Hi everyone!

The pattern for this  beautiful square can be found HERE

In case you can not read a chart, I’ve written it out for you below :).  I do not know the size hook they used or gauge as it’s all in a foreign language to me.

Enjoy!

I’ve included a picture of the chart above as well as a picture of the finished piece.

This is NOT my pattern, I’m simply translating the chart for those who can not read charts. There may be mistakes. If you find something you are unclear about or you think I may have gotten wrong, please email me at jans.crochet@gmail.com so I can correct it.

Terms:

Ch = chain

Dc = double crochet

Slst = slip stitch

Ea = each

Rnd = Round

Pop = popcorn stitch

Beg = beginning

Sp = space

Sk = skip

St(s) = stitch(es)

Dc2tog or dc3tog = double crochet together 2 or 3 stitches as designated

FO = Fasten Off

When you see these type of brackets [ ] it means work everything in between the brackets as one into the st designated.

I’m going to make an educated guess and say that they are using either a 2.5 mm or 2.75 mm hook (B or C) for this.  Also, the people from the area from which this pattern originated tend to crochet with a SUPER TIGHT tension.  Something to keep in mind, if you are wanting your project to look like the photo. 🙂

Here ya go!
