Video tutorials

In the videos for this week I show you how to make the border. If you happen to have more/less rows of stitches than the pattern states, don’t worry about it. In the video I show you how to identify your rows and then just take it from there. In the description of the videos you can find the time stamps to each row so that you can jump ahead if you want to. The videos are available in English and Dutch, with left and right handed versions in both languages. Please note that in the English video I use UK crochet terms.


Yarn and kits for Hygge CAL

If you are only just joining in, there are 5 colorway kits to choose from. You can choose between the Rainbow, Jewel, PastelDanish Mermaid and Girls Night In colorways. The kits contain 10 balls of Stone Washed yarn, 11 balls of Catona yarn and extra goodies to get you in the Hygge mindset. Goodies include a button, a charm, a stitch marker, a yarn needle and 2 wooden ice crystals. The kits are available from Wool Warehouse, Deramores, or your Scheepjes stockist.


Next week I will show you my completed Hygge wrap.

With love,

Esther

Nuts about Squares CAL – week 6

We have arrived at the half-way mark with our squares for Nuts about Squares CAL. I know many of you are a bit behind with the squares, but don’t worry about it. This is not a race and it is not about who finished first. It is about making something beautiful and enjoying the process of doing so. This week we are definitely making something beautiful, we are making Bavarian Beauty designed by Heather Gibbs from Keep Calm and Crochet on UK.

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 (Dit is je ‘standaard’ maat dat je ook voor week 1 hebt gebruikt):

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

Werk Toer 1 tot 10 volgens het geschreven patroon of gebruik de Engelstalige instructie video met de kleurverdeling voor week 6 zoals hierboven. Maak in totaal 3 vierkantjes.

Je hebt 43 steken aan het eind van Toer 10. Werk nu een extra toer om je vierkantjes heen om tot 44 steken per kant te komen. Voor Toer 11 hecht kleur A aan met een staand hst of 2l in enige 2l-hoek, 2l, 1hst in dezelfde 2l-hoek. Dit is je nieuwe hoek. *Sla de eerste steek over, 1hst in ieder van de volgende 42 steken, (1hst, 2l, 1hst) in volgende 2l-ruimte. 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 11 voor alle vierkantjes. Ik laat Toer 11 ook zien in deze Engelstalige instructievideo. Span je vierkantjes op op de volgende maaten:

If you appreciate a visual support to the pattern, you can follow the video for Bavarian Beauty. 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.

Nuts about Squares CAL – Week 5

This week is holiday week for me so I have had time to take it just a little slower than usual. Have you had a moment of rest lately? Rest is important for our minds, bodies and souls. After that philosophical note, let me get back to what you are here for, part 5 of Nuts about Squares CAL. This week a fun floral square designed by Melissa Green. An important note for this week, be sure to go up a hook size.

BELANGRIJK. Er was een klein foutje in de Nederlandse vertaling ingeslopen bij Toer 11 en Toer 13. Je moet een Rdst/v haken en niet een Rst/v. Er is een update beschikbaar op Ravelry van het patroon met de correctie.

The colors for each row are given in the Color Chart Week 5 for each of the three colorways or you can follow the general colorway in the table below.




Instructions Nuts about Squares week 5

Use the following hook sizes to make your squares or the hook size you need to get the correct size (Note that this is 0.5mm larger than what you have used up till now):

  • Color Crafter – 4.5mm
  • Stone Washed – 4.0mm
  • Sunkissed – 3.5mm

Update: When testing my testers and I found that Rachel turned out smaller than our other squares and we needed to go up a hook size to get all the squares the same size. However, I notice that some of your squares turn out too large if you go up a hook size. If you suspect that your tension is such that you may end up with a too large square, then don’t go up a hook size. If your square then does happen to be smaller, make Round 15 with dc or tr instead of hdc.

Work Rounds 1 to 14 according to the written pattern or video tutorial using the colorway for week 5 given above. Work 3 squares in total.

A small tip for round 9: I replaced the tr with a bptr to catch the 3rd dc of the flower petals along the straight edge. This way the petals are secured to the square. The flower petals in the corners remain unconnected.  In the video I show how to do this.

I believe there is an small error in the pattern for the stitch count of round 14. I had 41 stitches at the end of round 14. 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 the hdc making the corner from Round 14, 1hdc in same stitch, ch2, and 2hdc in same stitch. This is your new corner made. *Skip first st, 1hdc on each of the next 40 st, (2hdc, ch2, 2hdc) in next corner-hdc. 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 15 for all 3 squares. Round 15 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)

My squares bobbled quite a bit, so I really recommend blocking this square.


Nederlandse Instructies (Dutch Instructions) voor Nuts about Squares week 5

© 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 (LET OP: Dit is 0.5mm groter dan dat je tot nu toe gebruikt hebt):

  • Color Crafter – 4.5mm
  • Stone Washed – 4.0mm
  • Sunkissed – 3.5mm

Update: Tijdens het testen hebben mijn testers en ik gezien dat Rachel kleiner uitvalt en daarom hebben we een haaknaald groter gebruikt om hem dezelfde maat te krijgen als de vorige vierkantjes. Echter, ik zie dat bij sommige het vierkantje juist groter uitvalt als ze een haaknaald groter gebruiken. Mocht je verwachten dat je vierkantje groter zal uitvallen omdat je bijvoorbeeld los haakt, ga dan niet naar een grotere haaknaald. Mocht hij dan alsnog te klein uitvallen, maak de steken in Toer 15 langer, dus een st/dst.

Werk Toer 1 tot 14 volgens het geschreven patroon of gebruik de Engelstalige instructie video met de kleurverdeling voor week 5 zoals hierboven. Maak in totaal 3 vierkantjes.

Een kleine tip voor Toer 9: vervang het dst met een RdstA en vang het 3e stokje van de bloembladjes waardoor je de blaadjes vastzet aan je werk. In de video laat ik zien hoe ik dit doe.

Er is een kleine fout in de steektelling van het patroon, ik heb 41 steken aan het eind van Toer 14. 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 hst-hoeksteek, 1hst in dezelfde hoeksteek, 2l, 2hst in dezelfde hoeksteek. Dit is je nieuwe hoek. *Sla de eerste steek over, 1hst in ieder van de volgende 40 steken, (2hst, 2l, 2hst) in volgende hst-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 15 voor alle vierkantjes. Ik laat Toer 15 ook zien in deze Engelstalige instructievideo. Span je vierkantjes op op de volgende maaten:

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

Mijn vierkantjes waren nogal flink aan het bobbelen en opspannen is echt nodig.



Video tutorials

If you appreciate a visual support to the pattern, you can follow the video for Rachel. 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

When you have completed your 3 squares and have added the extra row you are all done for this week. WOW! 15 squares already!! My stack of squares is a lovely stack indeed. 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 6 of Nuts about Squares CAL.

With love,

Esther
