3 more crochet squares finished from the book, 101 Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser.
Square 5 – Trumpet
I have to confess. I didn’t even know what a trumpet was. Until making this square. It is supposed to stick up high, I guess, but I like it better pushed down.
Didn’t care much for how the flower petals were made though. Looked a mess as I was making it. Kept getting confused into which stitch to stick the hook.
And of course, I made changes. I added an extra round of double crochet stitches to the square. The flower takes up a lot of the square space so I wanted it bigger. It looks so much better.
Also added a “center” to the trumpet. Was too plain. I love this square!! I will probably use pattern to make more squares but not the flower or trumpet.
Square 6 – Butterfly
How cute is this!!
Another square that I like.
The only change I made was to the butterfly. I added a finishing row of single crochet stitches along the top. The butterfly is kind of huge. If I make it again, I’ll use a smaller hook size.
Square 9 – My Favorite
So far, this square is now my New Favorite. It is petite, easy to make even with all the color changes. I LOVE IT!! And will definitely make something from it. With G hook, it makes up as 4″.
