Picture Mat

This is a picture mat that I added some crocheted flowers and leaves to. I used size 10 crochet cotton, and a size 6 steel crochet hook. The flowers and leaves are attached to the mat with a SMALL amount of glue. For the large rose and leaf pattern, see my rose and leaf magnet (November's Archive)- directions are given there.

For the small flower, ch 4, 3 tr in 4th ch from hook,** ch 3, 3 tr in same ch as last tr** three times, join w/sl st. break thread, weave in ends.

For the small leaves, ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next 3 ch, hdc in next ch, 3sc in next ch, then working on other side of ch, hdc in next ch, dc in next 3 ch, hdc in next ch, sc in last ch, join w/sl st. ch 10, sl st in 5th ch from hook, ch 5, leave small tail, break thread.

You are so creative. I love that when I click on the picture I can see your stitches up close. Your stitches are so tight and perfect. I love your work again like always.

This is gorgeous! I would have never thought to do something like this, but I have to say it really adds a beautiful flair to the frame.
