This might look intimidating, but is very easy, using up your stash of scrap yarn. You only need to know how to chain stitch and single crochet.
Total Time: This depends on how fast you crochet.
Yield: number of squares will depend on the size of your quilt, potholder or placemat
- G and H crochet hook or the size you prefer (I used a G hook.)
- scrap yarn
- graph paper for original pattern, optional
- pen or pencil, optional if making own pattern
- crochet or cross stitch pattern
You can use crochet patterns, cross stitch patterns, or make your own on graph paper as I did with the heart.
- Chain as many as there are graph squares. I do this with a crochet hook one size larger than you will use for the rest of the square.
- Switch to the crochet hook you will use to make the square. (I use a G hook.)
- Single crochet in stitch for each square, ie: if there are 36 squares, you will single crochet 36 times.
- When changing yarn colors, place the "unused" color on top and crochet over.
- Your imagination is your only limit in what design you can make. Your finished blocks can be used individually or stitched together to make larger projects.
