5 Mini Squares and Some Sewing
Basic stitches, simple shaping and finishing.
Mini Square Approx – 8.5 cm x 8.5 cm
Blanket Approx – 50 cm x 50 cm
Small amounts of double knitting/light worsted yarn in various colors or
various colors in any yarn available
Approx 25 grams of a Main Color – I used Cream
IMPORTANT NOTE – USE THE SAME TYPE OF YARN THROUGH OUT THE PROJECT!
Don’t stress – the size will just differ if different types are used 🙂
Hooks & Notions:
Size 3.50 Hook / or 4.00 Hook ( I used a 3.50 Hook)
Tension/Gauge is not necessary for this project to be perfect as long as all the blocks are approx. the same size
I use US Crochet stitch terminology
Mini Square: Make 5
Make a magic ring
Rnd 1: CH3 (counts as 1 DC) , work 2 DC, 2 CH, 3 DC into ring. *Work 3 DC, 2 CH, 3 DC into ring. Repeat from * 2 more times. SL ST into top of 3CH
Rnd 2: Work 1 DC into each ST, work 3 DC, 2 CH, 3 DC into each corner. SL ST into first DC
Rnd 3: Work 1 SC into each ST, work 2 SC, 2 CH, 2 SC into each corner. SL ST into first SC
Change color to main yarn
Rnd 4: Work 1 SC into each ST, work 1 SC, 2 CH, 1 SC into each corner. SL ST into first SC
Fasten off and weave in all ends
Note: If because of tension and the square is smaller than circle mini square repeat round 3 (when done there will be 5 rounds).
Sewing the blocks together:
Alternate the mini blocks and sew them onto the
Small Squares with the Add on.
Use photo as guide.
Now there are four big blocks.
Sew these together as shown in photo above.
I used the whip-stitch method to sew my blocks together.
This big block should approx measure about
50 cm x 50 cm
Don’t stress if it doesn’t 🙂
(Mine is in truth 49 cm x 52 cm, but don’t tell anyone 😉 )
