Pattern notes

The pattern is written using UK terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology click this link.

Join each round with a slip stitch.
The square is worked in the round. You do not need to turn your work after each row and you continue working in the same direction as before.
[Stitches written in brackets like this are all worked into the same stitch.]
For the first stitch on each row: Make 1 chain to move up to the next round if the round starts with double crochet. Make 2 chains if the round starts with a half treble crochet, and make 3 chains if the round starts with treble crochet. These chains count as the first stitch in the round.
In this pattern, you will be asked to join the new yarn in the last stitch of the previous round. Use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch so you can easily find it.

You may find that this square is still retaining a hexagonal appearance. Do not worry as when sew together with the other squares, it will take on a square shape as there is an equal number of stitches on each side.

Round 24
Finishing Off


I like my crochet to sit flat, no matter how it is being used, e.g., tucked under you on the sofa. However, if you like a bit of movement in your crochet you can simply ignore these instructions.
Using Cream tack the chain-2-space from round 16 into place.

Sew in all the ends. If you are making the full lapghan, I would recommend not blocking until the blanket is assembled.

    White on white is pretty, but very difficult to see. For demonstration, could you do a different color yarn or different background? I”m sure everyone would understand it isn’t the intended project colors.

      Hej Shirley,
      I understand what you mean. I had toyed with the idea for these square but ultimately decided against it. I will keep it in mind for other projects using a lot of white.
