Crochet Flora Afghan: Flower Clock Square


Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd as well as my friends over at yarnspirations.com. We’re gonna continue our journey with the Flora Afghan. This is May and we are going to do the Flower Clock. So when you go to look at the downloadable you now can find the Flower Clock Square just like you see. So what we have here this is revision number one. If there are any changes this revision number will change and this consists of a total of 13 rounds. Of all the squares this one is the easiest. So if you’re gonna struggle with any of the other squares and you’re not sure that you can do it if you do more of these um, you can maybe save yourself some grief. However, you know, it’s always nice to be able to push yourself. I’m also gonna be teaching you some stuff today that’s not written here in the sense of giving you some extra tips that you can use other, elsewhere in your crochet. So we’re gonna continue along. We’re gonna be using a 6 mm, size ‘J’ crochet hook and I wanna show you the mini-me version. I’ve decided to do a threaded version of this and I’m gonna be showing you that next. So here are my miniature versions just like you see. They’re a total of seven inches. The regular one is 14. So I’ve decided to do like this. This is using a 2 mm, size something hook. [laughs] We have to look up of what that is. What I’ve done in the book for this particular month is that I’ve added information about what these colors are and what my goals are and each time that I’m doing it I’m just doing a testing of the pattern doing the miniature versions. So this one is really neat. It’s got so a little bit of overlays. That’s not too complicated and again, as I said, this one is the easiest one of the entire set. So if you’re concerned about anything else you can see that if you just have fun with this you can actually make an entire afghan just of these and really have a lot of fun like carnival kind of Fiesta atmosphere with it and you can also make them the same if you prefer that as well. So you ready to get going? Let’s start with round number one. So we’re gonna begin. You need to make a total of two of these for the afghan again, you can make more if you wish. So we’re going to just create a slipknot to begin and I need you to chain four. This is pretty consistent through all, throughout all of them is that we’re gonna start the same way. So we’re gonna chain a total of four. So 1, 2, 3 and 4 and I’m using my Caron One Pound. So I want to do 11 double crochets in the first chain from the hook. So the fourth one so 1, 2, 3, 4 so it’s the very first chain that we started with and I wanna do a total of 11. So the chain work that we just skipped over is included as one of the double crochets. So with the 11 that I’m gonna put in with this chain three that gives you a number of 12. So I want you just to start now that we’ve started count the first chain as 1 and then 2 and then 3 and the et cetera and do 12 all the way around and I’ll see you at the end of this round. Once you have your twelve on there I want you to slip stitch then to the top of the first chaining of four that you started with and then just slip it and slip. And what I want you to do is get rid of the yarn tails at this time. So just grabbing your scissors cut your yarn and what I would do and I’ve kind of I didn’t show you this but the back of it I still have all the yarn tails to take care of but what you can just do is just feed it through and you can weave it through a few spots here if you would like to and what that will do is that’ll hide it in a it will trap it in so you don’t necessarily have to sew it in later. Of course that you can use a tapestry needle to go back and forth in order to hide in all your ends. Throughout this project what I’m gonna be doing is trimming so that it doesn’t get too complicated and I’m gonna be trimming my starting. Hide that in if you haven’t done so already and then just begin to do round number two. You can change colors as often or as little as you wish in this project. It doesn’t matter to me, it’s all subjective. So I’m going to start off with round number two. I’m gonna show you a cheating technique. Create a slip knot and in the pattern it says to join with a slip stitch and chain three and that counts as your double crochet and et cetera. If you really want the stitches to look really good what I would do is a standing double crochet. Watch how I do it. I’ll demonstrate it twice. So you have your slip knot already on. I want you just to pinch so push it down so it will not rotate. So if you let it go it’ll rotate, pinch down and loop the hook once so wrap around and then going into the stitch that you wanna go into. So wrap and go into the stitch and then pull through, notice that I’m still pinching down and then pull through two and two. That is a standing double crochet. So I’ll do it again. So with the slipknot already on the hook okay, just pinch so it doesn’t wanna rotate around and just wrap once and going into any stitch. I want you to pull through and then pull through two