Happy Sunday all! This weeks square is a little different, as it requires a little bit more effort than some of the others, but I promise you that it is 100% worth it! We will make 4 smaller squares and join them together using an invisible stitch.

I hope you guys like it!

CAL – Part 16

Granny Square – Petal 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 dark and light blue, orange and yellow – I’m still using Stylecraft DK yarn that I got in my order from Deramores =D
  • 3mm hook
  • Embroidery or Darning needle

Skills used/required:

  • Treble Crochet (tc)
  • Double Treble Crochet (dtr)
  • Half Treble Crochet (htc)
  • Chaining
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Triple Treble Crochet (ttc)
  • double crochet (dc)

To make this square you will need to make 4 of these squares and join them together.

Row 0: In a magic ring, ch 2, then 12 tc into the ring.

Row 1: Ch2, (htc, dc) in the next stitch, 2 dc in the next stitch, dc, 2 dc in the next stitch, dc, 2 dc in the next stitch, htc, 2 htc in the next stitch, 2 tc in the next stitch, (2 dtc, ch 1, 2 dtc) in the next stitch, 2 tc in the next stitch, 2 htc in the next stitch. Sl st into 2ch in ch 2. Fasten off (24 stitches total)

Row 2: ch1, 2dc in the next stitch, dc, dc, 2dc in the next stitch, dc, dc, 2dc in the next stitch, dc, dc, 2dc in the next stitch, dc, 2dc in the next stitch, htc, 2 htc in next stitch, tc, tc, 2 tc in the next stitch, (2 dtc, ch 1, 2 dtc) in the next stitch, 2 tc in the next stitch, tc, tc, 2htc in the next stitch, htc, dc. Sl st into ch. Fasten off (37 stitches total)

Row 3: ch 2, htc, dc in the next 5 stitches, htc, tc, (2tc, ch2, tc, htc) in the next stitch, dc, dc, sl st, dc, dc, htc, tc, tc, (2 dtc, ch 2, 2 dtc) in the next stitch, dtc, tc, tc, htc, dc in the next 4 stitches, (2htc, ch2, 2htc) in the next stitch, dc in the next 4 stitches, htc, htc, tc, dtc, dtc, (ttc, ch2, dtc, tc) in the next stitch. Finish off with sl st into 2ch in ch 2. Fasten off ( 48 stitches total)

I have also attached a crochet diagram to make the smaller square to this post. Just repeat X4 to make the larger square.

Repeat the above 4 times to make 4 separate squares.

To join them, we will be using the invisible stitch. Get your white yarn and you needle, and thread the yarn through. Get 2 squares, and face them right side together (so wrong sides are facing out towards you). We will be working in the outer loops. Thread the needle through the top squares furthest right outer loop, and then through the bottom squares furthest right outer loop.

Continue to work this same pattern, top square to bottom square, along the straight edge. You will eventually have two squares joined together as a rectangle. Repeat this again with the other two squares, and then join the two rectangles together.

I will eventually do a full tutorial on the invisible stitch and other square joining methods, but until then if you need more guidance please feel free to follow along with this YouTube video for further invisible stitch guidance.

Once you have joined them all together you should have a lovely square to add to your collection!

I hope you guys like it!
