24 Days of Crochetmas: Day 6 – Mystery Christmas Blanket Square 3

For this project there will be 12 different types square. 6 will be different stitch swatches, that aren’t your normal Double or Treble crochet, and 6 will be Christmas-themed motifs. You’ll just have to wait and see what they are!

If you don’t want to make it Christmas-themed, then you can simply do the plain squares in lots of different colours, or keep it in one colour and bring the fun with the different types of stitch. You will end up with 12 squares, 6 plain squares, and 6 patterned squares. You can do this in any combination that you like, so make sure you pay attention to the yarn amounts of each square.

Square 3: Basketweave Square

Note: We will be making a 4, 5, 4, 5, 4 Basketweave st to achieve the right width for the rectangle. If you find that this makes it too wide or too thin, you can try changing the combinations. There is also one tr (or ch3) on each end of the rows.

You will need

110g (just over 1 ball) x Chunky yarn in cream (or your chosen colour) (I have used Women’s Institute Soft & Chunky, 70% acrylic, 30% merino)
10mm hook (this gives a slightly looser tension, I also hold my yarn quite tightly) Continue reading “24 Days of Crochetmas: Day 6 – Mystery Christmas Blanket Square 3”

Get yourself a whole bunch of chunky yarn, you’re going to need it!

I’m also going to be getting people to use #Crochetmas across all social media, and tagging me (@crochetbouquetblog on Insta, search Crochet Bouquet on Facebook, @crochetbouquet on Twitter), so get sharing your Christmas makes this holiday season, and let’s celebrate the season in absolute style!

Happy holidays!
