Recently I was designing our latest Crochet~A~Long… This fun square was part of that pattern, but it occurred to me that some people may not be participating or would just love to add this pattern to their library!! Occasionally I will be adding more styles of Granny Squares to my Free Pattern Category!! So,, Let’s get started with my Granny’s Circle in Square!!
Worsted Weight Yarn in multiple colors… 1-3 yards of each color ~ 3 or more colors
Hook ~ I
St ~ Stitch Ch ~ Chain Sc ~ Single Crochet Hdc ~ Half Double Crochet Dc ~ Double Crochet Trc – Triple Crochet Dtrc – Double Triple Crochet. Sl St ~ Slip Stitch
Each Square should measure approx. 6″ x 6″.
Row 1: Ch4, 9 Dc in the 4th Ch from hook (The first 3 chains count as a Dc), Join with Sl St to top of Beginning Ch. = 10 Dc
Row 2: Ch 3 (Counts as Dc now and throughout), Dc in the same St as Beginning, 2 Dc in each St around. Join with Sl St to beginning. = 20 Dc
Row 3: Ch 3, Dc in same St, Dc in the next St, *2 Dc in the next St, Dc in the next St*, Repeat * * around. Join with Sl St to beginning. = 30 Dc
