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
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. Easy
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
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".Experienced
Enjoy this month's squares!
