1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Spiral squares, with pattern! on: February 09, 2017 03:34:33 PM

I think of crochet in terms of the big picture, so I write patterns that way. 
But, I hope this helps someone who wants to make a spiral.

This makes the smaller of the 2 spirals.

Rd 1: With the first color, make a Magic Circle, ch2, sc, dc, then use a stitch marker.  Add in the next color with a ch2, sc, dc, stitch marker.  (Repeat for next 2 colors).
Rd 2: Continuing on top of the adjacent colors, going in a circle as if you were crocheting in the round:  2dc in each of the next 2 stitches, use stitch marker. (Repeat for next 3 colors). (16 stitches)
Rd 3: 1dc, 2dc, 1dc, 2dc (Repeat for next 3 colors).
Rd 4: 1dc, 1dc, 2dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2dc (Repeat for next 3 colors).
Rd 5: Ch2, (dc, hdc) in next stitch, sc, sc, fasten off (Repeat for next 3 colors).
Border: I just put a sc in each stitch around, except on the corners I did (2sc,ch2,2sc).

I will be happy to answer any questions.  I don't have any "in-progress" shots, though.
(To make the larger one, I just went one more round, doing 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2dc, etc. Then adding all 4 colors to the border.)
Thanks for looking!

My brother-in-law is hard to shop for, but the Misfits always are a win for him!

I made this based on a perler-bead pattern from http://kandipatterns.com/pattern/print/17546

I never got into Pokemon.  Too busy catching other things, I guess. 
But now I have daughters and an iPhone. 
And a crochet habit.

Fantastic!  Looks kinda like tie-dye!  I love the idea to put the squares at a diagonal for the bag.

Great work!

The daughter of the Kelda! 

My 8-year-old adores the Feegles.  She was one for Halloween.  So I made her one (as we crafty moms do).

I used the Han Solo/Leia pattern from the Star Wars crochet book as a template.  Then added her hair.  The mouth never turned out right so I just omitted it.

Also, sorry about the sideways pics.  I'm still trying to resolve this issue...

I, too, want to tell you how gorgeous this is!  The stitching is nice, but the subtle addition of the beads is beautiful!  I really think you should do more of this!

Awesome!  I just bought a t-shirt that had that same phrase.  I wish I would've had this instead!  Great work!
