My Notes

This square is worked flat and features Tunisian simple stitches. Here are my notes from when I was working on my square:

  1. This is an easy block to make but there are a LOT of ends to weave in!
  2. I carried yarn in the back for the reverse pass, I weaved in the carried yarn while making the forward pass of the next row. The only yarn I cut and rejoined was the main color for the forward pass. I didn’t weave in any ends, I managed to crochet over all ends under the first row of the border. It is a little unclean at the back as you can see in the picture of the back of my square below but it saved a lot of time. It is also possible to make a double border like for traditional mosaic crochet patterns if you’d rather not weave in all the ends.
  3. I changed color 4 times every return pass.
  4. My square – I decided to reduce the number of stitches in my square and added a wide border.
    1. # of stitches = 30
    2. # of rows = 23
    3. Border – I made:
      • One round of sc (single crochet) stitches (3 sc stitches in the corners) –  I aim to get equal number of stitches on all edges so I accommodated for that here.
      • One round of sc (single crochet) stitches in the back loop only – one sc per stitch and 3 sc stitches in the corners.
      • One round of hdc (half double crochet) stitches in back loop only – one hdc per stitch and 3 hdc stitches in the corners.
      • One round of sc (single crochet) stitches in back loop only – one sc per stitch and 3 sc stitches in the corners.
      • One round of hdc (half double crochet) stitches in back loop only – one hdc per stitch and 3 hdc stitches in the corners.

Blocking

I used the stitch markers from Walnut Farm Design to keep track of my stitches and I wet blocked my square by soaking it in warm water and pinning it to my blocking mat until dry.

Yardage and Size

My square is 12″ x 12″ in size (along the edges) and used about 120 yards (110 m) of yarn and weighs 1.52 oz (43 gms).

Important notes

The copyright for each pattern is held by the designer. You may ask for additional resources and tutorials from the designer of the square only. No one else can make a full tutorial of the pattern unless permitted by the designer. I have included my notes and links to my tutorials that I think might be helpful in making the square but those do not supersede the instructions and tutorials provided by the designer.
