PART SIX:

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • READ the instructions through first;
  • special stitches are noted and linked to tutorials (if necessary) for each part;
  • please check your stitch count – this IS important for joining!
  • All sizes mentioned are approximate only – this ALL depends on YOUR hook, YOUR yarn and YOUR tension.
    – for this project to be joined with the least effort be sure to use the SAME hook throughout!
  • I use US Crochet stitch terminology.

My Hook:
4.00 mm

Abbreviations: 
CH – chain
SL ST – slip stitch
SC – single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
DC – double crochet
TR – treble crochet
BLP – back loop

Special Stitches:

Standing DC – photo tutorial courtesy of M and M Crochet Designs

Special Stitch – Cross Stitch – work 1 DC into next ST, work 1 DC into SKIPPED ST

What you will crochet:

2 x 6 inch (15 cm) in height and 18 inch in length rectangles

4 x 6 inch squares

INSTRUCTIONS:

Striped Rectangle: Make 2

Colors I used:

  • rectangle square 1 – (A) natural; (I) watermelon; (B) sepia; (J) pomegranate; (A) natural.
  • rectangle square 2 – (J) pomegranate; (B) Sepia; (I) watermelon; (A) natural; (J) pomegranate.

Takes approx to 45/60 minutes to make one rectangle – depending on skill and how quickly you crochet.

NOTE: THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT – You WILL HAVE TO go down at least 2 hook sizes – if you used a 4,00 mm you will need to use a 3, 50 mm OR 3, 25 mm!!
The reasonwhen working straight squares or rectangles like these to make them line up and match the size of your squares to which you intend on joining them – if you use the same hook size the rectangles are much larger – this is due to the tension – squares because they are worked in the round are ‘tighter’. Squares/rectangles worked in rows are ‘looser’.

I used a 3, 50 mm for my rectangles and I should have a used a 3, 25 mm – due to the fact that I crochet loosely.
But once blocked the squares fit the rectangle!
