Square Motif Pattern 102214B

by M. J. Joachim



Step 1: Chain 4; make 3 double crochet stitches in 1st chain (3 skipped chain count as 1st dc)

Step 2: Chain 4, slip stitch in 2nd chain from hook to make picot, chain 2

Step 3: Make 4 dc in 1st chain ever made - see Step 1 - This will be the center of your square

Repeat Steps 2 & 3 around so you have 4 sets of 3 dc in 1st stitch; end with Step 2 and join with a slip stitch to top chain of 1st chain 3 in round

Step 4: Chain 1, make 1 sc in same space; sc in next stitch

Step 5: Chain 5, make 1 sc in each of next 2 dc

Triple Crochet Cluster Stitch

a. yarn over (twice), insert hook where indicated

b. yarn over, draw up a loop

c. yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook (twice), leaving 1 loop remaining on hook from stitch

d. Repeat Steps a - c until you have desired number of stitches as indicated, with remaining loops from them on your hook

e. yarn over, draw through all loops on hook

Note: You should have 1 more loop on hook than stitches you made, so for a 2 stitch triple crochet cluster, you will have 3 loops on your hook, and for a 7 stitch triple crochet cluster, you will have 8 loops on your hook


Step 6: Make one 2 stitch triple crochet cluster in next chain 2 space (before picot), chain 10, make one 2 stitch triple crochet cluster in following chain 2 space (after picot)

Step 7: Make 1 sc in each of next 2 dc, chain 5, make 1 sc in each of next 2 dc

Repeat Steps 6 & 7 around, ending with Step 6 and joining with a slip stitch to 1 sc in round

Step 8: Slip stitch in next sc and into chain 5 loop

Step 9: Chain 4 (counts as 1st triple); make a 7 stitch triple crochet cluster in chain 5 loop, chain 1 to close cluster

Step 10: Make 7 dc + picot (chain 2, slip stitch in 1st chain) + 7 dc in next chain 10 loop, to make corner

Step 11: Make one 7 stitch triple crochet cluster in next chain 5 loop + chain 1 to close cluster

Repeat Steps 10 & 11 around, ending on Step 10; join with a slip stitch to top of 1st cluster in round
