Hello and good morning..
Today’s square is called Spring green therefore I decided to make it in a pale green!
It is a really simple one row repeat and once you get into the rhythm of it you are off!
- ch 25
- dc in 3rd ch from hook, *tr in next ch, dc in next ch,, rep from * to end
- 1ch, *dc in next tr, tr in next dc, rep from* across
- rep above row 22 times
- 1ch, 1dc in same, dc in each st and in each row end around, making corners with 3 dc in the same stitch.
Hello crochet square admirer,
Here is today’s square, Kata Square. I stumbled across this pattern while mooching around the internet and I think it looks gorgeous.
I only worked part of the pattern as it is a bigger square but I would like to go back another day and make the larger square in more than one colour.
Here are the instructions for the Kata Square, it is an American pattern so US terminology is used throughout.
I worked up to Round 5 then skipped to Round 6, worked rounds 6 and 7 then worked a round of UK dc to finish and bring up to size.
Hello, how’s things with yourself? Good I hope?
Here is today’s square, the Chain Granny square, a slight variation on the good old Granny square.
The instructions are here for the Chain Granny Square, another one of Dayna’s crochet patterns, US terminology is used, it is well written and easy to do. I worked as per pattern with no alterations at all (unusual I know!)
Today’s square, Blocks and Bows is quite a vintage pattern and you can find the instructions here.
Its a very easy pattern and looks good, all it requires is a multiple of 10sts. I followed as per pattern instructions and then finished off with a round of UK treble followed by a round of UK dc.
Go on, give it a go!
Today’s square has been named Charity Square because the motif has been taken and modified from an old pattern bought from a charity shop.
I have worked it in one colour but intend to try it in 2 or more colours to see how it changes the overall look of the square.
Instructions are in UK terminology throughout;
- 4ch and sl st to join into ring
- 1ch, 8dc into ring, sl st to 1st dc to join
- 3ch, 1tr in same place [ 3ch, 2tr in next dc ] 7 times, 3ch, sl st to top of 3ch
- sl st across next tr and into 3ch sp, 1ch, 1dc in same sp, [3ch (1dc 5ch 1dc) in next 3ch sp, 3ch, 1dc in next ch sp] 4 times, omitting last dc at end of last rep, sl st to 1st dc
- 1ch 1dc in same sp, [3dc in next 3ch sp, 1 dc in next dc (2dc 1ch 2dc) in next 5ch sp, 1dc in dc, 3dc in 3ch sp, 1 dc in next dc] 4 times omitting last dc at end of last repeat, sl st to join in 1st dc
- 3ch ( counts as 1tr), 1tr in each dc around with 1tr 3ch 1tr in each corner ch space, sl st to top of ch3
- 3ch (counts as 1tr), 1tr in each tr around and 2tr 3ch 2tr in corner ch sp, sl st to top of ch3
- 1ch, 1dc in same, 1dc in each tr around and 3dc in each corner ch sp, sl st to join.
I decided to do today’s square, Textured Bluebells using a blue yarn so the name matched the square (unlike day 110 – Sunshine Lace!)
It took me a while to work out the correct chain length for the pattern but it works out as multiples of 3 + 1 (add 1 for base chain) so I started with a chain of 23 and then worked as per pattern instructions found on pg 36 of 200 Crochet Blocks, before finishing off with 2 rounds of UK dc.
Very easy pattern and quite rhythmic once you got going, would be a good stitch for larger projects too.
Today’s square is a very simple and easy square to crochet.
Instructions can be found on pg 38 of 200 Crochet Blocks…
The simplicity of this square lends itself to many other uses, scarves, blankets etc. Just make sure that the starting chain is an even number so that the stitch count is an odd number, in this case 24ch, 23 dc.
Today’s square, Bobble Band is simple, easy and totally pleasurable to make.
The instructions for this square can be found on pg 50 of 200 Crochet Blocks…
I started with a chain of 25 then worked as per pattern instructions then finished with a round of UK dc.
Hello and good morning,
A simple easy square to do with a repeating pattern is today’s choice.
The instructions for this square can be found on pg 82 of 200 Crochet Blocks…
The pattern calls for a starting chain of 32 but I started with a chain of 26 then worked as per pattern instructions before finishing with a round of UK dc to neaten the edges and bring up to size.
Another square from the book, 200 Crochet Blocks, this time the instructions can be found on pg 83.
I assume the name of this square was for the colours used in the original but I worked it in one colour to help show the solid diamonds as well as the granny styling.
I worked up to including Round 6, skipped Round 7 and went straight to Round 8 to bring to size.
