** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

~ large ruffley squircle ~

Materials:

- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic:
   = background color
   = ruffle color
- I hook

Size:  approximately 6"

Notes:

- ch 2 at beginning of Rnds 1 - 3 do not count as a stitch.
- I crochet tight so you may want to adjust the size of your hook.

Directions:

Rnd 1:  With background color ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook.  Join with a sl st to back loop of 1st dc.  (12 dc)

==work next 3 rounds in back loops==

Rnd 2:  Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around.  Join as before.

Rnd 3:  Ch 2, 2 dc in same st, dc in next dc.  *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc.  Repeat from * around.  Join as before.

Rnd 4:  (Ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in same st, ch 1, {skip next 2 dc, 3 hdc in next dc, ch 1} 2 times.  Skip next 2 dc.  *(3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next dc, ch 1, {skip next 2 dc, 3 hdc in next dc, ch 1} 2 times.  Skip next 2 dc.  Repeat from * 2 more times.  Join with a sl st to top of ch 3.

Rnd 5:  Ch 3, dc in each dc and ch 1 space around with (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in each corner space.  Join as before.

Rnd 6:  Ch 1, sc in each dc around with (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner space.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  End off.

==for ruffles:

Rnds 1 - 3:  Join ruffle color with a sc to any front loop, ch 2.  *sc in next front loop, ch 2.  Repeat from * around.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  End off.

==if you want a plain large squircle, just work all rounds in both loops and leave off the ruffles.
