I promised to make a tutorial on GSQ, and here it is. – I decided to post pictures instead of a video, because I believe, it’s easier to learn from pictures than from fast video tuts.
Ok, let’s start.
First, you need to do a slipknot. If you don’t know how or (like me ^^) don’t like it, just do a regular knot. It works well.
Then, do 4 singlecrochets!
Chain last and first SC together:
You will then get a ring:
If you want, just make the ring wider with your finger.
Chain 2. (make 2 SC)
Then, do 3 double-crochets into your ring:
(Yarn over the hook,
into the ring
again yarn over the hook
through the ring. Now, you have 3 chains on your hook!
Now pull the yarn through 2, and then again
through the last remaining 2 loops.
Repeat three times.
Then, do 2 singlecrochets! (It’s important, so don’t forget!)
Then again, 3 doublecrochets!
And 2 singlecrochets. Then again 3 DC and 2 SC. And then, 2 (!!!!!!!!!!!!) doublecrochets.
After you have done 2 doublecrochets, add your loop to the second chain of the first 2 singlecrochets of this round you had done.
You might want to do a colourchange, but if you are a beginner, just use one colour, it’s easier!
If you do a colourchange, chain 2 double-yarned SC:
Then, chain 2 SC.
If you use one colour, chain 4 at once.
Again, 3 doublecrochets into the hole. (there will be a hole from the last round)
After you have done 3 DCs, do 2 singlecrochets again.
Then, 3 doublecrochets into the next “hole” followed by 2 singlecrochets. And now, ATTENTION (!) – remember you want your piece to become a SQUARE so you need to add the next 3 doublecrochets into the SAME hole.
This is what it looks like then.
2 Singlecrochets follow.
And now you know, what follows 3 DC in the next “hole”, then 2 SC and 3 DC into the same hole followed by 2 SC….
Add 2 DC to the last hole and then chain into the second loop from your first stitch like you’ve done on the last round.
Have you been afraid to never make it to a “square” shape?! HA, now you see, it works!
You might now wanna do a colourchange (again) or use the same colour you’ve used before and chain 4, then add 3 DC, 2 SC…. and again and again. It could go on like foreveeeeeeer! But keep in mind that you only need to do 3 DC and 2 SC twice on the edges
I hope, this could help you out, I tried to keep it as easy as possible. Oh, and I noticed how much I love the colours I used <3 So pretty.
If you succeed, SHOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
