Yay for Granny Squares! I have a few Granny Square patterns floating somewhere but I decided to start with this one as a #1. I know I will be posting more in the future and there isn't always a name associated with the stitch patterns in the books I have.
Okay, enough of that. I chose this Granny Square stitch as pockets for my newest Crochet Cardigan design. I used a different Granny Square as a pocket once and I really loved it so I decided to do that again this time.
Here's the new pattern that is currently being tested.
Here's a look at my first cardigan using a granny square for pockets, Granny Square Cardigan
Yarn: Lion Brand, Heartland, Grand Canyon (0.7oz) for ONE square
Crochet Hook: US I/5.5mm
Stitch Marker (optional)
ch - Chain
st(s) - Stitch(es)
sl st(es) - Slip Stitch(es)
dc - Double Crochet
sp - Space
rep - Repeat
The size of this granny square is approx a 6x6 Square. Instead of chaining 3 in the beginning of the rounds, I used the chainless double crochet stitch. I show it once slowly in video.
