Remember the granny square bag crocheted by my daughter? Well... today I am sharing the tutorial on how she did the squares until how to joined it all. This post did not include on how I did the handle and the lining...maybe some other day I 'll share how I did mine..
Granny Square pattern
Yarns(4 colors of your choice)
st - stitch
sl st - slip stitch
ch - chain
dc - double crochet
NOTE - TO CHANGE COLOR
1. With the working yarn, make the last stitch until the end and pull up a loop of a new yarn.
Start with a magic ring.
Rd. 1 - Ch 3, 15 dc into center of the magic ring, join to third ch of beginning ch with a sl st
CHANGE COLOR(pink) at round 2, follow the step as at NOTE .
Rd. 2 -Ch 3, 3dc into the same st, *skip a st,4 dc in next st*;repeat from * to *. Join to third chain of beginning ch with a sl st(8 shells)
Rd. 3 - Ch 3, 3 dc into the same space. *skip next 3 st, 4 dc in next st, 4 dc into the next shell space*, repeat * to *. Join to third chain of beginning ch with a sl st(12 shells)
Rd. 4 - Ch 3, 3 dc into the same st, 4 dc into next space between shells, *skip next 3 st, 4 dc in next st, 4 dc in next st, skip next 3 st, 4dc into the next two space between shell, repeat * to *.
Join to third chain of beginning ch with a sl st.(16 shells)
Now you have the complete granny square.
Make 22 pieces of different combination of colors of your choice.
And this is how your bag will looks like once all the squares have joined together.
This is how the stitch looks like at the back
Another finished bag with handle but yet to be lined. This one is using same color tone.
