I don't understand how to do the Embossed roundel. Do you use different piece of yarn when closing roundel? Please explain this to me if you would.

Thanks,

Pat

remove hook from working loop, insert hook from back through top of first dc of Roundel and, keeping sts of Roundel a back of crochet piece, pick up working loop again and draw through to close Roundel. Don't understand this

Hello Pat,
This pattern is designed by Michele Wilcox. I will try to contact her for an explanation and get back to you!

Hello Pat,
From Michele: You do not use a different piece of yarn to close the Roundel.
When stitch is complete, take your hook out of the loop on the hook; then from the back, put the first stitch of pattern stitch on the hook and then pull the last loop (the loops you removed from the hook) through to form the rest of the stitch.
We hope this helps you!
