2011′s First Free Crochet Pattern

by Dawne on January 9, 2011

2011 is starting with a bang for KasCare and knit-a-square! What better way to get going in January than with a Featured Member Pattern?

With special thanks to Mary Lokken, a Square Circle Forum member, we bring you the Chain Stitch Square*.

The Chain Stitch Square by Mary Lokken

This free, printable crochet pattern is perfect for stash busting.  Not only will you be helping to keep an orphan warm you’ll have more space for new yarn this year!

What I like about this pattern is the sheer versatility; let your inner artist come out and play!  You can adjust the colours and textures to suit your mood.  As you can see from the photo above the smallest variation changes the look of the square.

I think this is a great pattern for knitters who want to dabble in crochet. Give it a try!  If you have a question pop over to the Square Circle Forum. Mary or some other helpful knit-a-square member will be able to help you out.

Do be warned: I have heard from several people this pattern is addictive!

*This printable pattern is a .pdf.  You will need Adobe Reader (a free program) to open, save and/or print it.

The pattern is written with American crochet instructions.  A single crochet in American terms is a double crochet in British terms.

It’s a very effective pattern for making good use of bits and bobs of yarn. Love the look the the pom-pom yarn square. :-)

Thank-you for the pattern but are these American or British crochet instructions?
There is a difference!
What Americans call single crochet we Brits. call double crochet etc..
This point needs to be made note of on this website.

Thanks for raising the question. I will ask and report back!

The pattern is written with American crochet instructions.
