Instructions Nuts about Squares week 11

© Esther Dijkstra 2017. All rights reserved.

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

  • Color Crafter – 4.0mm  (3.5mm for round 3)
  • Stone Washed – 3.5mm (3mm for round 3)
  • Sunkissed – 3.0mm (2.5mm for round 3)

Work Rounds 1 to 14 of In Like a Lamb, Out Like a Lion according to the written pattern or video tutorial using the colorway for week 11 given above. Make 3 squares.

I used (2dc, 1tr, 2dc) in the last round of the pattern. The extra round, Round 15, is also based on the way I made Round 14. If you do a different stitch and corner, adapt Round 15 as needed.

At this point you have 37 stitches per side counting between the tr corner stitches. Work an extra round to bring the final stitch count to 44 stitches per side. Round 15 using color A, attach yarn with a standing hdc or ch2 in any corner st, 1hdc in same st, ch2, and 2hdc in same corner st. This is your new corner made. *skip the first st, 2hdc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 2hdc in next st, 1hdc in next 30 st, 2hdc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 2hdc in next st, (2hdc, ch2, 2hdc) in next corner st. 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]

Block all 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 11

© 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 (3.5mm voor toer 3)
  • Stone Washed – 3.5mm (3mm voor toer 3)
  • Sunkissed – 3.0mm (2.5mm voor toer 3)

Werk Toer 1 tot 14 volgens het geschreven patroon voor In Like a Lamb, Out Like a Lion of gebruik de Engelstalige instructievideo met de kleurverdeling voor week 11 zoals hierboven. Maak 3 vierkantjes.

Ik heb in Toer 14 een hoek gemaakt met (2st, 1dst, 2st). Toer 15 is gebaseerd op de manier waarop ik Toer 14 heb gemaakt. Indien je een andere hoeksteek hebt, pas Toer 15 aan waar nodig.

Je hebt 37 steken tussen de hoeksteken. Werk nu een extra toer om je vierkantjes heen om tot 44 steken per kant te komen. Voor Toer 15 hecht kleur A aan met een staand hst of 2l in enige hoeksteek, 1hst in dezelfde steek, 2l, 2hst in dezelfde steek. Dit is je nieuwe hoek. *sla volgende steek over, 2hst in volgende steek, 1hst in volgende steek, 2hst in volgende steek, 1hst in volgende 30 steken, 2hst in volgende steek, 1hst in volgende steek, 2hst in volgende steek, (2hst, 2l, 2hst) in volgende 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]

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 In Like a Lamb, Out Like a Lion which 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.

At this point you are almost done with all your squares, just 6 more to go and then all the squares are completed.

Esther

  1. The instructions for In Like A Lamb are appalling – I have had to sit in front of the computer watching the video and pausing each stitch for rounds 3, 4 and 5 as the written instructions are not worth the paper they are written on. Especially Round 5 – there are NO instructions for this round apart from saying “Nothing too confusing here. Fasten off at end of Round”. SO frustrating.

    I have so enjoyed all the other squares as the instructions were clear and easy to follow – this is my last set of 3 squares and I almost gave up and made more of some others already done. I just hope the rest of the rounds are better explained.
