And here is my closing ceremony/DD naptime square.

Somersaults Mon 13-Aug-12 16:56:46

The pattern was adapted from this one I found through Ravelry. I can't remember exactly how I changed it but I'm pretty sure all I did was added an extra two rounds of (UK) trebles and one final dc round in blue. Possibly.

And thank you all blush

Somersaults, that's a really lovely flower square - I'd also like to steal the pattern from you if it's on the internet please smile

Somersaults - thats lovely!

Primrose123 Mon 13-Aug-12 14:08:02

Dances and Somersaults - lovely squares!

Wolfcub Mon 13-Aug-12 14:03:32

Somersaults - is that pattern available on the tinternet? It's lovely.

Love the grannysquare Dances, I'm still not entirely confident enough for all that colour changing malarkey.

Somersaults {ooooh}
beautiful

nickelcognito Mon 13-Aug-12 12:28:26

very good, Dances - and all your pesky ends sewn in too! grin

Here is my latest effort, and my favourite square that I've done yet.

Well done Dances smile

My first ever finished granny...

Primmy, that's gorgeous, and thank you for squaring it! I just dealt with one in the same pattern that wasn't, closest I've ever come to swearing on a blanket project blush

(I'm a very sweary person but it seems inappropriate on these somehow)

Somersaults Sun 12-Aug-12 19:47:13

I just copied and pasted the URL and it looks lovely smile

My latest square. It's a ripple pattern, and I crocheted in the gaps to make it more square. I need to check with Pistey to see if it's square enough!

square

It's the 'through one' that appears to be odd. Probably made up is strangely comforting! grin

nickelcognito Sun 12-Aug-12 15:44:52

"I'm sure that when my Nan taught me to crochet, many moons ago, the basic stitch she taught me was yo, through st, yo, back, yo, through 1, yo, through 2, yo, through 2"

i think she made that up...
wink

it sounds like a half double treble...

nickelcognito Sun 12-Aug-12 15:43:08

it gets even more complicated!!

in US usage, the treble is our double treble -
crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa101897.htm

and the US double treble is our triple treble (same link)
here it says in the blurb the double treble is the triple treble in UK

ahhh!!!! <<penny drops>>
your yo once then through and once is a half either treble or something else
i've jsut got to post this so i can go back to the previous page and check your description

nickelcognito Sun 12-Aug-12 15:37:28

let me think....

trible treble, yo twice, then through, then yo, through, loop off, yo, through, loop off until you've finished all the loops

double treble, is how your granny did it.

I might have to google now confused

Umami Sun 12-Aug-12 15:15:31

But I thought the double treble and treble treble had more than one yo right at the start?

Soooooo confused confused

<Resolves to learn how to knit instead>

the one your granny taught you is a double treble, and the extended treble is the triple treble (or treble treble)
