Black Eyed Susan

 

I used a #5-ish crochet thread (Herrschnerr’s Brand Value packs, stated as #10, but they are really thick, much more like a 5 or 8) in yellow and black and a #5 steel hook.

Note to testers: I think the center may be too high, perhaps removing rnd 3?

CENTER

  1. With black into a magic circle, sc 12, join with ss to beg sc

    [12 sc]

  2. 2 Sc into ea st around, join with ss to beg sc

    [24 sc]

  3. sc in each st around, finish off with ss to beg st

    [24 sc]

  4. With yellow, sc in each st around, join with ss to beg st (do not finish off)

    [24 sc]

PETALS (Make 12)

  1. bpsc around 1st sc in rnd 4 of center, ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each sc down, ch 1

    [7 sc, 1 ch]

  2. Working up the other side of the chain, sc in the back side of 6 ch, (sc, dc) in last ch

    [7 sc, 1 dc]

  3. sc in each sc back down the petal, ss into the same sc of the center that in which you started

    [7 sc, ss]

  4. skip 1 sc, ss into next and repeat 1-3 for next petal

    Repeat 1-4 until you have 12 petals. Ss to 1st petal to finish.
