Wispweave Octagon


Here is the pattern for the next Wispweave shape, an octagon!  The pattern has 12 rounds and the finished size measures about 5 1/2" from the points.  Here are links to the other Wispweave patterns available-  Wispweave squaretriangle, hexagon, and doily.
    
  This one was a bit trickier than the others to create.  At first I tried starting out with 16 dc so there would be 2 picots per side, but there had to be a larger circle in the middle to fit that many dc stitches and it didn't really look like the other shapes.  On the second try I started out with 8 dc which turned out to be not enough stitches and the design looked stretched out.  Third attempt I started with 12 dc and decreased to make 8 picots (1 per side) which I liked but wasn't exactly the right shape (I may use that one for something else though :D).  Next I tried starting out with 12 dc again but this time increasing on Round 6 instead of decreasing to make 16 picots which worked!  Although this was a lot of frogging and trying out different stitch combinations, it's one of my favorite parts to see what works and what doesn't.  And also it's exciting when something finally does!  

The thread I used for the examples pictured is Scheepjes Maxi Sugar Rush in the colors Spring Green, Old Lace, and English Tea for the border.  I hope that you enjoy making this and happy crocheting!!

Blocking and Finishing

It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the motif to be lightly stiffened. Soak and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the motif working from the center out to the edges. Allow to dry completely before removing the pins.

It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the square to be lightly stiffened. Soak and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the square working from the center out to the edges. Allow to dry completely before removing the pins.
