Pine Cone Doily

PEOPLE ALL OVER PINTEREST HAVE BEEN BEGGING AND BEGGING FOR THE ENGLISH VERSION, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE IT A GO!!

Adapted from a Russian Chart


I HAVE NOT INCLUDED THE CHART, AS IT IS NOT CLEAR AND I DON'T KNOW WHO OWNS IT!!
U.S. Terms Used

2.25mm Crochet Hook & Clever Cotton (Aus.-4 Ply, US.-Fingering??). Finished Size approx. 24” or 60.96 cm
                                  OR
1.5mm -  1.75mm Crochet Hook & #10 Crochet Cotton. Finished size approx. 18” or 45.72cm
(I crochet loose)

PLEASE DO NOT COPY AND PASS THIS OFF AS YOUR OWN WORK!!  THIS HAS TAKEN ME MANY, MANY HOURS OF TYPING, CORRECTING, AND STARING AT A CHART!!

Stitches Used:
ch chain
sc single crochet 
dc double crochet
st or sts stitch or stitches
dc inc double crochet increase (crochet 2 dc in the same stitch)
sc inc single crochet increase (crochet 2 sc in the same stitch)
sc dec single crochet decrease (crochet the 2 sc together)
           sl st.    slip stitch
           picot   single crochet, chain 3, slip stitch in top of single crochet, single crochet
           join slip stitch to beginning stitch/chain
Notes: 
1. To start the dc rows, you can ch 3 OR do a chainless starting dc. INSTRUCTIONS FOUND HERE: https://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/.  

2.  IF WANTING TO USE ENGLISH/AUSTRALIAN TERMS, the ONLY changes are as follows:
U.S.
ENG.  OR AUS. 
sc
dc
dc
tr (treble)

3. When working on Rounds 18 and 26, the first stitch of the previous round’s 4 dc groupings may be hidden. Don’t forget this stitch.
4. Also, to stop your chains from twisting when making the first stitch after your last chain, gently pull the chain back with one of your fingers from the hand with the crochet hook. This will also stop the next stitch from being too loose & having too big a gap between the last chain and first stitch. 
NOW TO BEGIN!!
Round 1:  Ch 10, join with a slip stitch to first ch. 
Round 2:  Ch 3 (counts as the first dc). Dc 31 into the circle of chains. (With the ch 3 at start, this will make 32 dc).  Join with a slip stitch into the starting chain.  
Round 3:  Ch 5. This counts as the first dc ch2. Skip next dc of row 2. (Dc in the next dc, skip the next dc, ch 2). Repeat to the end of the round. Join.  
Round 4:  Chain 3, (dc 4 in next ch-2 space, dc in next dc, ch 2, skip next ch 2 sp). (Dc in next dc, dc 4 in the next ch-2 sp, dc in the next dc, ch-2, skip ch 2 sp). Repeat to end of round. Join.  
Round 5:   Dc inc in the join,  dc in the next 4 dc, dc inc in the next dc. Ch 2, skip the next ch-2 space. (Dc inc in next dc, dc in the next 4 dc, dc inc in the next dc, ch 2, skip the next ch-2 space.) Repeat to the end of the round. Join.

Round 8:  Dc inc in the join, dc in the next 10 dc, inc in the next dc. Ch 2, skip the next ch-2 space. (Inc in next dc, dc in the next 10 dc, inc in the next dc, ch 2, skip the ch-2 space.) Repeat to the end of the round. Join.
