Freestylin Basic Square

Crochet freestyle has been my main love for so long, patterns bog me down sometimes and I like to go off on my own little spin on things. My patterns always include the instructions on the stitch per row etc, but more often than not on my blankets you are not bound to strict round counts of stitches (unless is for a foundation to make a more elaborate stitch later where a specific count is required). 

I often get messages about my style - crafters find it fairly refreshing! And are keen to try my patterns out. My solid granny square from my head has been all over my Instagram lately with my current WIPs (work in progress). I thought I would show you guys how easy it is. It’s a fabulous base for a really funky bespoke design - keeping the simple solid back as a main portion of the blanket keeps it all even. But adding my roses and lattice and even shell rounds adds something a little more unique to it all.

R1 - ch4, dc 11 in the 4th ch from the hook. slst to the ch at the beginning of the round.

R2 - ch5, tr into the same st at the beginning of the round, 2dc in each st for the next 2 sts, *tr+ ch2+tr into the next st, 2dc in each st for the next 2 sts, repeat 3 times till you have 4 corners done. slst to the ch space at the beginning of the round.

R3 - ch5, tr into the same ch space at the beginning of the round, 2dc in next st, dc in each st for the next 4 sts, 2dc in next st, *tr+ ch2+tr into the ch space of the corner, 2dc in next st, dc in each st for the next 4 sts, 2dc in next st, repeat 3 times till you have 4 corners done. slst to the ch space at the beginning of the round.

R4 - ch5, tr into the same ch space at the beginning of the round, 2dc in next st, dc in each st for the next 8 sts, 2dc in next st, *tr+ ch2+tr into the ch space of the corner, 2dc in next st, dc in each st for the next 8 sts, 2dc in next st, repeat 3 times till you have 4 corners done. slst to the ch space at the beginning of the round.

following the above method, you simply can increase the size of the square until you are happy with it. Change out rows for different stitches as long as you are even on each side the count can be fudged a little!

HAPPY CROCHETING 🖤
