CROCHET PINWHEEL

© Kemberlee, 2007

Note: This pattern can be used with any yarn and appropriate size hook

Look carefully at the directions and you will see a pattern developing…increase one chain stitch every 10 rows, and increase one dc every section on every row. All repeats are done 6 times to build your 6 pinwheel sections.

You can continue this method as long as you wish. Eventually the pinwheel pattern will begin to circle the work to become a spiral


Directions:

Chain 4, slip stitch into first chain to form ring

Ch5, 1dc into ring, 6 times – 6 loops on the ring

Ch3, 1dc into first loop, 6 times

Note: Place a marker on the first 3ch open space and start counting rows from here. This pattern is worked in a spiral. When you come to the last row be sure all space sections have the same number of chain rows.

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 1 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 2 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 3 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 4 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 5 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 6 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 7 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 8 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 9 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch3, 2dc into first space, 10 dc into first stitch, 6 times

- increase row

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 12 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 13 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 14 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 15 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 16 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 17 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 18 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 19 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch4, 2dc into first space, 20 dc into first stitch, 6 times

- increase row

Ch5, 2dc into first space, 21 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch5, 2dc into first space, 22 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Ch5, 2dc into first space, 23 dc into first stitch, 6 times

Note: You can continue this method as long as you wish. Eventually the pinwheel pattern will begin circling the work to become a spiral. When you come to the last row be sure all space sections have the same number of chain rows.

If this is to be part of a larger item, make one or two circles around the pinwheel in dc to strengthen the pinwheel before continuing your item.
