Motif crochet - Circles #1

I'm going to make a collection about best crochet motifs. Most of them my own creations.

Fill free to join my blog to keep update with those motifs and with the finished products.

Join and inspiration!

This is a classic, simply but very beautiful motif.


The Pattern...

Note:
Increase the number of st for each lp to enlarge the row. 
If you crochet it with a bulky yarn, like I did, you may wish to begin with less then 24 dc, but it must be multiply by 2.
Also, when you start the row with ch-3 lp, you could crochet continue, without joining at the end of each row (in this case you should use a marker for the end of the row. Join only at the end of piece.

The foundation:
In a ring, ch 3 (count like dc) and 11 dc. Sl st in 3rd ch from ch-3.
R1: 1 ch, sc in the same st as joining, *ch 3, sc in next dc; repeat from * around and finished with ch 1 and sc in the same st as joining.
R2: 3 ch, sc in first ch-3 lp, *3 ch, sc in next ch-3 lp; repeat from * around and finished with 1 ch and 1 dc in first sc.
R3: sc in first ch-3 lp, 4 ch, sc in the same first ch-3 lp, *4 ch, sc in next ch-3 lp; repeat from * around and finished with 1 ch and 1 dc in first sc.
R4: 5 ch, sc in first ch-4 lp, *5 ch, sc in next ch-4 lp; repeat from * around and finished with 2 ch and 1 dc in last dc from previous row.
Continue to repeat R4 but increase with 1 ch at each ch-lp for each row. Crochet as many rounds as you need. I crochet this motif until I get ch-8 lp on last row.
Pay attention on the beginning and on the end of each row.
On last row, finished with the same ch number as you did on the other lps from the same row and join with sl st on last dc.

Have fun!
