CAL – Part 21

Granny Square – Sunshine 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 various colours – I’m still using Stylecraft DK yarn that I got in my order from Deramores =D
  • 3mm hook
  • Embroidery or Darning needle ( for weaving in ends )

Skills used/required:

  • Treble Crochet (tc)
  • Half Treble Crochet (htc)
  • Chaining
  • 3 or 4 tc cluster (3tc-cl | 4tc-cl)
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • double crochet (dc)
  • Magic ring

Gauge:

Final square = 12cm

I called this square the sunshine square as I think it looks like a sun, but I have run out of yellow! I will definitely be making another in yellow as soon as I get some though! Enjoy =)

As normal, this should make approximately a 12cm square, but if squares are not 100% identical in size for the final stitch together we can account for this when sewing together.

Row 0: Magic ring, 10 dc into the ring, finish with a sl st into the first dc.

Row 1: ch 3, 2 tc- cl into same space, * ch 3, sk st, 3tc-cl *. Repeat from * three times. Finish with ch 3, sl st into ch3 of beginning 3 ch. ( 15 stitches total)

Row 2: ch 3, 2 tc- cl into same space, * ch 3, (3tc-cl, ch3, 3tc-cl) in next ch3 space *. Repeat from * three times. Finish with ch 3, 3tc-cl, sl st into ch3 of beginning 3 ch. (30 stitches total)

Row 3: ch 3, 2 tc- cl into same space, * ch 3, (3tc-cl, ch3, 3tc-cl) in next ch3 space *. Repeat from * eight times. Finish with ch 3, 3tc-cl, sl st into ch3 of beginning 3 ch. Fasten off (60 stitches total)

Row 4: Attach new yarn to ch3 space. ch 1, 3 dc in same space, * 3htc in next space, (3tc, ch 2, 3tc) in next ch 3 space, 3htc in next space, 3dc in next space, 3dc in next space *. Repeat from * twice more. 3htc in next space, (3tc, ch 2, 3tc) in next ch 3 space, 3htc in next space, 3dc in the next space. Finish off with sl st into 1st dc in the row. (72 stitches total)

Row 5: Tc in each stitch in the row, except the 2ch corner spaces, where you will (tc, ch 3, tc). Finish off with sl st into first tc in the row. (80 stitches total)

Row 6 (optional): This row is to make up the size if needed. Dc in each stitch in the row, except the corner ch 3 space, where you will (2dc, ch2, 2dc). Finish off with sl st into first tc in the row. (96 stitches total)

I made up two squares, the one with a 4 stitch cluster (left square), one with a three (right). It is totally up to you guys which you choose, as they both create a slightly different look. The 4 stitch looks a bit chunkier which I like, but the 3 stitch looks a little prettier as its smaller and daintier. Or you could just make both if you’re undecided! =D

I have also attached a crochet chart to this post for those of you who would rather follow that. I haven’t put row 6 on the chart, so if you find your square is a little small, then please do follow row 6 above.
