Lace Doodle Thursday: Fly Me To The Moon 8-pt




This is the first of many "re-works" of the original Fly Me To the Moon pattern! I thought an unusual flake shape might make the finished work a bit more interesting.



I must admit, though, that the little "moons" look a bit like albino bananas.

ch 6, form ring or use magic circle

Rd 1; ch 3, 15 dc in ring. Join with sl st to third ch of beginning ch 3. 16 dc.

Rd 2: ch 1, sc in same st. *ch 4, skip next dc, sc in next dc. Repeat from * around; (ch 2, dc in last sc) to form last ch 4 sp. 8 ch 4 spaces.

Rd 3: ch 3, hdc, sc in same sp.(*) sl st in next sc. sc in next ch 4 sp, ch 6, sl st in second ch from hook and in next ch. sc in next ch. (ch 3, sl st in second ch from hook and in next ch, sl st in sc) four times. sl st in next two chains, sc in same sp (^). sl st in next sc, in next ch 4 sp work sc, hdc, dc, ch 1, dc, hdc, sc.(@) repeat from * to @ twice, then from * to ^ once. In last sp work sc, hdc, dc. sc in third ch of beginning ch 3 to form last ch 1 sp.

Rd 4: Ch 1, sc in same sp. Ch 13, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, ch 12. sc in next ch 1 sp; ch 8 sl st in next 2 ch from hook, sc in next 2 ch. ch 5, sl st in next 2 chs from hook, sc in next 2 ch. Sc in the middle of next sc, sl st in next 3 ch. ch 1, sc in same ch 1 sp. Repeat from * around, omitting the last sc when you finish the last "moon". Join with sl st to first sc.

Block using 8-pt pattern. The little "stars" require one pin in each point.

Use whichever stiffening method you like, Readers!

*Note: Crocheters, you may do whatever you like with the snowflakes you make from this pattern. However, please don't change or sell the pattern (but feel free to share it all you like!)
