Although this colour scheme is new, I make these little pots a lot. They are also good as little vases made by covering jam jars. This one has a plant pot in it, so I've wrapped it in a poly bag to keep the water in.
The "pattern" is the following:
All in DC (UK), SC (US), each round is joined up with a slip stitch to the first stitch of the round. Make a flat circle like this:
Magic loop to start (or chain 4 if you prefer and slip stitch together into a little loop).
Round1: 6 DC
Round2: 2 DC into each stitch from the previous round (so you have 12 stitches).
Round3: repeat: 2 DC, DC, all the way round (18 stitches)
You are trying to get the size of the base. If you need to make it bigger:
Round4: repeat 2 DC, DC, DC all the way round
Round5: repeat 2 DC, DC, DC,DC all the way round
(you see the pattern here - add another DC each round)
Then when it is big enough, start making each round just DC all the way round, joining with a slip stitch at the end of the round.
To make the "Cornishware" alternate colours every 3 rows.
Now I just need to figure out how to make the "Domino" Cornishware pattern - a little more difficult I think, lol.
