Renaissance Button Wrap
By Jennifer Dickerson
Click the button below to add this to your Ravelry queue:
- 3 skeins Lion Brand Lion's Pride Woolspun (colors shown: "Honey" "Rust" and "Fisherman")
- K (6.5 mm) crochet hook
- 1 button
- Tapestry Needle
- 30 inches across from point to point
Note: Each round is worked in a different color. However, feel free to create any color sequence you like.
Ch 6, join in ch furthest from hook with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 8, then into the center of the ring, work (5 dc, ch 5) two times. Then work 4 dc into the center of the ring. To close the round, work a sl st into the third ch of the ch-8 from the beginning of the round.
(tie on a new color into one of the corner spaces)
Round 2: Ch 8, then work 2 dc in the corner space. Work a dc in each stitch along the side of the triangle (dc stitches worked along the sides of the triangle). When you reach the next corner space, work 2 dc, ch 5, 2 dc. Work a dc in each stitch along the next triangle side (dc stitches worked along the sides of the triangle). Work the next corner the same way as before, 2 dc, ch 5, 2 dc, then work the final side by working a dc in each stitch across. To complete round, work a dc in the corner space where round was started, then, work a sl st into the third ch of the ch-8 from the beginning of the round.
Repeat round 2 until triangle measures 30 inches from point to point (or desired length). I worked 14 rounds, however based on yarn choice, tension, etc, you may work more or less rounds.
Note: Sides are worked into the stitches and corners are worked into the spaces of the triangle. Your triangle will grow because 4 stitches are added to each side of every round.
Finishing & Assembly:
Weave in all ends that remain. With a matching piece of yarn, sew button to one of the triangle points with a tapestry needle.
