Well, they remind me of the Art Deco period. I can’t remember where I got this pattern from. The pattern is for one square and in U.S. terms. Make 4 of them and sew them together.
Round 1: ch 16 and form a ring with a slip stitch
Round 2: Sc 24 in ring. Join in 1st Sc with a slip stitch
Round 3: Ch 3 (this is the 1st Dc). 5 Dc in the next 5 Sc, Ch 4. * 6Dc in the next 6 Sc. Repeat from * until you have 4 corners and join to the 1st Dc with a slip stitch.
Round 4: Ch 1. Sc in same stitch and in next 5 stitches. 4 Sc in the chain 4 opening. *Sc in next 6 stitches. 4 Sc in the chain opening. Repeat from * to end and slip stitch in 1st stitch
Round 5: Chain 3 (Again, this is the 1st Dc). Dc in next 5 stitches. Ch 10. Skip 4 Sc you made over the Chain 4 loop and *Dc in next 6 stitches. Ch 10. Skip 4 Sc. Repeat from * to end. Join with slip stitch.
Round 6: Ch 1. Sc in same stitch and in next 5 stitches. Sc 10 stitches in Ch 10 loop. * Sc in next 6 stitches. Sc 10 stitches in Chain 10 loop. Repeat from * to end and close with a slip stitch. Fasten off and weave in ends.
After sewing the 4 blocks together, pin to a folded towel and use a steam iron to block. Do not touch the iron to the coaster, just give it as many blasts of steam as you want. Let dry in place and remove pins. If you put the iron on the stitches it tends to flatten them too much.
There are endless possibilities with this pattern – scarves, tablecloths, afghans (with thicker yarn).
Hope you have fun with this!
