Nuts about Squares CAL – Week 9

We suddenly skip summer and head right into autumn with Week 9 of Nuts about Squares CAL. No, just kidding! I would hate to miss summer. The square this week is called Fall Blossom and is designed by Aurora Suominen.



Yarn kits

There are three colorways available for Nuts about Squares

available as kits from Wool Warehouse, Caro’s Atelier or your favorite Scheepjes stockists. Thank you for supporting my work by buying your yarn through the links on my blog.

Color chart

The colors for each row are given in the Color Chart Week 9 for each of the three colorways or you can follow the general colorway in the table below.

Instructions Nuts about Squares week 9

Use the following hook sizes to make your squares or the hook size you need to get the correct size:

  • Color Crafter – 4.0mm
  • Stone Washed – 3.5mm
  • Sunkissed – 3.0mm

Work Rounds 1 to 15 according to the written pattern or video tutorial using the colorway for week 9 given above. Work 3 squares in total.

Note that in round 7 there is an ambiguous description of the stitches worked. I chose to work a dc2tog over the flowers. See the video for more details.

At this point you have 31 stitches per side counting between the center sc stitches. Work an extra round to bring the final stitch count to 44 stitches per side.Round 16 using color A, attach yarn with a standing hdc or ch2 in any sc-corner stitch, 1hdc in same stitch, ch2, and 2hdc in same corner stitch. This is your new corner made. * repeat (1hdc in next st, 2hdc in next st) 5 times, 1hdc in next 13 st, repeat (2hdc in next st, 1hdc in next st) 4 times, (2hdc, ch2, 2hdc) in next sc-corner stitch. Repeat from * 3 more times, omitting the last corner on the final repeat. Join to the first st with a ss. [44 hdc per side]

Repeat Round 16 for all 3 squares. Round 16 is also shown in THIS VIDEO. Block your squares to the following sizes:

  • Color Crafter – 25cm (10in)
  • Stone Washed – 22cm (9in)
  • Sunkissed – 20cm (7.5in)

Nederlandse Instructies (Dutch Instructions) voor Nuts about Squares week 9

© Esther Dijkstra 2017. Alle rechten voorbehouden.

Gebruik de volgende maat haaknaald om je vierkantjes te maken, of de maat haaknaald dat jij nodig hebt om de juiste maat vierkantje te krijgen:

  • Color Crafter – 4.0mm
  • Stone Washed – 3.5mm
  • Sunkissed – 3.0mm

Werk Toer 1 tot 15 volgens het geschreven patroon of gebruik de Engelstalige instructievideo met de kleurverdeling voor week 9 zoals hierboven. Maak in totaal 3 vierkantjes.

Er is in Toer 7 onduidelijkheid over de steken in het oorspronkelijke patroon. Ik heb ervoor gekozen om een 2stokjes-samengehaakt te maken. Zie de video voor meer details.

Je hebt 31 steken aan het eind van Toer 15 tussen de vasten hoeksteken. Werk nu een extra toer om je vierkantjes heen om tot 44 steken per kant te komen. Voor Toer 16 hecht kleur A aan met een staand hst of 2l in enige v-hoeksteek, 1hst in dezelfde steek, 2l, 2hst in dezelfde 2l-hoek. Dit is je nieuwe hoek. * herhaal (1hst in volgende steek, 2hst in volgende steek) 5 keer, 1hst in volgende 13 steken, herhaal (2hst in volgede steek, 1hst in volgende steek) 4 keer, (2hst, 2l, 2hst) in volgende v-hoeksteek. Herhaal vanaf * nog 3 keer waarbij je de hoek overslaat bij de laatste herhaling. Sluit met 1hv op de eerste steek en hecht af. [44 hst per kant]

Herhaal Toer 16 voor alle vierkantjes. Ik laat Toer 16 ook zien in deze Engelstalige instructievideo. Span je vierkantjes op op de volgende maten:

  • Color Crafter – 25cm
  • Stone Washed – 22cm
  • Sunkissed – 20cm

Video tutorials

If you appreciate a visual support to the pattern, you can follow the video for Fall Blossom. This video shows you how to make the original square.

After you have completed the original pattern you need to add an extra round using Color A to bring your total stitch count to 44 stitches. I also show you how to do this in a short video.

Share your squares

Fall Blossom has a few ticky bits, but I hope you enjoyed making the 3 squares for this week. If you would like to share your work you can do so in the Official CCC Social Group on Facebook, share it on my Facebook page or tag me in your post on Instagram. If you use the hastag #NutsAboutSquares it will help me find it.

I hope to see all of you next week for part 10 of Nuts about Squares CAL.

With love,
