No.103 – Sewing section seven

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week is all about the edging and sewing up of the last twelve squares. You’ll need plenty of the Vanilla yarn, but don’t forget to wash your hands or you’ll end up with some grubby, off-white squares! The square are divided into three groups, starting with… Read More »

No. 102 – Sunshine clusters

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week is all about the Sunshine Yellow yarn, so no colour changes to distract us. At the end of each round the designer is using a different stitch to raise us up for the next round – a double crochet instead of one chain, a half… Read More »

No. 101 – The Purple cross

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! Here’s Square number 101 – not to be confused with Room 101 from Orwell’s novel, 1984, where your worst nightmares come true. That is, unless your worst thing ever is colour changes in a row, ‘cos that’s what we’re doing in the 3rd round. Here you can… Read More »

No. 100 – Half-treble eyelets

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is issue 100 — yes, you read right, our one-hundredth video! I’m finding it hard to believe that we’ve crocheted that many squares and of course when you work it out we haven’t really. Some of the issues have concentrated on the edging and sewing together… Read More »

No. 99 – Padded circle

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! Here we are at Square 99 already, how did that happen so quickly? This week is all blues, starting with a padded circle at the centre. The padding is done by winding yarn around your finger, but do be carefully not to pull it too tight, otherwise… Read More »

No. 98 – Pink openwork square

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is a super Bright pink square to cheer us up. The large loops at the corner help to create an openwork pattern and the third row skips every other stitch, creating a filet pattern that we also did back in Square 89. Here’s a short film… Read More »

No. 97 – Summer flower

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! Well, here is a humdinger of a colourful square, with Bright Pink, Sunshine Yellow and Lime Green. The Vanilla flower offers light relief, with 4-treble clusters around a yellow wheel. The Bright Pink frame is broken up by a row of green half-trebles worked in every other… Read More »

No. 96 – Openwork Square

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This square is all Purple, with plenty of spaces and some large 5-chain gaps at the corners. You can see here the cross that is created after the fourth round. There are some 3-treble clusters too, in that thrid round, but there are no colour changes to… Read More »

No. 95 – Purple loops

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is one of those squares that had me flummoxed for a while. It was all going okay until I got to round four. The pattern says to join the Purple yarn at any place and then to skip 2 stitches. This was one of my three… Read More »

No. 94 – Yellow flower

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week is all about Sunshine yellow, so no tricky colour changes to think about. Starting off with a 2-treble cluster flower it becomes a granny square with big corners – making the corner space with three chains makes that gappy diagonal pattern. Here’s the film of… Read More »
