Supplies

  • crochet hook 3mm
  • a pair of scissors
  • darning needle

Stitches used (US terms)

Important notes on yardage!

Option 1 is the preferred method of joining which will leave you enough yarn for a border next week. However, if you would like a more decorative join, I have put in an alternative option 2. Option 2 will use all your base colour yarns and will not include a border. The choice is yours!

Tips

  • Read through the pattern at least once before you start.
  • The aim of this CAL is to let out your creative side, so choose any colours you like! You can even combine multiple colours.
  • Use the invisible join method to finish, as described in the Tips & Tricks PDF.
  • Sew in the ends right after you finish.
  • If you want to print the pattern, please only print page 7. This is a special page, designed to use the least amount of ink and of course paper.
  • Have fun! :)

Pattern

Option 1

We are working the horizontal rows first. Start with a slip knot on your hook/a standing stitch. You can find a short tutorial on how to do this in the Tips & Tricks PDF.

  1. 1. Grab 2 squares and put them wrong side together. Insert your hook from front to back through the ch2 space in the right hand corder of both squares. Work 1sc.
  2. 2. Insert your hook through the back loops of both squares; work 1sc.
  3. 3. *1sc* across through the back loops of both squares, until you reach the corner. Insert your hook from front to back through the ch2 space in the left hand corder of both squares, and work 1sc.
  4. 4. Grab 2 more squares and put them wrong side together. Insert your hook from front to back through the ch2 space in the right hand corder of both squares. Work 1sc. Continue from row 2.

Repeat rows 1 - 4 until all the squares are joined horizontally.

Turn your blanket and work the vertical rows in the same way. When you get to an ‘intersection’, work 1sc in the ch2 spaces of both squares, ch1, and work 1sc in the ch2 spaces of the next 2 squares.

Option 2

We are working the horizontal rows first. Start with a slip knot on your hook/a standing stitch. You can find a short tutorial on how to do this in the Tips & Tricks PDF.

  1. 1. Grab 2 squares with right sides facing. Insert your hook through the first ch2 corner space of the bottom square, and work 1sc. Work another sc in the first dc. Ch2; work a sc in the first ch2 corner space of the top square, and another sc in the first dc of that same square.
  2. 2. Ch2. Skip one stitch on the bottom square and work 1sc. Ch2; skip one stitch on the top square and work 1sc. Keep zig-zagging along the sides of both squares until you reach the corner ch2 space of the bottom square. Work 1sc in the last dc, and another sc in the ch2 sp. Ch2; then work 1sc in the last dc of the top square, and another sc in the ch2 sp of the top square.
  3. 3. Grab 2 more squares with right sides facing. Ch2; Insert your hook through the first ch2 corner space of the bottom square, and work 1sc. Work another sc in the first dc. Ch2; work a sc in the first ch2 corner space of the top square, and another sc in the first dc of that same square. Continue from row 2.

Repeat rows 1 - 3 until all the square are joined horizontally.

Turn your blanket and work the vertical rows in the same way.

Options for joining

You can use one of my joining suggestions for your squares, but please feel free to join your squares the way you like it! This will become your blanket and this is a great opportunity for you to let your creativity run wild :)
