13 of 99

Today’s Square: 13 of 99
Size: 5.5 inch
Pattern By: Joan Beebe
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic. RH Love Seafoam; mystery yarn baby blue, periwinkle
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: Pattern comes out at 5 inches as written. I changed round 6 to DC all around and DC, CH2, DC in the corners. This made it 5.5 inches. This needs a lot of counting. I managed to get my count off by one stitch on one side so I fudged a little. This is from the 99 Granny Squares to Crochet book.

Pattern By: Janie Herrin
Hook: H
Yarn: RHSS yellow, RH Love Seafoam; mystery yarns melon, blue, periwinkle.

Notes: I left off round 1l to keep it at 9 inches. In round 8 it called for Long Single Crochet stitches but I just wasn’t feeling the look of them, so I used DC instead. From the book 50 Fabulous Squares to Crochet.

New Year’s Eve Square

New Years Eve

Today’s Square: New Year’s Eve
Size: 11 inch
Pattern By: Sherry Welch
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RH Soft Seafoam, mystery yarn sparkly blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This was the December filler square in the 2013BAMCAL on Ravelry. Fairly simple to make, though I think the last round of CH5 spaces could be changed to CH4 and the corner CH10 changed to CH9 or 8. I tend to make smaller squares so these big ones seem like giants when I finish them.

Pattern By: Donna Mason-Svara
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS Emerald, mystery yarn burgundy.

Notes: This is a quick and easy little square. I added a round of SC to make it 6 inches. My picture color is off–red always does that to me. This is the December 6 inch square in the 2013 BAMCAL on Ravelry.

Small Winter Burst

Small Winter Burst

Today’s Square: Small Winter Burst
Size: 6 inch
Pattern By: Aurora Suominen
Hook: H
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic mystery yarn sparkly blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: I did this pattern two years ago for a previous BAMCAL about 2 years ago. It so happens that first square was the first time I’d ever done front post stitches! Amazing what a difference 2 years makes. On this version I added a squaring up round: (2DC, CH2, 2DC) in the corners, and 1DC, 4HC, 8SC, 4HC, 1DC between the corners. November 6 inch square in the 2013 BAMCAL.

Starburst New Millenium

Starburst New MilleniumToday’s Square: Starburst New Millenium
Size: 10 inch
Pattern By: Margaret MacInnis
Hook: H
Yarn: RHSS buff fleck, worsted weight mystery yarn in cream, blue, green tweed.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: This pattern is kind of cool looking but much too fiddly for my taste. Once you’ve joined up the four center motifs, then you have to do a lot of sewing: the center of the petals and then tacking the petals down. I didn’t tack the petals down. By the time I finished the square I was over the whole sewing thing. I left off the last round to keep it at ten inches. This is the November filler square in the 2013 BAMCAL group on Ravelry.
