Written Instructions For Motif

Tip: Print these written instructions, as well as the graph, and use them together, an easy way to learn graph crochet (means you can crochet in any language, LOL. Some of my favorite patterns are Japanese and Russian Graph Crochet Patterns)

 

Ch 7, join with sl st.

Rnd 1: Chain 4, dc in circle, ch 1, dc ch 1* (repeat 14 times), join with sl st in  3rd ch of starting ch 4. There will be 16 dc's and 16 ch 1 spaces

Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in same space, ch 3, sc in next ch 1 space of row below, ch 3 then sc in next ch 1 space* (repeat 13 times) on 14th repeat, ch1 then dc into  starting sc.

Rnd 3: Ch1, sc in same space, ch 4, sc in next chain 3 space of row below, continue this sequence around to last chain 3 space of row below. This is the joining stitch so do the following: ch 1, treble crochet into starting sc. Ch 1, sc in same space.

Rnd 4: Ch 5, sc in next ch 4 space of row below; continue this sequence around to last chain 4 space of row below. This is the joining stitch so do the following: ch 1, treble crochet into starting sc. Ch 1, sc in same space.

Rnd 5: Ch 1, dc in next ch 5 space of row below, ch 1, dc (in same ch 5 space until you have 8 dc's and 8 ch1, ending with the 8th ch 1 as the last stich on hook), sc in next ch 5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch 5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch 5 space, ch 1, dc in next ch 5 space, ch1, dc (in same ch 5 space until you have 8 dc's and 8 ch1, ending with the 8th ch 1 as the last stich on hook), sc in next ch 5 space. Follow this sequence around, it is how the round shape becomes a square! When you are ready to do the last joining stitch, do as follows: ch 1, 1 treble into starting sc. Ch 1, sc in same space. Starting to see the pattern? It's very simple! Only 2 more rounds to go!

Rnd 6: Ch 2, dc in top of dc in row below, ch 2, dc into top of next dc in row below, ch 2, until you have done done a total of 8 dc's in the top of each dc in row below, ending with ch 2, sc in next ch 5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch 5 space, ch 2, dc in top of each dc in row below with ch 2 between each dc, ending with ch 2 then repeat this sequence until you get to the joining stitch (I bet you've got it from here but just in case, here it is again), then ch 1, 1 treble into starting sc. Ch 1, sc in same space.

Rnd 7: Ch 3, dc in top of next 3 dc's with a ch 3 between each dc, ch 3, skip next dc, 4 dc's in NEXT ch 5 space, ch 7, 4 dc's in same space (first pointy corner made), ch 3, skip next dc, dc in top of next dc, ch 3, dc in top of next dc, ch 3, dc in top of next dc, chain 3, SC in next ch 5 space, then repeat entire sequence around. End with ch 3, sl st into starting sc. How did yours come out? Send me a photo! I'll post it with a shout-out to you.

 

 

I will be responsible for sewing the squares together. I will list photos of every quilt made so you can see what your donation became a part of. St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital will be the recipient of quilts for 2016, I am open to suggestions for future recipients and hope to see The Square Project become far-reaching in its ability to provide comfort to those in need! If you want your name (first name only) and where you are from included (state or town only), your donation carries a personal touch that will warm the heart of the recipient that much more! I am so excited about this project and I hope you will get involved as well as invite all your crocheting friends to join!