and two. That is a standing double. So what you wanna to do for this round is that you wanna apply two double crochets into each. I’m gonna show you another cheating technique in just a moment because I’m about to hit where the slip stitches which always creates a really awful ugly gap and I can show you how to hide it without impeding on your work at all. So what we have here this is where it’s showing and you have the top of the stitch that I just went into but the next one is not over here. So let me show you what it would look like if you did it as per your regular instruction. Watch what happens. You’re gonna put two stitches into the next one and look at that awful gap. You are gonna see it, you’re gonna hate it and it’s just the nature of crochet. However, here’s how you hide it. So what you wanna do is that see this where it’s joined treat that like it’s a stitch. It’s not but treat it like it is and I want you to put the first, you have to keep the stitch count the same so what I want you to do is go right where it’s joined and insert the hook in and pull through and then pull through two and hold it. Then go into the stitch where you’re supposed to go and double crochet and as you finish that stitch you’re gonna have three loops pull through all three. Those two just became one by doing so. So in order to keep the pattern consistent there has to be two double crochets in this, this one here. And what that did is that that filled in that awful gap, but never changed your yarn count at all for the amount of stitches. So what I want you to do is continue to rotate around and put in two double crochet into each of the stitches all the way around. That cheating technique you can do it anytime in any project when you see that happen and you will notice that I will do it again in the future I may not say anything, but that’s how I got it to be all consistent so you don’t see any spaces in the circle. So please do that all the way around two double crochet into each. So I’m coming up all the way around putting my two double crochets into the last one and you should have two groups of two. That one where that I did the special thing don’t count that as three stitches just still count that as two. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. What I want you to do, slip stitch to the top of the first and pull through and through and let’s get rid of that yarn again and I’ve already shown you how to do that. So please do that again. Let’s go on to round number three. So we’re gonna create a slip knot to begin. Now you have a choice, you could do it a slip stitch to any stitch, chain three and that counts as your first double crochet and then you two double crochet in the next and then one double crochet and two into the next. You gotta make sure you go into the back loop only. So if you’re new to crochet there’s always two strands. So together they make up a stitch. If you go in the one closest to you that’s a front loop and if you go into the one that’s farthest from you that’s a back loop and we wanna play in the back loop just for a visual. So what I wanna do see where it’s joining here, remember that really awful gap. We’re gonna also do the same technique of hiding it. I’m going to show you one more time of a standing double crochet because I continue to do that now. It seems to be my thing. So now that I have a slipknot wrap the hook first and pinch and then going into the back loop only pull through, pull through two and two and there is your first. So you’re either gonna join it and chain up three which counts as a double crochet or you can do a standing double crochet and now you’re gonna do two double crochet into the next. So 1 and 2 and so that’s gonna be your consistent thing going all the way around. So in the next stitch is just 1 and now we have that gap again. So what I want to do is I don’t wanna fill that in so that looks like it belongs. So I’m gonna put the first two stitches together. So just wrapping it so the first join and the stitch together. So just go right into the join and and pull through, pull through two and then go into the stitch you’re supposed to go into. When you go into that join stay towards the back of the back loop in order to do it, so just gotta fake it up a little bit. So you keep the line being consistent and then going into the stitch you’re supposed to go into and then pull through all three. And because this one we’re supposed to put two in we’re gonna put another double crochet in there. So again, you’ve just hidden a gap without changing the yarn stitch count. So if you don’t wanna do that, that’s up to you. So it’s one into the next and two into the next one. So that’s something that you know, you see the projects being done all the time and you see these gaps and you know it’s a nature of the craft but it doesn’t mean you have to have it there if you have the skill and desire to wanna get rid of it. So please do this all the way around so it’s one and then two and then one and two in the back loops only. Now I’m coming up all the way around the last stitch in is two double crochets. Not