Variation on a Pattern

This is quite okay you know, to come up with some of your own to add to someone else’s pattern. However you cannot copyright,  share or sell the pattern as your own. So, with that in mind, I will share what I did with one of Annie’s patterns. She had this really cute little afghan that was quite fine on it’s own……


And this is what i did  ….


I did a fan stitch around and then did a series of ch2 and ch-3 slip stitched (instead of single crochet (sc))around.  Then as one thing leads to another, thought it would make a really nice edging for anything.

Fan Stitch Edging

This requires a multiple of 6 sts for each design repeat.

Row 1: Sc in first st, sk 2 sts, fan of 4 dc in next st, sk 2 sts, rep from * around or across, sl st join if necessary.

Row 2: *Sl st in sc, sk dc, sl st in next ch-1 sp, ch 2, sl st in next ch-1 sp, ch 3, sl st in next ch-1 sp, ch 2, sl st in next ch-1 sp, sk next dc, rep from *, fasten off at end of row/round.
