Good afternoon everyone. I have finally been able to post my pattern for the square I used in the pretzel barrel baby blanket. Enjoy
Sue’s Solid Granny Square￼
worsted weight yarn
Size H crochet hook
ch = chain dc = double crochet hdc = half double crochet sl st = slip stitch
Note: Generally, 6 rounds will yield a 7 inch square. However, older, thicker yarn will crochet up a little larger.
Chain 4, sl st into first chain to make a ring.
Round 1: ch 3 to count as first dc, 2 dc into ring, ch 2, 3 dc into ring, ch 2, 3 dc into ring, ch 2, 3 dc into ring, ch 1, hdc into top of beginning ch 3.
Note: by using a ch 1, hdc combination at the end of the round, you will be in the center of the corner, thus making it much easier to change colors smoothly on subsequent rounds.
Round 2: ch 2 to count as first dc, 1 dc in the space created y the hdc. (dc in each of next 3 dc, 2 dc, ch 2 , 2 dc in ch 2 space) 3 times, 2 dc in beg ch 1 space, ch 1, hdc in top of ch 2. (7 dc on each side.)
Round 3: Repeat round 2, each side will increase by 4 sts (11 sts on a side).
Continue in this manner until square reaches he size you need.
Round 4: 15 sts on a side
Round 5: 19 sts on a side
Round 6: 23 sts on a side
Finish off leaving a 24 inch tail for sewing squares together.
