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 48

Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from the hook, ch 2, sc in next ch, *skip 2 chs, 2 dc in next, ch 2, sc in next* repeat from * to * across (36)

Row 2: ch 2, turn, skip 1st stitch, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) all in ch 2 space, *skip 3 stitches, (2 dc, ch 2, sc) all in ch 2 space* repeat from * to * across (36)

Row 3 – 23: repeat row 2


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

Because this stitch causes a bumpy edge, the first round will use dc, hdc, and sc.

Round 1 (rs): ch 2, turn, hdc in first stitch, *sc in ch 2, space, sc in next dc, dc in next dc, hdc in sc* repeat from * to * across ending with a dc, (hdc, sc) in same stitch, working down the side *hdc, dc, hdc, sc* repeat across making sure the dc are in the “valleys” and sc are at the “peaks”, ending with sc, 2 more sc in same stitch, sc across the bottom, 3 sc in the corner, working along the next side, hdc, sc, *hdc, dc, hdc, sc* repeat across, 2 sc in last stitch, join to first stitch with sl st

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.

See you next week for Part 9!

  1. I crocheted the tulip stitch with no problem, but I couldn’t figure out how to crochet Round 1 (rs).
    Please help me, do you have a video for Round 1 or more specific instructions?

    Thank you,

    1. Hi! Basically you are trying to even out the scalloped edge. So make sure the dc are in the low sections and the sc are in the higher sections.

  2. Am I missing something. My ends don’t seem even. Are we supposed to do tulip in the turning chain space also??

  3. Hello. I signed up late for the Stitch Sampler Scrapgahn. Just finished Part 9 and am wanting to work on Part 8 the Tulip Stitch. However, I can put my finger (mouse) not the corresponding You Tube.
    Can you help?
