Day 149: Star

28 May

My Diamond square

Today’s square: Star
Size: 12 inch
Pattern By: I made it up
Hook: H
Yarn: mystery yarn Rose.

Notes: I just made this up as I went along. It’s so simple I don’t know if I should bother to write out the pattern for it. I started looking for filet type patterns that were worked in the round like a granny square and there aren’t many. I guess it’s usually worked back and forth. I’m pondering some simple patterns I could come up with for “in the round” squares.

    I love the idea of in-the-round filet patterns! The few you’ve done so far are pretty, and I prefer working in the round to doing rows.

      I totally agree about the working in rows thing. I’ve looked at some traditional filet patterns and they kind of boggle me. I have a few ideas for some patterns but I have to figure out how to note them so I can follow them. I guess graph paper is the way to go.

    I think a blanket made of alternating #148 and #149 squares would be something to see!!

      Oh, you might be right! They would look good together.

    This is such a nice square! I would definitely like to have a pattern for it if you are going to write one up.

      I never did get around to writing up a pattern for this. Maybe I will get on that now. I just winged it as I went along–you could probably work it just looking at the picture. It’s double crochet making a hole with a chain one in a staggered way. The corners are 2DC, CH2, 2DC most likely because that’s how I like to do them.
