Merry Go Round Square

Merry Go Round Square

"This is the third of four 5 inch squares I made as homework for a crochet retreat. It's much easier than it looks, with alternating accent rows on top of a background of dc stitches. The accent rows are worked in the front loop, so they stand up on top of the background, creating an interesting texture. Since the color changes with every row, you can carry the colors as you go, leaving fewer ends to weave in when you're done!"

Difficulty LevelIntermediate

Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet Gauge13 dc x 7 rows = 4" square. The actual square is small enough and works up quickly enough, that there's no reason to do a separate gauge swatch. The finished square should be 5 inches.

Finished Size5
