Well, it's December 1st and time for our next set of squares.  It's hard to believe another year has almost passed us by  Grin

I have once again made these squares ahead so that I knew the patterns were okay and to see if I could get the measurements properly.

The easy square shouldn't be any problem getting it to the right size since you just keep repeating 2 rows over and over until you reach the size you want.  I used the suggested hook (J, 6.0).  You will see when you open the link that there are 2 squares shown, one solid and one striped - the instructions are for the solid square but it's very easy to figure out where to switch colors for the striped one. 


I have made the experienced square a number of times and it's one of my favorites!  I must admit that it's really not that experienced but I thought with December being such a busy month, I should pick something a little 'easier' so that people would actually get it done  Smiley   You need 5 different colors for it and, in my opinion, it's best if 4 of the colors contrast with each other - it makes the design stand out more.  I used the recommended hook (K, 6.5) but on the last row I made double crochets rather than single crochets so that it would come out at 12".


Enjoy this month's squares!

BTW, my squares are all in thread.

Okay, that now explains something to me - when I first saw these ones posted, I thought your experienced one looked more intricate and now I know why!

lol it's not a real one (like a wedding anniversary) it's just my anniversary since when we started dating Smiley I still call it an anniversary
My mum and dad got married when she was 21 and they're still together 25 years later.

Okay, I understand!  We got married when we were both 20 and are still happily married 21 years later!  Guess you all know how old I am now!

They are very cute but I'd have to say, they look like sheep to me  Grin

Oh, he's great!  I love the different color legs and his trunk (which reminds me of a vacuum cleaner).

Glad I now know the 'real' place socks go - I remember reading an article years ago in a magazine called "The Sock Gobbler" and, in that story, missing socks were blamed on the dryer.

She's too cute!  How can something so small and so cute be sad?

I think she is hilarious - but in a good way!  I actually thought the utility belt was a skirt, at first  Grin

What kind of yarn did you use?
