Hi Guys 😊 I hope you are enjoying your back holiday weekend. If you have been on the ‘gram lately you might have seen a few posts going around about littleyarnbunny. Unfortunately she has become seriously unwell whilst attempting to make another blanket for charity. I was originally going to post a different square this week, but I have changed the square to align with littleyarnbunnys original squares. The plan is for the crochet community to make many granny squares to make blankets for charity in honor of littleyarnbunny.

If you wish to find out more about this please go and check out stitchedupcraft; we will be making white simple squares with a rainbow motif. I will be making one for our CAL, and several for this community blanket. I hope you guys will too ❤️

Now, let’s get crocheting!

 

CAL – Part 11

Granny Square – LYB Square

All crochet patterns and terms I use are in UK, but if you want them in US then check out this handy stitch converter.

Materials:

  • Aran yarn in white – I got Lion Brand antique white from amazon.
  • DK yarn in rainbow colours! It doesn’t use that much yarn so leftovers from previous projects should be fine! If not deramores do a good colour pack!
  • 4.5mm hook – square
  • 3mm hook – rainbow

Skills used/required:

  • Treble Crochet (tc)
  • Chaining
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Magic Ring

The pattern is exactly the same as our simple square from part, but instead of a ch1 on the corners, it’s a chain two.

You should now have all the pieces to make your square! Now all that’s left is to attach them =D To make the squares to donate to LittleYarnBunnies blanket, they need to have 6 rows ( not 5 like the ones for our CAL). The crochet chart below accounts for this, so if you use the chart for the CAL ignore the last row =)

They’re so pretty! As you can see in the last picture I still have a few more squares to make, but I plan on making at least 5 for the charity blanket. I do hope you guys will make one for the blanket too, I’ll post pictures of the finished blankets after they’re stitches together and donated, so check back here in a few weeks to see all of our work side by side! ❤
