The design:
The first Brassica Bloom I made was a gorgeous mustard one. It’s working name was ‘the mustard thing’ so keeping with the theme I named it after the plant family the mustard plant belongs to- Brassica
Brassica Bloom can be used as a table decoration, a wall hanging or a blanket. Brassica is an intermediate level pattern that repeats with a little counting

Brassica Bloom uses Pi Formula to increase. It will curl up quite a lot before the increase round. This is normal, but a little freaky. I promise it will uncurl like magic after the increase. Maths is magic, who knew ;)

The first section has 3 sets of fan rounds, the second section has 6 sets of fan rounds, the 3rd section has 12 sets of fan rows and so on and so forth until desired size

Materials needed:
Brassica Bloom was designed using 4ply/Fingering/weight 2 yarn. Meterage used was 900 m for the wall hanging and 2700m for the blanket. I used a 3 mm hook for the wall hanging and a 4mm for the blanket. Wall hanging measures 68cm blanket measures 130cm.
Can be made in any weight yarn. Meterage will vary based on yarn used, hook size and crochet style.
Stitch markers.
Wool/darning needle.
Gauge: rounds 1-5 = 10.5cm
