Pink Anemone Oasis Pattern for the Maine Crochet Reef Project

Here is my  newest creation and one I was able to keep track of as I made it so I can pass it on to you.
I love this little piece! It stands a little over 8" tall and the base is about 6" across.

As with all of my pieces, I have mostly been using my mom's leftover yarn stash that has been building for years. This is sport weight acrylic baby yarn in pink. The turquoise is also acrylic in worsted weight and the trim is #10 cotton crochet thread.

The anemone's are done using a G hook and the base with a J hook.

Tall Skinny One
- Ch 30 & join to make a circle
- sc in ea st til it measures 1 1/2"
- Dec 3 evenly in the next rnd

- 2 sc in ea outside loop of hte next rnd
- 2 sc in ea sc until it is ruffled as much as you like ( I did 5 rows) and tie off

Mid Sized Fat One

-  Follow directions as for the tall skinny one until the piece measures 4 1/2"

The Island
I used worsted weight yarn and a J hook
-  ch 5 and join
-  14 dc in the center and join
-   ch 2, dc in the same space, *dc in the nxt sp, 2dc in the nxt sp* to the end of the rnd
-   Join and ch 2, *3dc in the nxt sp, 1dc in the nxt sp, 2dc in the nxt sp, 1dc in the next sp* repeat to the   
    end of the rnd, join, ch 2 
-   2dc in ea st around and join.
-  ch5, join to the nxt st all around and tie off

Stuff the anemone's lightly with fiber or polyfil and stitch them to the base with matching yarn.

That's it! Good luck.....
