UK Translation

  • Double crochet (dc) = Treble crochet

For this square I used Rico Cotton Creative Aran which is a 100% cotton non mercerised yarn. I chose this yarn as I love the feel of cotton, and it has a good selection of colours to choose from. This yarn does tend to split a little bit especially if you frog it a couple of times, so if this type of yarn is something you struggle to crochet with, I would choose a different brand.

I used the shade Turquoise (36) of Rico Cotton Aran yarn, which is 1 of the 4 different colours I used to create my own 50 stitches blanket. I also used a 4.5mm hook – I recommend using Clover Amour hooks. A cost effective hook that is comfortable in your hands thanks to their ergonomic design, so doesn’t make your hands tired when crocheting for long periods of time.

The Pattern

For this square you will need a 4.5mm hook

Start by making a foundation chain of 31

Row 1. In the 3rd chain from your hook make a sc (the turning chain counts as your first stitch of the row). Make a sc in each chain across – 30 stitches

Row 2. Turn and chain 1. Make a dc turning chain in the first stitch. Make a dc in the next stitch then *skip the next 2 stitches and then make a puff stitch (yarn over and insert your hook into the stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop 3 times until you have 7 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through 6 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops). 

Making your puff stitch

Chain 2 and make a puff stitch in the same stitch.

Making your 2nd Puff

Skip 2 stitches and make a dc in each of the next 2 stitches*

Repeat between *and*. You will only have 26 stitches in this row.

Row 3. Turn and chain 1. Make a dc turning chain in the first stitch, then make a dc in the next stitch. *In the chain space between the puff stitches in the row below make (puff stitch, chain 2, puff stitch) all in the same space. Make a dc in each of the dc stitches of the row below*. Repeat between *and* – 26 stitches

Rows 4 – 10. Repeat row 3

Row 11. Turn and chain 1. Make a single crochet in the first stitch then make a sc in the next stitch and in the top of the puff stitch. *Make 3 sc in the chain space and then make a sc in the top of the puff stitch and in each dc* repeat between *and* – 30 stitches

The Border

Now you need to add the single crochet border to your week 36 Harvest Stitch square before we join this one to last weeks square with the Interlocking border. We’re going to be making a round of single crochet around our square. I’ve chosen to do this in a contrasting colour for each of my squares, but you can use a complimenting or same colour as your square if you want. I chose to use Gentain (87) in Rico Cotton Creative Aran yarn for my border colour, the same colour that I also used for the Interlocking border.

Use a 4mm hook for the border stitches.

Make a sc in each stitch along the top and bottom edges. For the sides, make 3 sc in the sides of each dc row, make 2 sc in the side of row 11 and 1 sc in the side of row 1.

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)

You have now finished your Week 36 square of the 50 Stitches Crochet Along and can now cut off and weave in your ends before joining this piece to your previous pieces.

The Harvest Square

You can now add the interlocking border to join this weeks square to last weeks. You can see how to do this here both as a written guide and with a video to help you too.
