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 24, not too tight.

  • Now you are going to work into the 6th 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)

  • CH 1, then skip a stitch on the foundation chain - the next stitch will be placed into the stitch after the skipped one, as shown by the scissor point in the photo.

  • TR into this stitch.

  • Repeat the CH 1, SK 1, TR until you have FOUR holes.  

  • Now work a TR into EACH of the next 4 stitches  (no chains in-between)

  • Going back to the CH 1, SK 1, TR pattern, work until you have FOUR holes, ending on a TR in the last stitch.   You should have 4 holes, 5 solid Trebles in the middle and 4 holes again.

  • CH  and turn, ready to work back down the row. (This CH 3 counts as a TR + a CH)
  • Skip the next stitch and TR into the next, which is the top of the TR post from the row below - as shown by the scissor point in the photo.

    • CH 1, SK 1, and TR into the next stitch, as shown by the scissor point.


  • Repeat the CH 1, SK 1 and TR until you have FOUR holes.


  • Now work a TR into EACH of the next FOUR stitches.

  • Going back to the CH 1, SK 1, TR pattern, work until you have THREE holes, then to end this row you will be working a TR into the stitch as shown by the point of the scissors.

  • Repeat the last row another two times, making FOUR rows in total.

  • Next row:  CH 3 and turn.
  • Now you are going to work a TR into the SPACE shown by the scissor point.
  • The next TR will be worked into the next stitch.
  • Next, work a TR into the SPACE.

  • When you get to the middle 5 TR's work a TR into each stitch.
  • Then continue working across placing a Treble into each space, ending with a TR in the last space..

  • Next, work a TR into the turning chain as shown by the scissor point.

  • Your next row is a row of Trebles.  (Don't forget the CH 3 at the start) Be sure to place the first one in the correct space as shown by the scissor point.  Also make sure you get the last one in the turning chain from the row below as you have been doing, otherwise your square will start to decrease.
  • Work another row of Trebles, making it three rows in total.

  • Now we are going back to the pattern we started with.
  • CH 4, then skip the next stitch and TR into the next,  as shown by the scissor point in the photo.

    • CH 1, SK 1, and TR into the next stitch, as shown by the scissor point.


  • Repeat the CH 1, SK 1 and TR until you have FOUR holes. 


  • Now work a TR into EACH of the next FOUR stitches.
  • Going back to the CH 1, SK 1, TR pattern, work until you have FOUR holes.

  • Repeat the last row THREE more times.
  • Now you should have 4 rows of pattern, 3 rows of plain trebles and 4 rows of pattern - equalling 11 rows.


Make another 11 of these squares - 12 in total.

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



I will be back next week with Square number 5.
