Granny Square Crochet Along Revisited (Week Eight)

You know those weeks when you just don't want to do anything? Well I had one of those. Although I did manage to get some more of my Smaug done. I can't wait to show you all the finished dragon.

As a result of a very non productive week I failed to organize a sponsor for this week of the crochet along, oops. So this week I am going to sponsor it again. I think this is still pretty exciting. If you post your squares on my Facebook page wall before 8 am Tuesday morning NZST (22/7/2014) you will go in the draw to win an eBook of your choice.

I also want to say a big congratulations to Helen Cole for being last weeks winner. You have won a pattern of your choice from The Country Hooker Designs Ravelry store. Have fun choosing. I know I would have trouble.

Now for this weeks patterns.

22nd Granny Square

Looking at the picture of the flower the first round of the pattern is wrong and should be:

Ch 3, dc into the circle, ch 2 * 2 dc, ch 2* Repeat 6 more times for a total of 8 sets. Join to top of ch 3 with a sl st and finish off.

Make a basic 8 inch granny square then sew flower into the middle. Pattern for the square can be found here 

23rd Granny Square

I did 6 rounds and the border as follows:

Round 7: Join yarn in any stitch, Ch 6 (counts as first dbtr and ch 1) dbtr in same stitch. *tr in next 2 st, dc in next 2 st, hdc in next 2 st, sc in next 5, hdc in next 2, dc in next 2, tr in next 2. [dbtr, ch 1, dbtr] in next st.* Repeat 3 more times leaving out between the [] in the last round. Join to 5th ch of ch 6.

Round 8: *(dc, ch 2, dc) in ch 1 sp, dc in each st till you reach next ch 1 sp* repeat 3 more times and join to top of first dc with a sl st.

24th Granny Square

To get 8 inches instead of doing sc in round 5 I used dc and continued until piece measured 8 inches.

If you need any help with any of these patterns please feel free to post in my group.
