Pentagon Motif Pattern 022513


by M. J. Joachim
In the interest of providing a variety of crochet shape motifs on Lots of Crochet Stitches, I created an easy pentagon for you today. It’s my own design. Feel free to link to it, but please respect all rules of copyright.
I’m sure there are lots of things you can make with this motif pattern. I have to ask though, how would you use this new motif and what would you make with it? Please share your answers in the comments. Thank you!
Step 1:  Chain 4; join with slip stitch to 1st chain to form a ring
Step 2:  Chain 5 (counts as 1st double crochet + chain 2); double crochet in center of ring
Step 3:  {Double crochet + chain 2 + double crochet} in center of ring (4 times); join with slip stitch to 3rd chain of first chain 5


Step 4:  Slip stitch into chain 2 space; chain 3 (counts as 1st dc); make 2 more double crochet in same place
Step 5:  Chain 3, make 3 dc in next chain 2 space
[Repeat Step 5 around, ending with chain 3 and joining with slip stitch to top chain of 1st dc]


Step 6:  Slip stitch into next double crochet; chain 3 (counts as 1st dc); {double crochet + chain 1 + 2 dc} in same stitch
Step 7:  Make 3 single crochet in next chain 3 space; make {2 dc + chain 1 + 2 dc} in 2nd dc from hook (center dc of next group of 3 dcs)
[Repeat Step 7 around, ending with 3 sc in last chain 3 space and joining with slip stitch to top chain of 1st dc]


Step 8:  Slip stitch in next dc and into next chain 1 space; chain 3 (counts as 1st dc); make 2 dc + chain 2 + 3 dc in same place
Step 9:  Double crochet in each of next 3 single crochet stitches; make {3 dc + chain 2 + 3 dc} in next chain 1 space
[Repeat Step 9 around, ending with 1 double crochet stitch in each of last 3 single crochets, and joining with slip stitch to top chain of 1st dc]
I truly hope you enjoy making this new 5-sided motif.
Thank you for visiting Lots of Crochet Stitches.
