Floret Throw Rug

Floret Throw Rug


Materials:-

4 100g  Balls Panda Circus Yarn
2 Ball of 8 ply acrylic yarn in matching or contrasting colours
1 ball or scraps of ''Feathers'' or any type of fluffy acrylic yarn in 
   matching or contrasting colours
 4.00mm crochet hook

Instructions:-
I am using Australian crochet terms here however the instructions to do the floret stitch are in US terms.

Chain 123

How to do the floret stitch is found here:-
I did approximately 150 rows.

Border:-
Treble (Aus) DC  evenly around the edges of the rug.  Work 2 trebles 1 chain 2 trebles in each corner.
Continue working in the floret stitch pattern for as many rows as desired (I did 5 rows all together).
To finish off I did a row on SC (UK) around the edge.

Note:-  To keep to the floret stitch in the border it is important to reverse the direction each 2nd row to keep the pattern on the correct side.

Weave in the ends to finish.
