Wagon Wheel Puff Motif Pattern

by Megan Mills
megan@kiwi.gen.nz




A woman inherited an afghan from her Mother and the dog damaged it. She did not have the pattern to do repairs and put up a picture on the internet asking for help. This is my attempt to reproduce the design as best I can without seeing the article in real life. The picture here was done by putting the motif in my scanner so the central circle does not look as puffy as it will for you.

Worked with a 4mm hook in Double Knitting yarn the motif measures 10cm across. This is written in US terminology because the woman who asked for help is based in the USA. For those of you used to British terminology these are the differences relevant for this pattern:

US sc = British dc
US dc = British tr
US hdc = British htr
US tr = British dtr

Special Instruction for a Long Puff (LP): It will be easier to pull up to height if after the first YOH you hold that strand against the hook while you insert your hook to do the second YOH and pull up.

LP: *YOH, insert hook into 1-ch space, YOH and draw up a loop as tall as the puff needs to be to match the height of 4 ch, repeat once from * into the same space, YOH and draw through all loops on hook, 1ch.

The first LP of Round 2 will have 4 ch substituting for the first half of the puff.


Motif

To begin: 6ch, join with ss to form a circle.

Round 1: Using 3 ch to stand in for the 1st dc work 12 dc's sep by 1ch and close the round with a ss.

Round 2: Into each 1-ch space around the circle work 2 LPs and close the round with a ss. There are 24 LPs separated by 1 ch.
