In the first week of the Free Pattern Month I showed you the pattern for the humidifier cozy ‘circles of joy’. Well, this is another pattern for a cozy, only this time it’s with flowers instead of circles 🙂
What you need
– 3 mm crochet hook
– sock yarn
– darning needle
– thread clippers
one flower measures 4 cm (1 3/5 inch) in diameter. The cozy itself measures 20 cm (8 inch) wide around and 18 cm (7 1/10 inch) high.
For this pattern you need to know the following (US terms)
How to chain (CH)
How to make a Slip Stitch (Sl St)
How to make a Single Crochet (SC)
How to make a Double Crochet (DC)
How to make a Magic Loop (if you don’t know how to make a magic loop, you can do a *chain 2, begin in second chain from hook*)
First flower (flower pattern) :
Begin with magic loop; CH 3 (counts as first DC), DC 11 in magic loop. Close circle with a Sl St in the top of the CH 3.
second round: CH 3, 4 DC in the same stitch ( this is the first petal)
slip stitch in first stitch, *slip stitch in next stitch, CH 3, 4 DC, slip stitch in next stitch*
repeat from * until you have six petals. You end with a single Sl St in the last stitch. Cut off yarn and weave in ends.
(the ch 3, 4 DC is your petal. The ch 3 counts as one DC)
Now you need to join your first two flowers together:
Work the flower pattern up to the last petal. For the last petal: CH 3, DC 2 in same stitch. Insert your hook into the middle stitch from a petal from the other flower. Make a SC to join the two flowers together. Finish the flower pattern.
Repeat until you have a vertical row of 4 flowers. Join these flowers in the middle petals of the previous flower.
Join the first flower on the side:
Work 4 petals of the flower.
Next petal: CH 3, DC 2, SC in the middle stitch of the first side petal of other flower, finish petal. (See picture)
The crochet hook points at where you need to join the flowers
Last petal: CH 3, DC 2, SC in the middle stitch of the first side petal of other flower, finish flower. (See picture)
Joining the second flower to the top- and side flower:
First petal: CH 3, DC 2, SC in the middle stitch of the bottom petal of the above flower, finish petal. Work next two petals as step 3. Finish the flower. (see picture)
Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have a rectangle of 4 flowers high and 5 flowers wide.
Joining the sides together:
Fold the piece in half lengthwise with the right sides together.
Beginning with slip knot on hook; *SC in second and third stitch from petal, CH 2, SC in second and third stitch from petal, CH 6* repeat to end, ending with a SC 2.
Weave in the ends and admire your new humidifier cozy 🙂
