Lipstick On Your Collar!
Red Heart Super Saver's newest printed yarn color is a luscious Lipstick red! The variances of red mono chromatics in the yarn makes this one of the richest hues I've seen in a long time. I also enjoyed the vintage-y feel the yarn gives off when worked up into a project. I'm sure your creativity will take over once you see this dramatic yarn for yourself. Get it while you can.
The pattern for the flower pictured is a variation of the rose in the Yarn Rose Doily. I used a small hook for the center and a larger hook for the petals to give them fullness and depth.
Hooks: F and K
Rnd 1: With F hook, ch 5, sl st in first ch to form a ring, ch 5 (counts as first dc and ch 2), dc in ring, * ch 2, dc in ring, repeat from * 3 times more, ch 2, sl st in third st of ch 5 first made. Switch to K hook (6 spaces)
Rnd 2: sl st in next loop, ch 1, (sc, 6 dc, sc) in same lp, * (sc, 6 dc, sc) in next loop, repeat from * 4 more times, join. Fasten off.
