Sunflower Granny Square Blanket Free Crochet Patterns
In this article you will learn about the extended single crochet and how to use it to whip a lovely crochet rug for yourself or your family and friends. The dish pattern is set to one size, but you can increase or decrease it to any size you want in a simple multiple of two.
The extended single crochet is often shortened to ESC. Crochet stitch is basically an extension of the individual crochet and results in a nice fabric. I find that it is a little softer than a regular single crochet, which makes it great when you want something with draping and elegance.
To make the extended single crochet (esc): Insert the hook into the specified stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through one loop, yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook.
To make this crochet rug, you need a cotton weight cotton yarn and a H / 8-5.00mm crochet onion.
The finished size of this dish measures 7 x 7.25 inches.
For starters, chain 22,
Row 1: (esc, chain 1) in 2nd chain from hook, * skip next chain, (esc, chain 1) in next chain; repeat from * above. (11 esc) Turn.
Row 2: (Esc, ch. 1) in first esc and into each esc across. (11 esc). Trip.
Rows 3-16: Same as row 2. Do not attach yet, but continue with the edges below.
For the edges, you now start working in a round where you walk around the dishes.
Round 1: Chain 1 and single crochet around 19 stitches evenly along each side and 3 stitches into each corner. (88 masks)
Round 2: Chain 1, (esc, chain 1) in the same stitch as joining, release stitch in next stitch, * (esc, chain 1) in next stitch, set stitch in next stitch; repeat from * around; join a slip stitch in the first esc. Attach and weave at the ends.
You can increase this dish size by increasing your starting chains in any multiple of two. And that means you can easily crochet a baby blanket or full-size blanket for the bed or living room. If you are making rugs, you may also want to switch to an acrylic yarn as it is cheaper.
You can also start with fewer chains and make an elegant scarf. This pattern is also easy to crochet in the round, making it great for bags, hats, cones, leg warmers or anything like that.
This pattern also looks great in stripes if you change the colors in each row or round. You are the artist and the possibilities are endless.
So I hope you enjoyed this free crochet pattern.
