I saw this blog post and absolutely loved it…. I especially like seeing the edges. I love the little Vs on the edge of crochet! I really do!
When I tried using Jan Eaton’s target square pattern in her book I came a cropper with the 7 ch bit, the square was a wibbly mess. (Practise makes perfect and all that, but the * and ** and repeats instructions for this square are really confusing to a bear with little brain like me.)
I saw this pattern on CrochetQueen’s blog.
Then I tried to crochet my own AG square using the pattern, but got really confused; mostly about what to do with the 5 ch. There were holes where there weren’t meant to be holes!
I wailed to CrochetQueen that I needed help. She added some tutorial pics to her pattern in about a day. What a star!
How helpful is that?
The generosity of other bloggers in giving patterns, advice and free tutorials is very much appreciated. Maybe one day when I’m more proficient I can do the same? It would be nice to pass it on….
So anyway, using CrochetQueen’s pattern and photo tutorial here’s what I’ve come up with so far…
I know I’ve basically posted the same photograph again and again and again, but I do LOVE those edges!
I used a 3.5 mm hook because I’ve realised my tension on granny squares is always a bit loose and they looked too wibbly using a 4mm.
The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK from my pack bought from here.
While I waited for these photos to load I’ve had a think about trying a slight variation on the number of trebles in each round. I’m going to have a little play again later.
Yesterday afternoon I looked out of the window to this, they really make me smile….
Can you see it? :-)
