First of all, I’d like to thank Angie from Le Monde De Sucrette for giving me permission to write up this tutorial… it’s her pattern found on her blog at
All I’ve done for you here is simply broken down her “graphic” pattern into a pictorial for you. This is my first attempt, so please let me know how I’ve done and if there is anything you think I could add to make it more understandable.
I know that perhaps the photos could be better so I’m getting some upgrades to my camera and perhaps looking at reformatting the layout of the blog.. but I promised you a Tuesday Tutorial so here it is!
For sure, I absolutely loved making this blanket and after so many requests from you for a pictorial, it’s obvious that all you guys out there loved it too..
So here we go. …
NB::: All my terms are in US terms.
Stitches you’ll need to know..
Double Crochet dc
Slip stitch ss
Half double crochet hdc
How to do a half double crochet reminder
Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over draw through 1 loop, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook
This lovely little square is made up of four rounds
To lets begin.
Make a magic circle or chain 4, slip stitch into the first chain to make your round.
ROUND 1= 2dc, ch1 .. repeat 6 times
From your ring, Chain 3
It should look like this.. this is your first dc,so add one more double crochet and one chain..
repeat 5 times more…. to give you 6 x 2dc, ch1 .. your circle should look like the photo below
Slip stitch closed and add your new colour coming up through the chain one space as shown in picture below.
Chain 3 … your first double crochet of next round.
ROUND 2 = 2dc, ch1, 2dc, ch1 into next space
To your chain 3 add, 1xdc, ch1, 2dc, ch1 to form your first cluster… as below Here is your first 2dc, ch1 , 2dc.. ch1 cluster of the 2nd round!
Do this in all the chain one spaces till you have 6 x 2dc,ch1, 2dc, ch1 clusters as seen below
Slip stitch closed and add your new colour, coming up through a chain one space as shown in the picture… chain 3 for the first of your double crochets on the next round..
ROUND 3 = 3dc, ch1 x 12
Chain 3, 2dc, chain1 into the first space … then 3dc, ch1 in all the chain one space as seen below.
Do this all the way around till you have 12 clusters of 3dc, ch1 as seen below
Slip stitch closed and add your new colour, chain 3, as shown here in below picture.
Now we begin to make this circle into a square.. this is so exciting!!!
To form your corner, add 2dc, ch1 and another 3dc, ch1.
So here, there should be a cluster of
3dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1 like in the photo below … I hope!
In the next two chain one spaces you need to make a cluster of
3hdc, ch1.. till you get to the next corner… like this
3dc, ch1, 3dc, ch1.. 2nd corner
Then carry on around with the 3hdc, ch1 , into the next two chain spaces all the way around till you have have finished your square and it looks a little something like the one below… fingers crossed.
As you may or may not know, the last round can be put together with the join- as – you-go method too … below are various photos of the blanket I created from this gorgeous little square .. please have a go and please give me your feed back on my tutorial…. I’m exhausted now.. time to snuggle up under my wonderful woolly blanky. 🙂
