99

Need I say more!! If you have been following me on my Project 101 journey, then you know EXACTLY what that means.

Here they are. The next five.


Square 49 – Watermelon

  • red, green, white & black
  • hook G
  • measures 6 1/2″

Fast to make. I like it. I didn’t follow the directions in the book for creating the “seeds.”  I just looped around 4 times for each seed. In and out. Easy-peasy!!

I will make more. In fact, I think I will make a table cloth for our family reunion’s picnic this coming July.

Square 68 –  Berry

  • cream, orange & brown
  • hook G
  • measures 7 1/2″
  • cluster and berry stitches

Love this square, with or without the edging. I am so sorry I am just now getting around to making it. The berry stitch would have been perfect when I was searching for edgings for other projects. I really like it and will for sure make it again.

Square 73 – Huge Flower

  • dusty blue, lime & cream
  • hook G
  • measures 7 1/2″

Whew!! Didn’t think I would EVER finish this square. It was very tiring. I took frequent breaks. Make 2 petals, take a 3 hr nap.  Look at all those yarn ends. Weaving in all of those took over an hour. To do it right. I am proud of how it turned out. Front AND back.

Square 75 – Perfect!!

  • pink & green
  • hook G
  • measures 4 1/2″
  • long triple crochet stitch

Isn’t this THE most perfect square!!  I know I have told you of other squares I love but I really do LOVE this one. You will be seeing more of it.

Square 97 – Cross

  • dusty blue, lime & cream
  • hook G
  • measures 7 3/4″
  • double triple crochet stitch

I guess this one could have been included in the Holiday post. A cross. Easter, maybe?  But I hadn’t started it then.

I am so glad I didn’t wait and make this the last square. I would have been on a downer instead of an upper. I have to put this one up there in the TOP FIVE HARDEST SQUARES.  Maybe even higher.  I had to read, reread & reread the directions in order to visualize what to do. Thank goodness for the color photo. It helped me a lot.

No question. I WON’T BE MAKING this one again!!

Well, that’s it for now.  I am hoping to finish the last 2 sometime today. But if not, for sure by tomorrow. I want to start on making up stuff with these squares and utilizing all the techniques I have learned.

2 to go!!


Patterns for these squares can be found in the book, 101 Crochet Squares, by Jean Leinhauser.

    I can see where that cross would seem complicated and the flower too just because of all the loose ends. But you are doing great!

      Thanks!! I took a break most of today. Don’t think I will get the other 2 finished today. Getting kind of sad thinking about the end.

    I totally agree with you on the #97 square – I don’t care for it at all. You did a fantastic job of working all the ends in on square ##73. The back is perfect. I really like that square but I also hate to finish off lots of ends in one square. I made a Granny Square crochetted afghan long ago and vowed to never do it again but I want to make up the squares like you have also to test my abilities and to learn new tchniques. So there will be many ends to finish off!!!!! Good work!
