Happy New Year to you all!
Here are the squares I picked for January - I made both of them last week to check the pattern and see that all was okay. There are a few typos in the experienced square but since they are easy to figure out, I didn't think I needed to fix them for you. In the easy square, there is a large mistake so after I post the link, I will tell you the correction. I used the recommended hook (size H, 5.0) and the experienced square worked out fine but I had to make the final round of the easy square in double crochet rather than single crochet to make it large enough.
This month's squares are called January Square and New Year's Eve Easy
Round 6 of the easy square should read: Ch 4, sk last dc (*2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in next ch 2 corner, ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc, ch 1, sk ch 1 sp, dc in next dc, <ch1, sk 1 dc, dc in next ch 1 sp> 4 times, ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next dc, ch 1, sk ch 1 sp,* dc in next dc, ch 1, sk last dc) 3 times, rep from * to * once more, join in 3rd ch of beg ch 4. Finish off main color.Experienced
Have fun with these!
