  1. I found your YouTube tutorial on this last night and I attempted my first one. So excited. Unfortunately as a beginner, I didn't understand that I needed to do the DC into the loops right above the stich. Instead I stiched them into the spaces between the DC. So my second row had 6 stiches, third 10, etc. At any rate, now I've got it figured out and will try again. Long Story Short... (right)... thanks for the video clips. I learn so much better that way than reading instructions. :-)

  2. eden,
    Some people like to crochet between the stitches as you described. What you did was a variation. With crochet, you will come across many variations of stitches and pattern stitch techniques. It is all a matter of what you like and how you want your square to look.

  3. Teresa I just wanted to say thank you for the many patterns and instructional YouTube vids. I have sent many people to you for guidance in that realm and have many of your patterns linked at my forum HappyHooker A Crochet Paradise on yuku.
    Thanks again, for everything!!

  5. Hi, I was just wondering if you can make it bigger to a 12x12 square. Do I just add more rows?

  6. hi Teresa, just did this one for a small side bag. I also kept your link on my blog and mentioned that I followed your pattern, (if you won't mind). I only follow most of your patterns as I found yours very easy. I started my crocheting two months ago and learned easily from your instructions. Thanks a ton for your wonderful videos.

  7. Teresa,
    Your written instructions of this pattern are confusing. You've written that we should work the (shell, DC in 3 stitches) 7 times in round three. I think you meant to say (shell, DC in next 7 stitches) 3 times. The same goes for rounds 4 & 5...
    Thanks,
    Tiara

    1. Yes! I had that issue too, as when I get confused I follow the patterns LITERALLY!
      Excellent pattern, thus far, but consider editing that minor overlook.

  8. How do I end the square? I made a wash cloth, but how do I keep it from coming undone? Thanks for your video... it was the best one yet! And I've watched tons of em!

  9. At first I couldn't figure out where to put the first DC after the 2DC CH2 2DC at the corner and then realize that the last DC was covering the stitch I was supposed to use. If anyone has that problem just move the last DC you made coming out of the corner over to the right a bit and you should see the stitch you need to go into. I'm very new to crochet and I've got this pattern memorized now after 3 squares. Thanks for the help.

  10. Hi, i am new to crocheting too but i am wondering if your written pattern is correct as after the first corner you say 1 DC into each of the next 3DC for every row. Surely that's only in the first row???

  11. I think there is an error in Round 3...

    Round 3: CH 3, 1 DC in same CH space. 1 DC in ea of the next 7 DC, *2 DC, CH 2, 2 DC in the next CH 2 SP. 1 DC in ea of the next 3 DC, Complete 7 times total from *, 2 DC in beginning CH, CH 1, SC in beginning chain to join.

    Is this how it is suppose to be written?...

    Round 3: CH 3, 1 DC in same CH space. 1 DC in ea of the next 7 DC, *2 DC, CH 2, 2 DC in the next CH 2 SP. 1 DC in ea of the next 7 DC, Complete 3 times total from *, 2 DC in beginning CH, CH 1, SC in beginning chain to join.

    Thank you for a great pattern.
