I designed this variation of a traditional granny square in order to make a sweater. Here you’ll find a downloadable, written pattern with chart as well as an instructional video. The pattern will make a crochet motif of between 6cm/2.36″ and 9cm/3.54″, depending on the yarn thickness and hook size used. See image below.
Tools & Materials
You can use any yarn weight and corresponding hook size to make this motif but for these instructions (see above), I am using a Light DK / Sport weight yarn in three colours – A, B & C with a 4mm / G hook. I like to recommend Clover Amour, Tulip or Lykke wooden hooks.
I have used:
Vanilla – DK Rare Breed Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester in colourway “Sunrising Hill”
Yellow – Naturally dyed fine pure British Wensleydale light DK in “Sunset Gold” from The Outside Dyers
Orange – Naturally dyed fine pure British Wensleydale light DK in “Melon” from The Outside Dyers
Green – Falkland Poldale DK in Lichen from WitchCraftyLady
