5251  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - DECEMBER on: December 01, 2006 05:15:29 PM
Since you all know I have the December squares finished, I might as well post pictures!

Easy and a close up of the dc cross stitches


Experienced and close up of the 4 colors I used (to prove I really did because the larger pictures doesn't show them and also to show why it would be better to use 4 contrasting colors - they would have shown up better!)

look at all the destashing she destashed all over me!

That's sounds so hilarious!!!!  But, from the looks of what you got, I'd say CraftyDeb can destash on me anytime  Grin

however if you don't sign up for it you can't quickly grab someone if you say hey!  I can send that person this or that...

Just cause you sign up doesn't mean you have to exercise your ability to swap... but if you don't sign up you won't be able to do it when you want to...

Nothing like putting the pressure on us all  Grin

Piratecore, I love your new pendant - such nice bright colors!  The shirts are fantastic!

Don't worry, you live too far away from me to make a quick trip to 'grab' the necklace - but, Boywonder, should be concerned because he's not that far away and that bike shirt is great  Shocked

boywonder, I have 2 sons that would love to have that bike shirt!

Hmm, you look about the same size as them, hmm, an eight hour drive from here to your place, hmmm....

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.