because I’m telling you that it’s because it’s keeping in the count of, of the repeats. So it was two and then one. So you should technically have the two double crochets in the end. Please join, let’s get rid of this yarn and then let’s begin another round. So do that now I’ll see you in back in a moment. As we move into round number four you’re gonna see the red area here and then we have a peekaboo of a color and then red again. So this is 1, 2 and 3 so this is three rounds. So what you wanna do is be strategic with that which one is gonna be the eye-popping color that creates that that shape. You see here I had that did it like this. So I did white and then we’re at the red section now or the blue at this moment and we’re gonna move on. So you wanna choose your color very carefully on what it makes it look like to be awesome. So let’s begin round number four. Let’s begin number four. So we’re gonna stay within the regular stitch work now, so we’re not doing the back loops and what we need to do is we need to start off in one stitch. It doesn’t matter which one you start doesn’t really. So what you can just do is that you could just insert in, slip stitch, chain three counts as your first double crochet or you can do a standing double. So that was a standing double there and then we’re gonna put in two more double crochets. So this entire round there’s gonna be a total of eighteen groups of these three double crochets together. So what I want to do is that I’m gonna skip one and then, sorry I’m out of the view, and I’m going to go three double crochets into the next. So 1, 2 and 3. Okay, and then skip one and then three double crochet into the next and I want you to do that all the way around. This is round number four. Okay as you get all the way around there should be eighteen groups of these three double crochets and I want you to join it to the beginning and then let’s get rid of this yarn and then we’re gonna go on to the next round. So let’s go on to the next round and what we’re going to do at this moment is this is round number five. So you see 1, 2, 3, 4. This is gonna be my peekaboo color. It’s gonna stand out from the rest. I’m gonna create my slipknot. So where we’re going to join is that I want you to pick the middle of any of the groups of three. So it’s the middle stitch of any group of three and you can chain three and chain up um, sorry, join and chain three to count as a double crochet or you can do a standing double if you wish and then you are going to apply three more double crochet into that. So you’ll notice that I gave instructions of skipping how many stitches to get to the next one but you know when you really look at it from a perspective like this, you can easily see where to go next. So see the next group of three, it’s the middle one. So you had to skip a total of these stitches across in order to get there but if you just look for the middle one of three, it’s no brainer. You can just see it and then just put in four double crochets into each. So what I want you to do is four double crochets into each of the middle ones in the grouping of three below. So jump to the next middle one and continue with four. Please do that all the way around for this round. So when you get all the way back around you’re just going to slip stitch it to the top of the first one and the eighteen groups of three that you had now just turned it into eighteen groups of four double crochets that you had. So now what we want to do is pick up the same color that we had before and now we’re gonna make this into a peekaboo that really kind of resembles the wall clock. Now I know wall clocks have 12 points. This has 18 big deal right. [chuckles] If this is the biggest problem that you have today, I think you’re having a super, super day. So let’s I just weave in our ends and let’s begin the next round. So let’s pick up our yarn again and it’s gonna be the same color as this so that this does a peekaboo look, it’s kind of almost Mandela related. So what I want you to do is that I want you to grab any first stitch of a grouping of four. So it’s the first double crochet and what I want to do is a standing double uh, single crochet. So how you do that is that you insert your hook in and if you don’t wanna do that, just insert your hook and slip stitch, chain one and then single crochet. But if you do it this way you can save yourself some time. So insert into the stitch you wanna go to wrap the hook and pull through and don’t pull, it pull it through this one you now have your two loops pull through both that is a standing single crochet and I want you to put in a single crochet in each of the remaining double crochets in that grouping of four. So there’s four double crochets there. Now, we’re gonna do an extended double crochet. So what you want to do is see where this these are um, there’s a gapping space? That’s where you want to play. So what you’re gonna do is wrap the hook first and then go right into that space okay, and then just grab the yarn pull through and then give it a bit of slack. Okay, just a bit of slack pull through two and two