Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. A.1 shows 1 square. A.2 and A.3 show how to assemble the squares.

The shoulder piece is made up of 6 squares which are worked together into a rectangle.

Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 8 mm / L/11 and Eskimo and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue by working A.1 – REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1 has been completed, cut and fasten the strand. Work 5 more squares.

The squares are first worked together widthwise and then lengthwise with 3 squares in width and 2 squares in height. Work the squares together as shown in illustration A.2 (there is more stitches on the square then on the illustration), A.3 show where the single crochets should be worked.

Work an edge around the whole rectangle as follows: 1 single crochet in the first stitch, * 3 chain stitches, skip 2 stitches, 1 single crochet in the next stitch *, repeat from *-* the whole round and finish with 3 chain stitches and 1 slip stitch in the single crochet at the beginning of the round. Fold the rectangle double lengthwise and sew together with just a couple of stitches in each corner (through both layers).


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= 4 chain stitches, form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch – see point on circle, the round starts and ends here
= 1 double crochet around chain stitch/chain-space
= 1 double crochet in stitch
= 1 chain stitch
= 1 single crochet around chain-space
= work 2 double crochets around chain stitch, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through on both of these double crochets, work 1 double crochet around the same chain stitch and pull the last yarn over through all 3 loops on the hook
= the round starts with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the start of the round
= work slip stitches to the middle of the chain-space and start the round with 1 chain stitch. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the start of the round.
= single crochet in double crochet/around chain-space

J'ai fait ce modèle. il est superbe. la laine est super douce et facile à crocheter. je me suis régalée. par contre, je n'ai pas fait la bordure car je trouve les bords des carrés jolis car ils sont légèrement ondulés.
