This bumm leg is not going to keep me down! hehe  Grin. I got my mom to drive me to Hobby Lobby yesterday, I do think DH might have needed a break... I got my yarn! yeah and I got one square done but I want to make another before I post so maybe tomorow I might have it finished, yeah!

Yay! Nothing like shopping for yarn to lift the spirits Wink

Ooh, this looks like fun! I think I'll need instructions on how to join them together at the end though. I've only made a giant square blanket before... Is it hard?

There are several ways to join them together... but I've never tried it either Grin I've been a little bit afraid, for some reason...

I've been wanting to make an afghan for the year and a half I've been crocheting, but always delay it... this is the perfect thing for me! I'm joining right now!

I don't know if I will be able to read the patterns, but I'll do my best... *gets yarn & hook*

If you get stuck, there are plenty of folks here who can help. And, this pattern has a nice easy repeat, so once you get the hang of it, you won't need to read the pattern anymore (until the end... but that's easy, too!).

knkurz, I love your color choices! Your afghan will look fabulous when it's done!

thanks!

I read the whole thread and paidspecial attention to everything said. after frogging 5 rounds twice, I am currently on round 12... but I made the conversion, 12 inches is supposed to be 30,5 cm, and my square won't be bigger than 22 cm

I have been using Caron Simply Soft Brites and a H hook (5mm). uh... well, I guess I will leave it like that, because other squares will end up the same,won't they?

I just add rows until it's 12 inches, that way I get the biggest blankie I can. Cheesy I haven't done one of these yet that my square came out to exactly twelve inches, so if it's under I add rows and as long as it's not too much over, I just leave it.

So I'm in! yay! And I'm also basically insane... doing two of each of the twelve inch squares per month, and eight of the six inchers (to get a babbette type thing, as I saw someone else was also planning on, xD, or one extra big one, depending on the month) and I have to stop in June (my little sister's birthday)... Which is why I have to make more, because she's been bugging me for a YEAR to make her a big cuddle blanket... xD Oh dear. Why do I always get in over my head?

that's a way to solve this! but for now I am keeping the little sizes I get hoping the rest will come out in a similar size, too!

I finished completely  Cheesy it's my first time finishing a complicated granny square pattern and I am SO proud of myself!



I may end up doing two of each of the twelve squares just like you said, Elensule. these are so much fun to crochet!

I think I'll be joining in...although, I don't know if I'll get January's done in time. Going to Hobby Lobby later today to pick up some more purple yarn and some white, and who knows what else! Do y'all recommend using various types/brands/weights of yarn for different parts, or trying to stick with similar yarns? I have lots of lavender novelty yarns, but only half a skein of just regular worsted.

ok i've tried and frogged and tried and frogged again lol

I'm stuck! Round 5 is done...
(in red are from the instructions
Round 6 :
(5 dc in next ch 3 sp, sc in 2nd sc of next 3 sc group) got it! but two times??? How can i do this two times... after the first time, there's a dc, not a 3 sc group...
5 dc in next ch 3 sp. # Sc in next dc and now it says this?

also, i have 2 ch3 spcs in each corner, how am i supposed to end up with three 5 dc groups on each side??

so do i :
(5 dc in next ch 3 sp, sc in 2nd sc of next 3 sc group); 5 dc in next ch 3 sp. # Sc in next dc and repeat?

this is my very first granny square lol... please bear with my stupidity lol

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

After R5 you should have 3 ch-3 groups per side, if you don't then you're going to have to go back. 
At the beginning of R6 each side should look like this...

DC   ch-3    3 SC    ch-3    3 SC    ch-3     DC

Did you frog your square already?  If not, posting a picture so we can maybe see where you went wrong would be helpful.

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

[/color]??

I'm a bit of a noob too, but I think I can help a bit with this part of your question, because I just made my square this afternoon ^^

it says two times because... ok, try to do it like this:

5 dc in next ch 3 sp, SKIP FIRST SC, sc in 2nd sc of next 3 sc group, SKIP THIRD SC, 5 dc in next ch 3 sp, SKIP FIRST SC, sc in 2nd sc of next 3 sc group, SKIP THIRD SC

that is the two times ^^

then this

5 dc in next ch 3 sp. # Sc in next dc

after the upper part you make the 5dc and you will see you are arriving at one of the corners of your square, which instead of a 3sc group, has just one double crochet

think of it as a square, right now the double crochets are the corners

hope this helps!

You go, silverfisch! Your square looks great! And, you understood it well enough to help out someone- I knew you could do it Wink

And, Hellga, you should have no problem finishing this square- it's pretty quick! As for different weights, it might affect the final size of the square, and the overall uniformity to the feel of the completed afghan, but those are minor. The only thing I'd consider would be switching the size of the hook if you change to a different weight yarn, otherwise, you could end up with rounds that are too tight or too loose, if that makes any sense...
