Project Linus Crochet Squares

Image
I have been on a square-a-thon, busy making square video tutorials and 6" squares. Some of these squares will become a video tutorial and some already are. This weekend I made 6" squares to send to the Project Linus Chapter of Dallas Texas this weekend. I had a lot of fun making the squares and making up something different. They look kind of crooked in the picture. They will shape up, fit together and hopefully comfort someone in need. This is the web address for Project Linus if you would like to find a chapter in your local area.

Letters and Numbers - Crochet Tip 41

There are several ways to get letters and numbers on a crochet piece.
Cross Stitch - Following a diagram to shape your number or letterEmbroidery Stitches - The satin stitch can be used to shape a letter or number and outlined with a running stitch or back stitch.
Crochet Chain - Crochet a length of chain. Sew the chain on to your crochet piece in the shape of the letter. For thicker letters and numbers, use a row of single crochet or the foundation crochet stitches.
Chart - Changing colors as you crochet across your row following a diagram. This technique is limited to the basic single, half or double crochet stitches.
