Daisy Charity Square 2

Well, I tried the square again with the next larger hook and would you believe it STILL was 7 1/2 inches when I was done? I was getting exasperated, but I went up ONE more hook size and gave it another try. When I was done, it was 8 1/2 inches! Well, the only thing I could do was take off the last round and do it over with a smaller hook, but it still came out to 8 1/4 inches. I am sending it that way...I hope its ok.


If you are interested in getting the pattern, you can ask for it by e-mail and it will be sent to you, provided you agree to make at least ONE square and send it in for charity. You can get info about the square HERE.


Crochet Away!

Update - 4/2/10 - You can no longer get the pattern by request. You now have to join the designer's Yahoo group and then you can access the pattern. A bit inconvenient but it is a nice pattern to have.

Pretty square--I too sent away and still have not made a good enough square to send--my first square came out to be only 6 1/2"--Gail helped with me with the pattern and I have a big picture of her's, so maybe I can see where I went wrong. .It is an ingenious design

Oops! You have reminded me that I have not made my obligatory square as well. What size hook did you end up using?

Mini, I ended up using a J hook for all but the last row...then I switched to a G. I started out with the G...then went to H...then went to J. I suppose if I had to make another one, I could try an I hook but I got a bit burned out on making 3 of them in one night :) If I send her anymore, I will try using JUST the I hook and see what happens. :)

Thanks Sandy! I was going to start one yesterday and can you believe I don't have any black or white yarn for the background? LOL I ordered some yesterday. When it gets here, I'll try the I hook and let you know how it goes.

OK, I finally made this square and used an H. It's close to 8", so I'll just block it to size ;)
