How to Read Granny Square Charts: Babouska Rose



Just as I promised in my last granny how to post here
here is a chart I found online with a protruding flower, courtesy of Kazuko Ryokai and this lovely granny is called Babouska Rose. Here's the chart and below it I have written the pattern down. Sharpen up your hooks and let's start.


Chain 5 and join to form ring.
Round 1: ch 1 and sc 6 in ring. sl st to end it.

Round 2: ch 1, sc 1, "ch 3 sk 1, sc1".
Repeat twice from "to ". sl st with beginning ch to end it.

Round 3: ch 1 and over the chain of the previous row, work the following pattern: 1sc, 1hdc, 3dc, 1hdc, 1sc. Repeat this pattern for the other two chains. sl st with beginning ch to end it.

Round 4: ch 2, sc at the back of the hdc from previous row, ch3 and sc at the back of the hdc of the same petal. Repeat this 5 more times. sl st to end it.

Round 5: ch 1 and over the chain of the previous row, work the following pattern: 1sc, 1hdc, 3dc, 1hdc, 1sc. Repeat this pattern for the other two chains. sl st with beginning ch to end it.

Round 6: ch 2, sc at the back of the middle dc (the second of the three dcs) from the previous row, ch5 and sc at the back of the middle dc of the next petal. Repeat this 5 more times. sl st to end it.
Here I crocheted the chain at the back and sc between petals instead the middle dc. You may want to try to see if it is better than in the pattern.

Round 7: ch 1 and over the chain of the previous row, work the following pattern: 1sc, 1hdc, 5dc, 1hdc, 1sc. Repeat this pattern for the other two chains. sl st with beginning ch to end it.

You made the rose with round 7. Now for the green border.
Insert new (green) yarn where you sl st in the previous row and sc 1. Ch 5 and in the 1st dc of the next petal make a 3tr puff st. ch 5 and make another 3tr puff in the same st as the first one. Ch 2 and sc in the 5th dc from the previous row. Ch 3 and sc in the 1st dc of the next petal below, then ch 2 and make the puff stitch as before. Next, ch 5 and sc in the 3rd dc of the next petal, ch 5 and make the puff set. Repeat the pattern for the side. Finally ch 5 and sl st in the beginning ch to end it.

Insert new color for the outer border. Start where you ended the last round. Ch 3 (counts as the 1st dc) then dc 4. Skip the puff, in between the puffs - dc 3, ch3, dc 3 (on the same chain), dc 9, skip the puff and do the corner pattern. Repeat this for the other side. When you make the last puff, dc4 and sl st in the initial chain to finish it.

The gorgeous afghan below is taken from the Sewing Daisies Blog where she gives info on the colors she used and the hook size.
