I've called this one a flurry, as it is a flurry of mixed colours
A bit of a colour medley here, which is done in a fpdc and a bpdc, with a tassle for fun
This is my caramel surprise, after I had made the V st set above, I wanted to make another in 2 colours, but the increase of the V st made it difficult to keep the colours aligned, so I alternated coloured rows as the pattern increased, it is a colour and style that actually suited me

Choose some yarn to work with.
Make 2 ends of sc inc, in the round, until you get the size you need for the ends of the bottle, then sc attatch ends to bottle.
Now I bought 3 polystyrene heads from spotlight yesterday for $13.50 each on special, originally $18.00.
Yes I know it's a bit pricey, how ever I needed display's for my stock, so the initial price may bring me some more sales when I go to the market.
I missed out on a stall for this Sunday, but I am making a phone call first thing in the morning for next Sunday, hope fully I'll get in as they were fully booked when I rang last time.
But I do believe I now have better display items for my stock to present well.
Just a funny picture of my daughter who falls down the stairs every other day.

DC = Yarn over hook, insert hook into st, pull up a loop, yarn over hook, pull through 2 st’s, yarn over hook and pull through 2 st’s again.
Sc= Insert hook into st, pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through both loops on hook.
Ch 4, sl st to first chain to form a ring
Ch 3, 10 dc into ring, sl st into first dc to join (not ch 3)
Ch 1, 1 sc in same place as join, ch 2, 1 sc in next dc, *ch 2, 1 sc in next dc*, repeat to end, ch 2 and sl st into first sc of this round
Ch 3, *1 bullion st into ch 2 space, 1 bullion st into sc st*, repeat to final ch 2 space, sl st to top of ch3
Ch 3, work 2 dc in space between ch 3 and 1 bullion st, work 2 dc in next space between the bullion st’s, work 2 dc in next 3 spaces between bullion st’s, ( 1 x ch 3 and 10 x dc in total) ch 3 and turn
Pattern RowsWork 1 dc in very first dc, work 1 dc in each dc across, do not dc in end ch 3 of previous row, ch 1 and turn (10 dc and ch 3 turning ch)
Row 1 of pattern. Working the back loops only, work 1 sc in each dc across (ignore ch 3 turning ch), (=10 sc) ch 3 and turn
Row 2 of pattern. Work 1 dc in very first dc, work 1 dc in each sc across, ch 1 and turn (10 dc and ch 3 turning ch)
Repeat row 1 and row 2, 12 more times, (24 more rows of pattern) ending with a dc row, then sl st across 10 dc and fasten off
Button PlacementPlace buttons beneath circular bullion to hide from view. The buttons will do up nicely in a dc.
To make a scarf
Using this pattern to make a scarf can be done easily by making 2 of the above, omitting the sl st ending and ending one side with a sc row, then join together. Make them as long as you need.
