Welcome to Square 5.

Square 4

I am using Hayfield Bonus Aran yarn with a 4.5mm hook.  Gauge is not important, although all of the squares do need to be the same size.    Check they are square by folding your work into a triangle and seeing if the edges meet.  The pattern is written in UK crochet terms.

  • Chain 25, not too tight.

  • Now you are going to work into the 4th chain from your hook  (do not count the loop on your hook as a chain, work where the scissor point shows)

  • Work a Treble into this stitch  (Yarn round hook, through the stitch, pull yarn back through  (3 loops on hook) yarn around, pull through two stitches (2 loops on hook) yarn around, pull through 2 stitches  (1 loop on hook)

  • Now work FIVE more Trebles into the SAME stitch.

  • ***Skip TWO stitches and SS into the next, where the scissor point shows.

  • Skip TWO stitches and into the next work SIX Trebles.
  • Repeat from *** - you should end with a SS into the last stitch.

  • Turn and CH 6.

  • Into the top of the fan from the row below, you want to make a SS right in the centre, having three Trebles on each side, as shown by the scissor point in the photo.

  • CH 6 and SS into the top of the next fan, as before.

  • Repeat all the way across until you reach the last fan.  SS into the last fan then CH3.

  • Now work a TR into the first TR of that last fan, as shown by the scissor point.

  • Turn.  Work 6 Trebles into the SS on top of the fan from the previous row, as shown by the scissor point.

  • SS into the chain space from the previous row.

  • Then work 6 Trebled into the top of the next fan.

  • Repeat all the way along until you come to the last chain space. You need to SS into the 3rd chain of this chain as shown by the scissors.

  • These are the two rows that form the pattern.

  • Repeat the two rows until you have 7 rows of fans, then end on a chain and SS row to finish off.

Make another 11 of these squares - 12 in total.

This is how your week five squares will work within the final make-up.

I will be back next week with Square number 6.
