Scrapghan Tips

· If you’re having trouble getting the sizing right, remember that it’s easier to adjust a square that’s too small than one that’s too big.

· If a square comes out too small you can add an additional round for the border, go up a hook size, and/or steam block and stretch the square to the size you want.

· The edges might curl. This can be fixed with some steam blocking. It won’t be noticeable after sewing.

· Each square has at least 2 rounds of border. For the last round of the border I used the same color for each square (the dark gray). This is the same color used for the sewing.

· The squares will be released in sewing order, starting with the bottom left. I left a long end for sewing on each of the squares. The long end is approximately twice the length of one side.

· Each square does not need the same number of stitches for the border.


Ch 37

Row 1 (rs): dc in 3rd ch from the hook and in each chain across (35 dc)

Row 2 (ws): ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across (35 sc)

Row 3 (rs): ch 2, turn, dc in 5 stitches, *ch 10, sl st to last dc made, dc in next 5* repeat from * to * across (35 dc, 6 ch 10 loops)

Row 4 (ws): ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across, making sure the ch 10 loops are facing the right side of the work (35 sc)

Row 5 – 26: repeat rows 3 & 4

Row 27 (rs): ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch across (35 dc)

Using your hook, chain the ch 10 loops together starting at the bottom. This process is included in the video tutorial.

Row 28 (ws): ch 1 turn, sc in 5 stitches, *grabbing the topmost ch 10 loop, sc in next stitch (closing in the ch 10 loop), sc in 4 stitches* repeat from * to * across (35 sc)

Row 29 (rs): ch 1, turn, dc in each stitch across (35 dc)


With the same color used for the square, work around the entire square

Round 1 (rs): ch 1, sc evenly along the side of the square, working 1 sc in the side of each row to the corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each stitch across to next corner, 3 sc in corner, sc along the side of the square, working 1 sc in the side of each row to the corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each stitch to last, 2 sc in last stitch, join to first sc

Change to border/joining color

Round 2 (rs): ch 1, *sc in each stitch across to corner, 3 sc in corner* repeat from * to * around, join to first sc with sl st

Fasten off. Leave a long end for sewing.

Weave in the other ends.
