As most of today has been spent recovering from the excesses of last night I thought I should start with something simple - a traditional granny square.
Chain 5, join to form a ring.
Chain 5 (this is the final treble crochet of the round and two chains in a corner), * 3 treble crochets, 2 chains, repeat from * twice more, 2 treble crochets. Join to the initial chain of 5 with a slip stitch. You should now have your square shape comprising four sets of treble crochets separated by chains at the corners.
Chain 5, * 3 treble crochets, chain 1, 3 treble crochets, chain 2, repeat from * twice more, 3 treble crochets, chain 1, 2 treble crochets. Join to the initial chain of 5 with a slip stitch.
Repeat the round as many times as you like (I did 6 rounds in total), each round will include 1 more set of 3 treble crochets, chain 1.........
One thing I always find annoying when looking at instructions is when they don't state if it is British or American - these are British treble crochets!
The finished square.
