Snowburst Square Pattern

Standard

Would you like to make your own? Here it is:

Using a 9mm hook and worsted weight acrylic yarn…

Chain(ch) 4: this counts as your first dc.

DC (double crochet), ch 1 eleven times in the ch farthest from the hook. Join with a slip stitch (sl st) at the top of the first ch 4. (12 dc around)
image

Ch-2, dc for first cluster in ch-1 sp of previous round. 2-dc cluster, ch-1 around. Join. * Note: you could also just use 2dc in each space instead of a 2-dc cluster. (12 clusters)

To make a 2-dc cluster: yarn over (yo), insert hook and pull up a loop, yo and pull through two loops on hook, repeat in same ch-1 space a second time. Yo and pull through three loops on hook, one 2-dc cluster made.

Slip stitch to ch-1 sp. Ch 3, 2 dc in ch-1sp for first 3-dc. Ch-1, 3 dc in each sp around. Join. (12 3-dc around)
image

Now for the final round! We are going to put 2 clusters in each ch-1 sp twice for the side, then a 3-triple, ch 5, 3-triple in each corner…here we go:

Now about the joining…it is join-as-you-go, and since we have a baby in the house this week, THAT is not a tutorial I will be making anytime soon. 🙂 I can tell you that you join the ch2 or ch4 of the corner ch5 for the 2nd and 3rd square, and both of those for the 4th. Hope that helps!

I did find two absolutely gorgeous patterns with lovely joins I will share with you now.

Enjoy! Aren’t they gorgeous? Extra time to crochet is the silver lining to this chilly weather. Have a lovely day! Stay warm! ♡
