Keeping up with the veggies… it’s time for the green onion. I’ve found there are many types and many names for this kind of onions, but I hope green onion is understandable for everyone. Anyway, it’s a vegetable that looks like this:
The pattern is worked in the round and is very easy, like all my patterns. I guess you can figure out how it goes increasing and decreasing as usual, but if anyone needs some directions, my onion went something like that:
With light brown:
Chain 2. Insert hook in second stitch from the hook and work 6 sc in the same stitch (or magic ring and work 6 sc). Join with the first stitch in the row with a slip stitch.
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc from the previous row (12)
Change to white:
Row 3: 1 sc in first sc from the previous row, 2 in the next (18)
Row 4: 1 sc in the first, 1 sc in the second, 2 in the next(24)
Row 5: 1 sc in the first, 1 sc in the second, 1 sc in the third, 2 sc in the next (30)
Row 6: 1 sc in each of the first 4 stitches, then 2 sc in the next (36)
Rows 7 to 10: 1 sc in each.
Row 11: 1 sc in each of the first 4 stitches, then 2 together (30)
Row 12: 1 sc in the first, 1 sc in the second, 1 sc in the third, then 2tog (24)
Row 13: 1 sc in the first, 1 sc in the second, 2 tog (18)
Row 14: 1sc, 2 tog (12)
Row 15: repeat row 14 (8)
Row 16 and 17: 1 sc in each stitch around (8)
Change to green:
Rows 18 to 21: 1 sc in each stitch around (8)
For the leaves, we’ll work 4 sections of 2 stitches each: sc, sc, chain 1 to turn (and repeat this for 5 rows, or the length you want, in each section).
As a final touch, you can create the little roots in the base of the onion by tying some strands of yarn with a knot.
