missing from R5, but if not making sense, just try something that works. You’ll have room for 8 petals, created at back of the 32 sts from R2, and at the back of the picot loops, so allocate 4sts per petal and it hopefully it will work out fine.

      all the best,
      Camelia
