Pentagon Motif Pattern 022613 (two-color)


Today’s pentagon motif pattern is a variation from yesterday’s post. It is smaller, as there are fewer rounds. It’s my own design. Feel free to link to it, but please respect all rules of copyright. Again, I’m curious as to how you might use this new motif. Thank you for sharing your ideas in the comments.
Using Color A
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
Finish off. Join Color B to any chain 2 space.
Step 4:  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]
Finish off. Join Color A to 2nd double crochet in any group of 3 double crochet stitches.
Step 6:  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]
Finish off. Weave in loose ends.
