Materials:

  • Yarn: Worsted weight yarn in any color
  • Crochet hook: US size H/8 (5.00mm)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Start with a slip knot: Make a loop with the yarn, insert the hook through the loop, and pull the yarn through the loop to create a slip knot.
  2. Chain 4: Make 4 chain stitches. This will serve as the starting chain for your square.
  3. Slip stitch to form a ring: Insert the hook into the first chain made (the one closest to the slip knot) and make a slip stitch to form a ring.
  4. Chain 3: This chain will count as your first double crochet (dc) in the next step.
  5. Make 2 double crochets (2 dc) into the ring: Yarn over, insert the hook into the ring, yarn over again, pull up a loop (3 loops on the hook), yarn over, pull through the first 2 loops (2 loops remaining on the hook), yarn over, pull through the last 2 loops. Repeat this process once more, creating a total of 2 double crochets into the ring.

  1. Chain 2: This chain will serve as the corner space of your square.
  2. Make 3 double crochets (3 dc) into the ring: This will create one side of your square. Follow the same process as in step 5 to make 3 double crochets into the ring.
  3. Chain 2: This is another corner space.
  4. Make 3 double crochets (3 dc) into the ring.
  5. Chain 2: Corner space.
  6. Make 3 double crochets (3 dc) into the ring.
  7. Chain 2: Corner space.
  8. Join with a slip stitch: Insert your hook into the top of the initial chain 3 (the one you made in step 4), yarn over, and pull through the chain and the loop on your hook to create a slip stitch.
  9. Fasten off and weave in the ends: Cut the yarn, leaving a tail, and pull it through the loop on your hook. Use a yarn needle to weave in the loose ends.
