Glad to see all of your lovely squares coming along nicely on Ravelry. Everything is looking really great so far! This week's squares are similar in that you start in the center and knit or crochet your squares from the center out. Here are the directions for the 2nd knit and crochet squares!
|Crochet Square #2|
-dc (double crochet): Yarn over hook, insert hook under both loops of next stitch, yarn over hook and draw loop through stitch; yarn over hook and pull through two loops on hook; yarn over hook again and pull through 2 remaining loops on hook.
-Roughly 100 yds of worsted weight yarn
-US 7 DPNs (set of 5)
-US 7- 16" circular needle
-US 8-H Crochet Hook (for cast on)
-4 stitch markers, 1 that is a different color than the rest
17 sts = 4" in stockinette stitch.
CO- cast on (using the method linked to below)
m1l- make 1 left
m1r- make 1 right
CO 8 sts using the Emily Ocker Method. (Please see the video I linked to, it's amazing and will really help if you are not familiar with this method.)
Divide 8 sts evenly over 4 needles with your 5th needle handy to knit with.
*You will be knitting in the round using 5 needles to start and switching to the circular needle when the piece is large enough.
Rnd 1: *yo, k1; repeat from * to end of round. (16 sts)
