PATTERN NAOTES
  • NOTE #1: You will need to know how to switch colors to do the last row as written also known as tapestry crochet.
  • NOTE #2: You will skip the stitches that correspond with the front post stitches. From the back it will look like you skipped stitches where the front post stitches are.

MAKE FOUR SQUARES

Round 1: With CA ch6, join with a sl st to 1st ch to form a loop. Ch3, 2dc in loop, * ch2, 3dc * in loop 3 times, ch2, join with a sl st to top of beg ch3. 12dc, 4 ch2 sps

Round 2: ch4 counts as a dc & ch1 sp, sk next st, dc in next st, * (2dc, ch2, 2dc in ch2 sp), dc in next st, ch1, sk 1 st, dc in next st * 3 times then ( ) once more. Join with a sl st to 3rd ch of beg ch4. Fasten Off. 24dc, 4ch1 sps, 4 ch2 sps

Round 3: With CC join with a sc in any ch2 sp, 2sc in same sp, * (sc in next 2 sts, tr in skipped st from rnd 2, sc in ch1 sp, tr in same st you skipped in rnd 2, sc in next 2 sts), 3sc in ch2 sp * 3 times then ( ) once more. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Fasten Off. 32sc, 8tr

Round 4: If a tr is making the square dip no matter how loose you make it you may want to try a dtr – double triple crochet. With CB join with a sl st to any middle sc of 3sc group from previous rnd, ch3 counts as a dc, dc, ch2, 2dc in same st, * (dc next 4 sts, tr in same skipped st from rnd 2 working between the 2 sts from rnd 3, dc next 4 sts), 2dc, ch2, 2dc in next st * 3 times then ( ) once more. Join with a sl st to top of beg ch3. Fasten Off. 48dc, 4tr, 4 ch2 sps

Round 5: With CC join with a sc in any ch2 sp, 2 sc in same sp, * (sc next 4 sts, fptr around tr from rnd 3, sc next 3 sts, fptr around tr from rnd 3, sc next 4 sts), 3sc in next ch2 sp * 3 times then ( ) once. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Fasten Off. 56sc, 8fptr

PUTTING SQUARES TOGETHER

You will be working through both squares. Once you get to the corner of one set of squares you will continue with the next 2. This is to eliminate ends to weave in. However if you are uncomfortable with this way of putting the squares together just make sure they are put together.

With CC and WS facing and working through both loops on each square join with a sc in middle sc on 3sc group (corner of each square), sc in next 15 sts, hdc in next 2st (corner of each square) sc in next 15 sts. Do this the opposite way. 4 squares should now be one.

BORDER FOR SQUARE

Round 1: With CC in any middle sc of 3sc group (corner of any square) join with a sc, 2sc in same st, * (sc in next 15 sts, hdc in next 2 sts These sts are the middle sc of 3sc group of the original squares – essentially doing a hdc in these 2 sts will prevent a dip in the middle of the side, 15sc in next sts) 3sc in next st * 3 times then ( ) once more. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Fasten off.

Round 2: With CB join with a sl st to any middle sc of 3sc, ch3 counts as a dc, dc, ch2, 2dc in same sp, switching colors every 2 sts between CA & CB dc across each side. Corners are 2dc, ch2, 2dc in middle sc of 3sc group. Each corner should be in CB. Join with a sl st in top of beg ch3. Fasten Off. Weave in all ends.