and that was an extended double crochet. So starting in the next grouping of four so just single crochet in each. So 1, 2, 3, and 4 you’re gonna do an extended double crochet down in between where these are separated. So just wrap the hook going right in, pull the yarn through give it the same looking amount of slack as you did with the other one and then finish it. So that’s a regular double crochet. So it’s an extended version. So please do that all the way around. This is the round, you will notice that I will have advice for slip stitching. I’ve already given it to you in the sense of hiding and stitch work by just faking a stitch by doing two togethers over the top of where things are joined and you can see that you do a really good job. So that’s in the pattern of the moment, but it’s something that you can um, you’ve already kind of known already because I’ve covered it. When you get all the way around you still gotta do that extended double down in. So just wrap, going in, so that’s technically your last stitch. So at obviously you could see I was missing it. So now I’m gonna slip stitch and then get rid of this yarn and then we’re gonna carry on. So you’ll notice that It’s not sitting there I don’t wanna flatten, it I can but, uh, it’s gonna settle out, it will, you watch. So let’s get rid of this yarn and begin the next round. So let’s begin the next round. It’s going to be one double crochet in each of the stitches going all the way around. So right where you did the join you can do that um, special um, stitch like I did. So let me just start a few earlier just to make sure that you got it. You can just a slip stitch and chain three counts as your first double or you can do a standing double which I’m about to do. If you put your tail down too you can hide that as you go. So it’s one double crochet into each and I am just a few stitches shy of where I did the join and I’ll show you how I can cheat that so it looks good each and every time. So I’m going one into each. It’s about not changing that counts. So the next one here the stitches right here but this join looks like it’s in the way. So and that’s because it always takes a little bit of extra yarn. So just wrap the hook and go where it’s joined insert in pull through, pull through two and hold it, then go into the stitch that you’re supposed to go into. Pull through, pull through two and hold and then pull through all three. So that went into that gapping space to hide it and now it still ends up with one stitch at the top. So that’s really the only place you have to worry about that. So that’s my kind of slip stitching technique that I addressed in the pattern itself. So you’re just gonna do one double crochet around each and please do that, and I’ll see you at the end of this round. So I’m getting all the way back around and I’m just slip st or I’m just going into a little very last one. And then I’m just going to slip stitch to the top of the first. So I’m gonna get rid of that yarn and what I wanna do is that I want to actually show you a technique here. You can decide do this if you would like to. This here is going to pop out and do a nice rim like this/ If you would like to do an invisible join here’s what you’re going to do. Okay, so instead of just attaching this just like so, what I want you to do is that I want you just to pull up some yarn okay, and then cut it and I want you to continue to pull so it’s just popping out of this last one. To get the look to be consistent see these two here, when you loop they look like they come out of the same one. So that’s what we wanna do. So you wanna come from the one side out to the other just like that and come through and when you come back to the other one, I’m not gonna pull it tight yet. You wanna go down through the middle here and what that will do when you pull it snug it will tighten everything up. And stay toward the backside of it using the tapestry needle and just weave it in and out a total of three times. It’s an invisible join. You can use that with your stitching techniques especially with Mandela’s when you have stuff like that um, it helps you really hide in any kind of imperfections in the joining as well. So it’s another technique you can use you’d only really want to use that when you’re changing colors, though. So now what we can just do is get rid of this yarn because I’ve just woven it in. We’re gonna move on and I’m just having fun with my colors. You’ll notice that it’s not slit, sitting completely flat yet. I’m not worried about it because the next round it’ll appear pretty much come this, come to be flat and what we’re going to do then in the next round we’re gonna play in the back post only and it’s gonna fold this up and then you’ll notice that you’ll get a nice bowling shape when it’ll happen. So let’s do that next. So let’s begin the next round. So we’re going to start off with the slipknot and we’re gonna go into the back post only so what you can do is do you can do a standing uh, one or you can just slip stitch around the back post. So if you just go around the back post and then just pull