I felt like switching things up a bit this week! We’ve been doing a lot of traditional granny squares, where you start in the middle and work out, but today I thought we would do more of stitch sampler square. It was quite tricky to get this stitch in a small square, but I think I managed it fairly well! I love the colour combination too, I think I’m going to experiment some more with it this week, so keep an eye on this space for more squares!

Let’s get crocheting!

CAL – Part 15

Granny Square – Catherine Wheel Sampler 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:

  • DK yarn in blue, orange and yellow – I’m still using Stylecraft DK yarn that I got in my order from Deramores =D
  • 3mm hook

Skills used/required:

  • Treble Crochet (tc) and Treble Crochet Tog (tc-tog)
  • Chaining
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • 7 Treble Cluster (7tr-cl) and 4 Treble Cluster (4tr-cl)
  • double crochet (dc)
  • Optional : Half treble crochet ( for border)

Row 0: ch 27.

Row 1: dc in 2nd chain from hook, dc in next ch, * skip 3ch, 7tr-cl in next ch, skip 3ch, dc in next 3ch*. Repeat from * once more. Skip next 3ch, 4tr-cl in last ch. Fasten off (26 stitches total)

Row 2: Turn to wrong side facing. Attach new colour. Dc in next two stitches, * ch 3, 7 tc tog, sl st into last tc, then sl st into second tc from 7tr-cl, dc in next 3 stitches *. Repeat from * once more. ch 3, 4 tc tog. (26 stitches total)

Row 3: Turn to right side facing. Ch 3, 3 tc in same space, * 3 dc in next 3 stitches, 7tr-cl *. Repeat from * once more. Finish off with dc in final 2 stitches. Fasten off. (26 stitches total)

Row 4: Turn to wrong side facing. Attach new colour. Ch 3, 3 tr tog, * dc in next 3 stitches, ch 3, 7 tc tog, sl st into last tc, then sl st into second tc from 7tr-cl *. Repeat from * once more. Dc in last 2 stitches (26 stitches total)

Row 5: Turn to right side facing. dc in next 2 spaces, * 7tr-cl, dc in next 3 stitches *. Repeat from * once more. Finish off with 4tr-cl. Fasten off. (26 stitches total)

Now just repeat rows 2-5 until you have the desired height. I repeated rows 2-5 and then 2-3.

The border I did was just a simple half treble crochet, just to add a nice crisp edge to it, but you don’t have to have it if you don’t want too =) I have also attached a crochet diagram for those who like to work from them =)

I hope you guys love this square as much as I do! ❤
