This tablecloth is an adaptation of a pattern written by Frank O’Randle and sold on Ravelry under the name Rings of Change. He has a free pattern called Mini Rings of Change which is the first 42 rows of the main pattern. The full pattern is around 112 rows. The original pattern is for an afghan as well.
I am using crochet thread and a size 1.0mm crochet hook. I’m not sure if that’s a steel hook size or not since I was given a hook with a blue plastic handle with 1.0mm on it, and I’m using it. I’m also using what thread I have on hand that was given to me over the years. None of them have labels on them, and they’re of various sizes. This makes the tablecloth curl in places, but I’m okay with that. This project is for me.
The last time I posted, it looked like this:
I believe I’d finished the Mini Rings of Change at this point and had decided to buy the full pattern when I could. I bought the full pattern this past week, and now, it looks like this:
The tablecloth is now at row 50. The next 4 rows create the foundation for the Crocodile Stitch. This is one I have been avoiding trying since it was first developed many many years ago. I just didn’t see the point in doing that much work for something with limited use. I can’t avoid it now, not if I want to continue with the pattern. So, I’ll tough it out and go on knowing I at least tried it once.
Overall, this project has been a lot of fun, and I’m going to have something pretty and colorful to use when it’s done.
