I keep seeing this square popping up in my Instagram feed, and I had to give it a try. If you can’t read a pattern, yet, this one is perfect for you! You gotta learn sometime if you want to take advantage of everything crochet has to offer, and this one is simple enough to dive right in to pattern reading.
Here’s the pattern: Don’t be scared! We’re going to get you through this!
Pattern: (We’ll be breaking it down step by step in the video, but here it is in it’s entirety.)
OK! Now, if you can’t follow along, watch the video (at the bottom of the page), and then go back to the pattern and try to read it. Try not to crochet along with the video … INSTEAD, crochet along with the written pattern. It will make a lot more sense after you watch the video, and you’ll be one step closer to not needing YouTube for your patterns.
Another note regarding reading patterns before you just skip down to the video, look at the picture and get a visual. When starting a new pattern, find one (especially when you’re just starting to read) that has one really good picture of what you’re finished product is going to look like.
There are many joining methods for these squares, my favorite for this square is the “join-as-you-go” method, where you join your squares while making the last round. I’ll have a blog post on that soon, so remember to subscribe if that’s something you’d be interested in learning.
Here’s the video, as promised:
