I’ve decided that my next crochet project will be a month of making 6″ square crochet blocks.
Each day in March I’ll make a different square and post a photo of it on my blog. I’ve set myself this challenge as I want to be able to improve my pattern reading/following skills . I’ll be doing all sorts of crochet squares from the basic to the more difficult but hopefully this month long project will feed my creative crochet side without me getting bored of doing the same stitches.
Day 1: Traditional granny square
I thought that for day 1 I’d start with the easiest type of square whose pattern consists of only 7 rounds of treble crochet (UK terms) and chains .
I’ve not blocked this square yet but I wanted to get a photo up today as I’d promised you I would.
Question – where do you buy your yarn online? I. In the past I’ve been on knitandsew.co.uk but their website is terrible to use, any other suggestions? I seriously decimated my yarn stash making my round cushion so I want to restock lots more colours of DK.
