I grabbed a 5 mm crochet hook and white cotton yarn last week and hooked this scatter cushion (12 pentagons) to show you I can also make something that is neither scarf nor throw! I am finally enjoying the pure joy of hooking in monochrome but have to admit that I started a throw resembling a patchwork blanket a few days ago. I am still keeping it under wraps to see whether I like the way it is turning out, but so far so good!
What are you working on? I see many bloggers are participating in the Crochet Mood Blanket CAL and it is interesting to see what associations all the bloggers are making between colour, design and emotion. What a spectacular idea!
Pentagon Amigurumi Pattern:
Row 1: Ch4, close to form ring
Row 2: Ch1 to form first sc, 9 sc = 10 sc
Row 3: ch2, sc in same space (first corner), sc in next st, *sc, ch1, sc in next st to form second corner; sc in next st* repeat 4 times
Row 4: ch2, sc in same space (first corner), sc in next 2 st, *sc, ch1, sc in next st to form second corner; sc in next 2 st* repeat 4 times
Row 5: ch2, sc in same space (first corner), sc in next 3 st, *sc, ch1, sc in next st to form second corner; sc in next 3 st* repeat 4 times
Repeat until desired size, in this case 12 rounds with a 5 mm hook in Raeesah Cotton Yarn
12 Pentagons assembled as per above images result in a round ball.
In order to achieve a star, place the two halves to fit exactly on one another, point to point, side to side.
