I say Ancient in the title, but I'm not sure how old it is. I also don't know where it came from, maybe its online somewhere. If you recognize it, please tell me. I found the original at a thrift shop, and decided to post the pattern to it. The picture is my recreation of it.
Center Ring= 3-6-6-6-6-6-3 CR. cut.
Row 2= R 10-10 CR, C 5-5-5-5-5-5. Repeat until you have 6 rings
Row 3= (a little tricky, bear with me)
*R 5-5-5-5-5-5 RW C 5-5-5-5-5-5 RW R 5-5+(Join to 4th picot of last
C 5-5-5-5-5-5 RW R 5-5+5-5-5-5 RW
C 5-5-5+ (join to middle picot on chain of Row Two)5-5-5 RW
R 5-5+5-5-5-5 RW C5-5-5-5-5-5 RW R 5-5-5-5-5-5 RW C 5-5-5-5-5-5 RW
R 5-5+5-5+5-5 (we're joining as if this will be a complete ring, but the
outer row is actually continuous)Don't Reverse Work
C 5-5-5-5-5-5 **RW R 5-5+(join to middle picot of the chain before the last
C 5-5-5-5-5-5 RW R 5+5-5-5-5-5 RW C 5-5-5-5-5-5 RW R 5+5-5-5-5-5
C 5-5-5-5-5-5*** repeat from * to *** so you've done it a total of six
(The First chain you do is joined to the last ring, so it's basically the
same thing as **, but reversed)
If you have any questions, feel free to ask! (:
