As I said in this original post, I saw this square on Attic 24's blog back in January and was immediately smitten. Having originally seen it in an old book, Lucy had worked out how to make it herself a few years back, but had never got round to actually publishing a pattern. A friend of her's had worked it out too and made a beautiful blanket that reminded Lucy of this square and brought about the post that I saw back in January. So I took a leaf out of both their book's and worked out how to make it from the photos on her blog.
Granny Circle Square
(Like a Granny Square, you are crocheting in to chain spaces, not stitches)
Chain 5, s/s to form a ring
3 chains, *1 tr, 1ch*. Repeat ** 11 times (12 trebles). Fasten off.
Join new colour in chain space. 3 ch, *2 tr , 1ch*. Repeat ** 11 times. Fasten off.
Join new colour in chain space. 3 ch, *3 tr, 1ch*. Repeat ** 11 times. Fasten off.
Join new colour in chain space. 3ch, *4tr, 1 ch*. Repeat ** 11 times. Fasten off
Join new colour in chain space. 3ch, *4tr, 1 ch, 4 tr, 1 ch, (4 dtr, 3 ch, 4 dtr) in next ch space, 1 ch*. Repeat ** 3 times. Fasten off.
Join new colour in a chain space. 3 ch, 1 tr into each tr of previous round, 2 tr in each chain space. Continue until corner. 2 tr, 3 ch, 2 tr in corner chain space. Continue around remaining sides of square until back to first 3ch of this round, s/s into 3rd chain, fasten off.
I joined the squares using this excellent tutorial on Attic 24. It really is the best crochet blog in the world! Thanks so much for all the inspiration Lucy!
After all the squares were joined I went round the whole thing with a row of double crochet and then added a scalloped edge - 5 trebles in one stitch, miss a stitch, slip stitch in the next, miss a stitch, repeat.
African Flower Blanket and that's all mine!
NB I have now put together an inspiration pack of some of the wools I used to make this blanket which you can buy at our website here
