    chain stitch (ch), triple crochet stitch (tc), double crochet (dc), half double crochet (hdc), single crochet (sc), slip stitch (sl)   Pattern – This is a granny stitch method where most crochet stitches are stitched through the hole, not the loop. You can switch colors for each round to create the each of the three suns pictured.  


    1. Chain stitch 4.
    2. Slip stitch back through the first chain stitch to create a circle.
    3. Chain stitch 3. This will act as your first double crochet in this round.
    4. Double crochet 11 more stitches in the center of the circle you made in step 2. 12 total.
    5. Slip stitch through the top of the first chain of 3 to form the first circle round.
    6. Continue with your yellow yarn and chain stitch 3 again. This will act as your first double crochet (dc) in this round.
    7. Double crochet into the same stitch just to the left of where you chained, so there are now 2 in the same space.
    8. Continue to double crochet 2 stitches into each of the remaining holes from the previous round. 24 total.
    9. Slip stitch through the top of the first chain of 3 to form the second circle round.
    10. Chain stitch 2. This will act as your first half double crochet (hdc). Stitch one more hdc into that same space as your chain of 2.
    11. Continue to hdc 2 stitches through each space, for a total of 48 (including your first 2 from #10)
    12. Slip stitch through the top of the first chain of 2 to form the third circle round.
    13. Chain stitch 5.
    14. Going back down the chain of 5, skip the first stitch, single crochet (sc) 1 stitch, half double crochet (hdc) 1 stitch, double crochet (dc) 1 stitch, triple crochet (tc) 1 stitch. This will create your triangle.
    15. Once you have your triangle, count 5 of the half double crochet (hdc) stitches and single crochet (sc) after the 5th hdc. This will attach your triangle to the round.
    16. Single crochet 1 more stitch into the next hole.
    17. Chain stitch 4 stitches from that last single crochet stitch. NOTE: For the second triangle (and all those after) chain stitch only 4. The sc from the previous counts as 1 stitch.
    18. Repeat step 14. 15. 16. 17. for each of the triangles. You’ll have a total of 8 triangles for this pattern.See the orange sun for a closer look at the triangles and the 2 sc stitches between each triangle.
    19. End your last sc crochet stitch on the last hole before joining the circle of triangles with a slip stitch. Tie off the slip stitch and cut your yarn.
    20. Use your yarn needle to thread and hide all the tails.
      Now it’s time for some summer backyard fun! Add a drink and a straw, your party is complete! SCENE_3_look2_089
