Crochet Square 10 (Never Give Up!!)

OK, this Square almost didn’t get made. It seemed easy enough in the photo in the pattern book but everyone knows looks can be deceiving.

I first tried several days ago. And then again a day or two later. I still could not figure out what the instructions were telling me to do.

Finally got it on the 3rd try. So, I guess it is true when people say the 3rd time is a charm. See the first two messes in this next photo? My 1st and 2nd attempts. Making no sense whatsoever. No wonder I couldn’t get going.

I do like this stitch, even after all the problems I had learning it. It is one of those projects you can work on while waiting in the doctor’s office. Once you get the row started, you just keep going. Even changing colors was easy.

No pulling and tugging, not hard on the hands. My kind of stitch. But do be warned, if you make this, some shells appear to be on the wrong side. It may look wrong but that is how the pattern works up. Worked in a triangle, like a fan. In fact, the first few rows would make a cute fan. Maybe dangling from a key chain. This square is perfect for using up your odd lengths of left-over yarn.

I still have a bit of work to do. I want to clean up the edges by adding a couple rows of single crochet stitches. I may add this cute flower to the top or center. What do you think?
