Single crochet (sc) = Double crochet

The Pattern

For this square you will need a 3.5 mm hook

Start by making a foundation chain of 31

Row 1. In the 3rd chain from your hook make a sc (the turning chain counts as a stitch). Sc in each stitch across – 30 stitches

Turn

Row 2. Chain 1. Sc in 1st stitch, in the next stitch make an extra extended single crochet (eesc) (insert hook and pull up a loop. 

Chain 3 with the first loop on your hook only. Yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops) 

make a chain 3 before finishing the sc stitch

*sc in the next stitch, eesc in the next stitch*

Repeat between *and* sc in the last 2 stitches. – 30 stitches

Turn

Row 3. Chain 1 and sc in the first stitch. Sc in every stitch across – 30 stitches.

Turn

Row 4. Chain 1. Sc in 1st stitch and the next stitch. In the next stitch make an eesc. *sc in the next stitch, eesc in the next stitch*

Repeat between *and* sc in the last stitch. – 30 stitches

Turn

Row 5. Chain 1 and sc in the first stitch. Sc in every stitch across – 30 stitches.

Rows 6 – 25. Repeat rows 2 to 5 ending in a repeat of row 3

The Border

Across the top and bottom make a sc in each stitch

For the sides make 2sc in the side of rows 1, 6, 12, 18 and 25. Make 1sc in the side of all other rows

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)

You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends

You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
