Fleurs de Lis for Paris: Day 5

In the same Victorian magazine that the Fleur de Lis counterpane pattern comes from I came across a crocheted flower design: a Hawthorn.  I adapted the pattern to trim for a new hat.

Here is the pattern.  If you want to try it, here is how I interpreted it in Canadian/US terms:  plain = slip stitch; long = double crochet; double = single crochet.  Flowers: I made a magic circle, chain 1; then (4 double crochet, slip stitch) 5 times; I fastened off, leaving a few inches yarn.  For the stamen, I just made a knot on both ends of 2″ pink yarn, (and used the flowers yarn ends to tie them across the centre into place). For the leaves: Chain 7, single crochet in back loop of 2nd chain from hook and in next 5; then 6 single crochet up the other side of the chain; slip stitch in the first single crochet made; fasten off.

The original Victorian magazine pattern has another small error in one of today’s rows; so if you are knitting from the magazine (the clipping I’ll share below here) be sure you remember to knit it correctly:

ROW 44: should end knit 4, NOT knit 2, seam 2
