I was making complicated snowflakes for the holidays, and inspiration (and laziness) struck. Just look at what adding a few picots will do for the 'ol granny square!  Smiley

What do you guys think?




Here's the pattern. I used the thick crochet thread #10? and an I hook. I never wrote a pattern before so if you find errors, lemme know. I took the basic granny instructions from a crochet website. Pay attention to round 4-my instructions!

RND 1: Ch3, 2 dc in rg. Ch 2, *3dc in rg, ch3. Repeat from * 2 times more. Ch2, slst in top of ch3.

RND 2: Sl st in the first 2 dc's and in the first ch 2 lp. Ch3, 2 dc in ch 2 sp, ch2, work 3 dc in same sp. Work the following 3 times (Ch1, work 3 dc, ch2, 3 dc in next ch 2 lp.) Ch1, join with slst to top of ch 3.

RND 3: Sl st in the first 2 dc's and in the first ch 2 sp. Ch 3, 2 dc in ch 2 sp, ch 2, work 3 dc in same sp. Ch 1, work 3 dc in next ch 1 sp. Ch 1. Work the following 3 times (Work 3 dc, ch2, 3 dc in next ch 2 sp. Ch 1, work 3 dc in next ch 1 sp. Ch 1.) Join with sl st to top of ch 3.

TaaDaa! Round 4!! (Read as one long set of directions. I just broke it up for reading ease.)
(Corner) Sl st over to c3 space. C3, dc, ch3 and sl into top of dc. Ch 4 and sl into same stitch. Ch3 and sl into top of dc as before. 2 dc.

(Single picot) Sl over to c1 space, then ch3, joining with sl st in same ch 1 space.

(Center of edge) Sl over into top of first dc. Ch 3, dc into top of next dc. Ch 3, sl st into top of last dc made. Ch 4 into same stitch with sl st, ch 3 into same stitch with sl st. Dc.
Sl st into next ch 1 sp. ch3, joining into space with sl st.

Repeat single picot, then corner.

Repeat around in this order: (corner, single picot, center of edge, single picot, corner)

Here's a link about picots. http://www.woolcrafting.com/crochet-picot-edging.html
I did mine a bit more complicated but used the basic concept. I can write a pattern if there is interest. (It is VERY easy)
