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.
If you are up for the challenge of routinely changing your yarn, this project is for you. This page is about using cross stitch patterns for crochet.