through and then chain three there is your first back post double crochet if you wish and then you can back post crochet as normal crochet as normal double crochet or you can do a standing back post double crochet. So just put that on there and then just push down wrap it once, going around the post and then et cetera and then you can lay down that straggler on top so that you can’t wrap it in the next ones. So just going in, okay, so when you go in just put that straggler over it and it will get stuck underneath there and do a few of those just like that. So it’s continuing to be one double crochet into uh, back post double crochet into each so you will notice the last three rounds all had 90 stitches per round. So we have not increased so I’m expecting somebody will email saying how is it possible that you have three rounds of the same. Well, if you looked at what we were doing it it we haven’t increased at all. So we’ll start to increase in the next one and then we’ll start um, noticing that all the more. So you’ll notice that this will start to pick up and give a beautiful line as you do that. So there is your texture. So let’s please do that one back post double crochet in each around. I’m gonna give you a little bit of a tip here what happens sometimes in these back posts when you go in sometimes you can miss actually not getting the whole post and you get only a partial and then you start to go and then you continue to go and you look around and then you realize that one doesn’t look right. That’s because you gotta watch and make sure you get all the strands. So I just technically did that just a moment ago, and I thought you know I’m gonna show you that because I know people are gonna say I have that why did that happen? It’s because you’re not going around the whole post and you only just grabbed a few of the plies that were making up that post. So please do that, continue all the way around one back post double crochet in each. So in coming all the way around just doing my last back post double crochet and then I’m going to join it. If you’d like to keep the same color you can for the next round. I’m not going to life’s a little short to always use the same colors. So I’m just going to trim it get rid of it and move on and do the next round. The next round is the final in the circle before we start transitioning to make this into a square. So let’s do that next. So let’s begin and we are gonna go into a regular stitch again. Again, you can go in slip stitch chain three, t counts as your first double crochet or you can do a standing double. So I’m gonna do a standing double just to be consistent. So I’m gonna just go in, pull through, pull through two and two. There it is and then put another one in there. So if you’re doing your slip stitch, chain three put another double crochet in there. So the this round here is consistent of making it the final growth before we start converting it to a square. So the next ummmm, what do we have, the next of four stitch is there one double crochet. So we’re just gonna count to four. So 1, 2, 3, and 4 and then there’s gonna be two into the next one and that’s gonna be your repeat pattern going all the way around. So there’s two into this one and then again there’s gonna be the four. This is where it’s joined. If you would like to do that special technique, then just do it. So that’s 1 of four so put it where the join is don’t finish it, go where you’re supposed to go and then pull all three loops together and then that hides it. So that was considered 2 of four and 3 and 4 and then put two into the next one. These joining techniques of being able to hide, see, it’s so hidden it’s, it’s hard to believe it’s even there. So just make sure four by itself, two into the next, four by itself, two into the next. Do that all the way around. Okay, so I’ve been doing my, going two into there and then four into the next now. Now this is where there’s two. Now my problem is that I have five stitches left. So somewhere along the line here I added a stitch and my word about it, hell no! So what I want to do is that I want to put two stitches together so that I continue to have my four. It’s important that I have my stitch counts right at this moment. So what I wanna do is that I wanna put the next two together and then that is 1of four. The other thing that you can do if this happens to you, see I have two here and then they’re supposed to be um, um, four only what you can do instead of putting two here you can actually just continue just to single crochet across. So there’s technically your two and then you have your four left over. You can cheat it when you have two right? So it’s, it’s easy to cheat it at this particular stage because it’ll be hardly noticeable and it’ll pull together beautifully. So just join uh, slip stitch it so I know I’m not supposed to leave those kind of tips in these kind of videos but when you lay it down flat, you can barely tell it’s even there, right? So why why stress it? You’ll notice that it’s sitting pretty much flat as well. So let’s say continue along and we’re now gonna convert