Crochet Square

Sample crocheted using a 4mm hook with DK yarn

 


Abbreviations: (UK terms) ch = chain, dc = double crochet, ttr = triple treble (wrap yarn over hook 3 times. Go into stitch and pull up a loop. *Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Repeat from * until 1 loop left.
Special Stitches:
ttr group

Start the first triple treble crochet cluster in the next stitch. *Yarn over three times and insert the hook in the stitch and draw up a loop. Yarn over and draw through the first two loops. Yarn over and draw through the next two loops. Yarn over and draw through the next two loops.* You should now have two loops left on your hook. Repeat from * to * until you have 4 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops.

Double ttr group = 

Work a ttr group into the same dc as last group up to the point of having 4 loops on the hook. Don’t pull yarn through these loops. Miss 5 dc. Into next dc make a ttr group until there are 7 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all 7 loops.


Chain 26 (or a multiple of 6 + 2) if you want to make your squares bigger or smaller, just remember to crochet more or less rows to make a square!)
  1. (Right side) 1dc into 2end ch from hook. 1dc into each chain to end, turn.
  2. 1ch, 1dc into each dc to end. Turn
  3. 5 chain (counts as 1ttr), miss first 3dc. Make 1ttr group into next dc. 5 chain. *1 double ttr group, 5 chain. Rep from * to last 3dc. In same dc as last double ttr group make a ttr group but don’t pull through the 4 loops. Make 1ttr into last dc until 5 loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops. Turn
  4. 1ch, *1dc into top of group. 5dc into 5ch arch. Repeat from * to last group. 1dc into 5th chain at beg of previous row. Turn
