About my last photo tutorial ….

…. well, I've tried the how to crochet a circle in a rectangle using more colours for one motif and the result is really eye catching…

…. and it seems to look at a different pattern, when comparing this new one with the original one …

So, tempted, I decided to crochet a couple more (!!!) using different colour combos ….

In this specific case, I've decided to change little things from the original version of the pattern, that is :

round 4 : each corner is characterised with chain 2 (no more chain 1)
round 5 : even in this round, every corner has a chain 2
round 6 : there are 13 SCs along the left side and othe 13 SCs along the right side
                only 1 DC in the second corner and only 1 DC in the fourth corner
round 7 : after the first 7 DCs of the top, crochet 1 DC in the top of the stitch, not in the corner
                in the second and the fourth corners, crochet just 1 DC (not 2)
                there are 13 DCs along the base and the first DC after these 13 is not in the corner, but in the
                top of the stitch

Then I crocheted the third one ….

For this yellow/grey version, I followed the "new" version of the pattern (as for the green one) and I decided to put an extra change : in fact, instead to work a chain 4 (just look here to understand where to make this slight variation), I decided to substitute it with a chain 3 !!!!
Another thing : this time I didn't use the chain 3 as the starting stitch at the beginning of all rounds, but I preferred to chain 1 and DC in the same stitch !

…. I think I've been quite exhaustive with this motif, but not exhausted !!!!!! ;oD
