217-219::365 little crewel squares

three little squaresLink
These 3 little squares were made from Appleton Crewel Wool from Wool & Hoop. I received the entire set of The New Crewel colors years ago as a Christmas gift. Mostly they just sit there looking pretty, but I have used the thread for crochet before. In fact that picture is one of my most popular Flickr photos, not because it is amazing but because the first two words of the title are somehow a somewhat popular "adult" search term on Google Images. Oh, internet, why!??

Each one of these was an experiment in altering a basic granny square. The first two rounds of all three squares were made using this method with a really small hook (it is so old it doesn't have any size markings). After that I switched to a C hook.


Then for the first square:
round 3: in each ch space & each corner, work 2 dc, ch, 2dc around.
round 4: in the corner work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc), 2 dc in next space, 2 sc in next space, 2 dc in next space, repeat around.


For the second:
round 3: in the corner work (dc, ch 1, tr, ch 1, dc), ch 1, (dc, ch) in each every other dc and space between clusters, repeat around.
round 4: 2 dc in each chain space around with ch 2 in each corner.


For the third:
round 3: in the corner work (sc, ch 2, sc), ch 2, sc in between clusters, ch 2, repeat around.
round 4: in the corner work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc), 3 dc in each ch2 space, repeat around.

  1. I went straight over to see the title of your pic. OMFSM!!! Really??!! Love the variants you did! I've been working on a few squares myself, and after not really loving them, I kinda did a little tweaking as I've seen you (and Craftyminx) do!! Now I kinda love them:) Thanks for sharing so much:)
