I LOVE the experianced pattern.  It worked up so easily, and it looks much more complex than it ended up being.

Of course, I am having trouble on the easy one.  Thats just my luck.  Wink

Amethyst, I'm planning on doing them in all kind of weird and wonderful colours. Don't know if it will work out in the end but at least it won't be boring Tongue

Here's what I made.

My easy square became right size when I used bigger hook, even if the right size hooks aren't available anymore. I crocheted with 5mm hook and I didn't crochet as tight as I normally do. My mom has dyed the yarns with natural colours (plants and/or mushrooms).

More wonderful squares!

tmd, it looks like you and I had the same idea - I, too, used a dark purple for the easy square (really, it's not blue like it looks)

On a different note - I am amazed at how many of you used multiple colors for the easy square.  When I first started picking out patterns for October, I decided to keep the easy one simple and tried to find a pattern with only one color.  Then, I decided that for November, we would try 2 colors on the easy square and get some experience changing colors, however, it's obvious most of you know about color changes!

Everyones squares look fab, and I have bought my yarn (browns and greens so it can go on my sons bed), but I'm stuck on the easy square at row 2 when it says "dc around half dc" - can anyone help?  I don't understand where to put the hook in to do the dc.

I may try the more experienced square to see how I get on with that!  I am quite new to chrochet and have been practising the stitches to make stripy scarves and a blanket, so it is a bit strange following a pattern! 
Thanks for your help

I confess, for the easy one, I didn't get why the pattern was making it so complicated and winged it. I could try doing what I did again for the first couple of rows so I remember, and post that here. Just need to go grocery shopping first.

libbybee,
               at the end of the first round you made 1 hdc into the 3rd of beginning 3 ch. That hdc formed a loop, which is the corner of the square. You insert your hook into that loop. Hope this helps.

This is what I do: insert the hook around the post/stem of the prior dc instead of in.
Hope it helps.

Homerof2, As I have said before, this CAL is an absolutely brilliant idea, and, a huge number of people think so, too. So, please, please consider starting a doiley CAL, just like this one.

I know that amdm has already answered this but I wanted to highlight her answer again so that everyone sees it and gets it right!

Be sure to insert the hook INTO the loop!