into the square. So let’s start converting to a square. Right where you left off is where I suggest you start. Okay, so right where you did the join that’s where I would start for this particular round. Now we’re gonna start off with the treble. You can either slip stitch in, chain four, that is your treble or you can do a standing treble. So wrap the hook twice pinching down, going into the same stitch pull through, pull through two, two and two and leaving this underneath the line. So I want you to treble one more time into that same one. So you’re gonna finish this corner when you get back around. I’m gonna take you through two sides and then you can reverse this video if you would like to, if you need to if you can’t remember. So the first one will be one treble. So I’m just gonna call them out as I do it. So 1 treble. There will be three double crochets. So 1, 2 and 3. There will then be five half double crochets 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Then eight single crochets 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. Then there will be five half double crochets. So we’re on the other side. So we’re at the halfway point of the side so we just reverse what we just did. So there will be five half double crochets as we head to the next corner. So five so 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Then three doubles 1, 2 and 3 and finally one treble and then we’re gonna do the corner into the next stitch. Okay, so you’ll notice that it’s gonna start to squaring off on you. It won’t square in the first time around it’ll square in the second. So the next one is the corner. So in this corner, there will be two trebles followed by chain two and in the same stitch I want you to apply two more trebles and that allows you to turn the corner. So I’m gonna take you through another side. It’s exactly what we just did. So it’s gonna be one uh, sorry one treble. So wrap twice, three doubles, five halves, eight singles, five halves, eight sorry, three doubles, three doubles followed by one treble and then a corner again. So the corner to recap is two trebles, chain two and two trebles. Please do that same idea just reverse this video if you need to review all that again, it’s one, three, five, eight, five, three and one and then a corner. Please do that all the way around. So as we come back around I have the right number stitches if you don’t honestly you can fake it so well. So see I have the right number stitches, so I should have four left at this moment. But say I only have three what I could just do is if I only have three there’s three double crochets supposed to go in here. I would just put an extra stitch in there and therefore you’ll have your balance. That’s assuming that you don’t think you screwed up anywhere else. Honestly, I do it all the time so don’t tell anybody to do that and if you have one too many than what you can just do is put two together and therefore you will lose a stitch by doing that. Really it’s almost hard to tell. Okay, so we’re gonna finish off our, er, our end and there’s three double crochets there and the last one is one treble but we’re not quite done remember that we only started off with a half a corner so we’re gonna come into the same one that we did with the joining and we’re putting in two trebles and then we’re gonna do a half double crochet joined to the top. So just wrap the hook going into the top of the first and just do a half double crochet and don’t get rid of that yarn. Keep it on and we’re gonna begin then the next round. So we have one more round to do some counting and then you can have a break from counting from that point. So let’s begin the next round. We’re gonna chain up three counts as their double crochet. So you can’t do a standing double there and you’re gonna double crochet one more time into the corner. So each one of these um, the next three stitches are each a double crochet. So 1, 2 and 3 and then there’s gonna be three half doubles. So just three halves so 1, 2 and 3 and now we have a big number to do 18 single crochets. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 17 and 18. So now you just have a few left. So once you have your 18 then you’re gonna do halves for the next three. So 1, 2 and 3. Now if you screwed up in the row below or the round below you’ll see it this time around the last three have one double into each so 1, 2 and 3 and then finally in your corner is always gonna be the same. It’ll be two doubles, chain two, two doubles. So I’m gonna take you through one more side and then you can reverse the video if you need to. And you’ll notice that it’s almost straight the next round will get it closer and closer to being straight. So the next three are one double into each, 1, 2 3. The next three are halves so 1, 2, 3 and then 18 singles. So let’s count those out. So 1 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18. The next three are halves, 1, 2 and 3 and the final three are doubles. So 1, 2, 3 and then your corner again. So two doubles followed by chain two and two doubles. So just reverse the video if you need to review