Granny Square #11

Granny Square #11 is the last cluster square for a few weeks. If you haven’t made clusters yet start with Granny Square #7 where I give full instructions on how to make a cluster stitch. Next week we will be moving onto a new special stitch!

Granny square #11 with SSDK in pale rose.

This square makes me think of a flaming wheel! The clusters look like little flames on a solid wheel! This cluster square is great if you like your patches with less holes. The first two rounds create a solid circle with no gaps. You can crochet the patch in one colour or change colour after each round of you like.

Photo Tutorial

The patch in the photo tutorial is made with scheepjes stonewash in moonstone. This yarn is my favourite cream yarn I’ve used, it’s so soft and easy to work with. I’m using a 4mm hook instead of the recommended 3.5mm hook.

Round 1. 12 stitches.
Round 2. 24 stitches
Round 3. 12 stitches, 12 spaces.
Round 4. 48 stitches.
