I am happy to report, I have completed 43 squares from my Project 101. 58 to go!!
Here’s the latest. No color explosion this time. I am all over the color map. Trying to mix things up and use some of my yarn just sitting.
Square 89 – Zig Zag
This looked interesting so thought I would try it. Yuck!! The square is all single crochet. Took forever. And placing the zig zags to zig zag just so also took forever. Even with a guide from the book, I still ended up redoing the zags about as often as the zigs. 😀
Will I make this square again? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Square 19 – BABY
Have you tried the new BABY yarn line from Lion Brand, Vanna’s Choice? Very pretty colors. This pink is called Pink Poodle.
Cute, petite. I would make it again.
In fact, I DID make it again. 😀
Looking for a quick and easy square to make? This is it. Kinda plain. Kinda dull. But it’s in the book. So had to make it. I added an extra single crochet row around the edges.
Square 17 – Love it!!
Love this flower!! It came out perfect. Will definitely make this square and flower again. There are 3 layers of petals. And pattern uses Back Post Single Crochet stitches. They are easy. Just have to determine which stitch they go around.
Square 32 – Another Uh, Oh Moment
Switched to earthtone colors for this one. Used cream, toffee and espresso dark brown. Espresso almost looks black.
Starts off with this flower.
Round 8. Uh, Oh!! Not again!! I am making a square. Not a CIRCLE!!
Still smarting from the flying saucer, I was hesitant to go past Round 8. BUT.. I rechecked all the steps and was pretty certain I hadn’t missed, messed up or skipped anything. Kept going.
I added an extra round of double crochet stitches before the final single crochet row.
Squares are being made from patterns in the book, 101 Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser.
Yarn used for the above squares:
- Lion Brand, Vanna’s Choice
