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 »

No. 93 – Five-colour square

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! Don’t be fooled by your Vanilla yarn this week, as this is a super five-coloured square.

No. 92 – Gap-sided square

No. 91 – Turquoise cartwheel

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week is all about a turquoise cartwheel, comprising sixteen double-treble spokes, the rim re-enforced by a round of double crochet.

No. 90 – Sewing up section 6

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week we’re edging and sewing together section 6 of the throw. I realised that my Square No. 89 isn’t going to fit in, so I had to unravel it and do it again, which I should have done in the first place (we live and learn).… Read More »

No. 89 – Purple filet

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week’s square is all purple, with some filet crochet stitches in the fourth round. I think I made a mistake on the 3rd round and have a few too many stitches down the side. I’m sure you’ll be able to avoid that pitfall, as I’ve generously… Read More »

No. 88 – Orange flower

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is a lovely bright square with an orange flower at its centre and a Periwinkle blue ring. The shaping action doesn’t happen until the fourth row with the Bright pink, where there are trebles in the corners and half-trebles down the sides. The corners are either… Read More »

No. 87 – Teal trebles

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is a lovely calming, single-colour square, after all the excitement of last weeks colour changing extravaganza. And it’s not just us that need a rest, when we come to put the whole throw together, we’ll need the foil of these plainer squares to show up the… Read More »
