Círculo in a Square pattern!
For a few weeks I had this idea for a square in mind, but my stitch count was never really right. As a rule in life, things happen you least expect - And after a long day, I got everything perfect without even thinking!
Círculo means "circle" in portuguese - I am pretty happy with the way the circles stand out in the pattern.
A few notes before we begin:
1- This was made with cotton thread for a 1,75mm crochet hook, but I used a 3.00mm one.
2- If you are using yarn and let's say, a 4.00mm hook (or bigger), it's best if you don't make round 7. It would turn out very big.
3- As with any crochet piece, this looks better if you block it!
4- This pattern is written with the american crochet terminology.
tr -Treble crochet
dc -Double crochet
sc -Single crochet
hdc - Half double crochet
sk - Skip
sl -Slip stitch
ch - Chain
mg -Magic ring
* * - Repeat
1- Make a magic ring. Ch1, make 16 sc inside mg.
2- Ch5, sk 1 st, 1 dc in sc, ch2, *sk 1 st, 1dc in sc, ch2* around, make a sl st in ch3 of 5 to close round.
3- Ch3, 2d, ch1, *3dc inside 2ch space, ch1* around, close with a sl st in first ch on ch3.
4- Ch5, 1sc on ch1 space, *1sc on ch1 space*, repeat around, close with a sl st in third chain of ch5.
5- Ch2, 3dc, 2tr, 3dc, 1hdc, sc on sc of round 4, c3, sc on ch5 space, ch3, sc on sc, *1hdc, 3dc, 2tr, 3dc, 1hdc in ch5 space, sc on sc of round 4, ch3, sc on next ch5 space, sc on sc* repeat around, close with a sl st on second ch of ch2,
6 - Ch3 (counts as one dc), *dc on each st, dc on tr, ch2, dc on tr, sk sc, 3dc on ch3 sp* around, close with a sl st in third chain of ch3.
7 - Ch3 (counts as one dc), *dc on each st, on ch2 space, make: (1dc, ch2, 1dc), dc on each st* cose with a sl st on third st of ch3.
And now you have your square! The best thing about motifs is that you can make everything with them - The possibilities are endless! :)
