according to yarnstandarts.com my yarn is sport weight. i am using 3 mm hook and i think to get the 12" i will have to work 10 more rows or so... i didnt bother to go one size up or something to get the recommended gauge. my first plan was to put green on the middle and then black, as it grows more and more i thought it needs a bit more a green touch..

Yikes, that's a lot more work to get to the right size.  Maybe next month you should try using worsted weight and a larger hook  Grin

yeah you are right, now i am about to finish and i have millions of rows.. i wouldnt mind this but what if the next patterns will not  be suitable to make it bigger with additional rows in a nice way? so i might rip it off and start with two strands held together.. and hope it will work...

i cant beleive how 12"  is so big!

So, here goes - Novembers picks!

For this month, I decided that I was going to make the squares ahead to see if I could get them to work out for me and, also, if anyone had questions, I had at least made them and could hopefully answer.

For the easy square, I followed the directions exactly, using worsted weight yarn and an I hook (5.5 mm) and my square came out just over 12".  So, I know that this one is okay.  Click below to be taken to the easy  pattern:

Easy

Now, the experience square takes a little more explanation - when you open the link you will see that the designer says "This square is easy to make..." well, I disagreed with that statement for 2 reasons.  First, the way it's written is different than I have ever seen and a little confusing to follow and second, you have to work on 2 different rows at the same time and I think that moves it to the experienced area.  I also found 2 errors and I show the corrections below the link.  I followed the directions and used worsted weight and an H hook (5 mm) and came out to exactly 12".    So, click below for the experienced square:

Experienced

Corrections:

Rnd 12 should read - Ch5.  (Dc in next sc, ch2, 4 times...

Rnd 14 should read - Bcl in same st as slst.  (Ch2, sk 2 sc, cl in next sc, 6 times...

Hope you all enjoy these and I can't wait to see pictures!

I am so glad to see the squares up. I have already made the experienced square for a blanket, and can't wait to see all the different interpretations.

Thanks for putting them up. I'm almost done of the easy one, I decided to do it in one colour, dark green.

Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I cannot figure out how to do the experienced one. Once I get to the part where you add the white, it just makes no sense to me. So I put it down for now and started this one instead: http://www.geocities.com/cdjsimon/mandala.html
