On behalf of the Oombawka Design readers and myself, I would like to Thank Carolyn for sharing this really pretty square! I totally love it and think it will make a gorgeous addition to a blanket – or even make a beautiful blanket using only this square.

  1. Hi Carmen, At this time we do not have a video available of the stitches for the square. I will let Carolyn know of your request. Have a lovely weekend, Rhondda

  2. Good day. I really like your blog, but I can not understand the written explanations for this reason, I would appreciate if you could put the graphics and if possible, a video of the joints.
    Greetings,
    Carmen

  3. As the pattern uses Single Crochet, I would assume it would be American terms, and so the “tr” is for Triple (or Treble) and would be to Yarn Over twice before inserting the hook into the Stitch. This is how I’ve worked the pattern and it seems to match. Hope this solves it for you 🙂
