Half a Square, Squared. Sort of.

13 Jan

A helpful tutorial for your hooking pleasure, which, if you were to want to make tomorrow’s Free Pattern Friday, you might want to pay attention to…dun da da DUUUUUUUN:

The Half Granny Square

1. Start by chaining 6 & joining with a sl st to make a ring.

 

try not to let your kitten eat your crochet hook.

2. ch3, 3dc, ch3, 4dc (YES, I said 4!)

 

aww, isn't it cute?

3. ch3, 3dc in the space between the first 2 st of the previous row, (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next sp, 4(YES, 4!)dc in the space between the last 2 st of the previous row.

4. forget to take a picture of step three.

5. do the whole thing over again — 4 dc in the spaces between the first & last stitches, 3dc in all the other spaces, & treat the top as your corner (3dc, ch3, 3dc).

 

it's the trifecta of triforce triatha-chets (except for that pesky 4dc shell on each end)...

6.  repeat the pattern over and over and over and over and over and…

 

three is a magic number (except when it's 4).

7…over and over and over and… well, you get the idea.  If you make this big enough it will turn into a pretty sweet looking shawl.  Mine is almost big enough for the Travelocity gnome (oh yeah, he wears shawls!  Airplanes get cold!)  Just sayin’.
