The pattern for this square was adapted from Drops Design as well as inspired from a Japanese magazine that I saw in the net but couldn't remember the site. I have used four colors for this square. I love the choice of colors.
I am going to show you step-by-step how to crochet this square. But before that remember ch = chain, dc = double crochet, sc = single crochet, sl = slip stitch. Come on, let's get started.
Using color A make 4 ch to form a ring. Make 4 ch to count as 1st dc and ch. *Make 1 dc in ring followed by 1 ch into ring. Repeat * 7 times. Finally you will have 8 dc in the ring. Join.
Ch 4. 1 dc in same stitch. * Ch 1, 1 dc in next stitch, ch 1, 1 dc in same stitch. Repeat *. You will be making 2 dc in each dc with a chain inbetween. So finally you will have 16 dc in total with 1 ch between each stitch. Join together.
Ch 3 to count as 1st dc, 2 dc in same stitch. You will be working a dc cluster here (leave the last loop of each stitch on the hook and finally pull them all together. If you don't know how to work a cluster stitch you can do google search and find some video tutorials). *Ch 1, make a dc cluster (3 dc worked together) in the next chain space. Repeat *. Totally you will have 16 dc clusters with 1 ch in between each cluster. I hope I am not confusing you. Join. Cut off the yarn and attach a new color B.
Ch 3 to count as 1st dc, 2 dc in same space. *Ch 1, 3 dc in next 1-ch space. Repeat *. Join. Cut off yarn and attach next color C.
Ch 1, sc in same space. *Ch 3, 1 sc in next 1-ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in same space, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space, ch 7, 1 sc in same ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space. Repeat *. Join with sl st.
Using the same color ch 1, 1 sc in same stitch. *(4 dc, 1 ch, 4 dc) into 3-ch loop, sc in next sc, (6 dc, 2 ch, 6 dc) into 7-ch loop, 1 sc in next sc. Repeat *. Join. Cut off yarn and attach color D.
Ch 1, dc in same space. * Ch 3, 1 sc in 1 ch-space between 8 dc, ch 3, 1 dc in next sc, ch 5, (1 sc, ch 3, 1 sc) in 2-ch space between 12 dc, chain 5, 1 dc in next sc. Repeat *. Join.
Ch 3, 4 dc in 3-ch space, 4 dc in next 3-ch space, 5 dc in 5-ch space, (3 dc, 2 ch, 3 dc) in corner loop. Repeat and join.
Ch 3, 1 dc in each dc till end of row. 1 dc, 1 ch, 1 dc in corner loop. Join and cut off yarn.
Now, what am I going to do with these squares once I finish them? Guess!