that again. So it’s three, three, eighteen, three and three. Please do that all the way around. So when you get all the way around, you’re just gonna finish it off the rounds as you know them and remember that when you started you only did a partial corner so right where the corner is you’re just gonna put in two double crochet first and then join it with the half double crochet to the top of the first chain three. So just wrap and going into the first pull through and then pull through everything. So you have two more rounds to go and this is gonna be an accent color um, that you see in the purple here. So I chose something that kind of ties everything together and you can see that I tied in the blue with the blue. It’s up to you your creativity. You can decide what goes for you. I can see people doing this in a solid color, too. It all depends on their their mood and what really appeals to them really? So let’s move on to the next round. Okay, the next two rounds are the final rounds and they are the simplest thing ever and you can start off in any corner. It doesn’t matter which one and you can start off with the standing double if you wish or just slip stitch, chain three and that counts as your first double and this one round is just so simple. It’s an item funny. It’s a little bit of a mental break for you and you’re gonna put another double in there. So there will be two so you’re going to start off with a half the corner. So each stitch is going to be one double crochet and then when you get to the corner it’s always gonna be two double crochet, chain two, two double crochet. So no thinking really just a matter of doing. so one double crochet in each, corners two, two and two. So two doubles, two chain, two doubles and carry on. I’ll see you at the end of this round. When you get back around make sure that you fill in that final corner with the last half of that turn and then just join to the top of the first one with the half double crochet join. We have one more round to go and that’s it for today. And you just need to make two of them. Remember that if you’re struggling with any of the other ones that this is the easiest one of them all I feel. So you may think otherwise, but that’s okay. Everybody has a different point of view. So what we’re gonna do final round and this will tie it in with the other ones that you will be making for this particular afghan. So let’s do your final. We’re gonna start off with a slipknot. Let’s do a standing single crochet. So going into any corner it doesn’t matter which one just insert in, wrap the yarn and pull through but do not pull through the first loop leave the two on there and then pull through two and that’s the sanding or standing single crochet. I want you to apply for more single crochets into that one. So 1, 2, 3, and 4. So with the standing and the actual um, four that gives you a total of five what you need, five single crochets. So essentially you’re gonna move across and you’re just gonna apply one single crochet into each of the stitches going all the way across. In the corners it’ll be five single crochets as I just showed you. So please do that now and this is your final round and we’re gonna be wrapping up in just a moment. When you get back around you’ve already done your corner by putting in your five single crochets so you’re just going to join it to the top of the first single crochet that you started with. Now because this is the final I would recommend that you get that tapestry needle out, let’s finish it properly and let’s get rid of our loose end right here right now. So you’re just gonna turn it around where you can hide yarn, perfect and sometimes you can’t and it’s usually right on an edge. I used to do my crochet projects many moons ago not doing the tapestry and it always falls out. You know you’re kind of upset you don’t the time to do it, but it takes, it takes um, really motivation. So we’re just going to drag the yarn through the back if I see the hook on the front side I know I’ve gone too deep so just going through once, don’t warp the, the project at all. So when you pull through just pull taut but don’t pull like so it’s tight. Okay, and going through three times and therefore it that’ll never fall out on you and then you’re just gonna put that aside. So you just need to make two of these. Let’s pull up a miniature version plus this one. You can block it later so if it’s not sitting completely flat just check for any loose tails that you may have and just clean it up and just lay it nice and flat and let’s look at a miniature version. So this is a really big I love big granny squares like this. That’s why I designed it and you can see the smaller version. See it’s only one quarter of the size. So whether you wanna do a miniature or a big one like this, it’s kinda fun and you can play around with your colors make it really kinda cool and that’s it for now. So have a good one and we’ll hope to see you again next month as we continue our journey and if this is uh, your following and the stitch along is done this was something that we did in the summer of 2019. 👋
