honestly i must tell you that these squares are actually plan b. i just can not work well with thick cotton yarn (double knit), i normally work with thinner yarn suitable for hook size 2.5 – 3 mm.
on to plan b.
alas, plan b. went also not quite right, my thumbs and index fingers were so painful that i could not make a fourth one. the day after my thumbs were a bit swollen, so i’m aiming not to work with thick cotton yarn anymore. it is obvious that i am doing something wrong, besides the fact that my hands are not so strong anymore.
these are the patterns i used for the squares,
it are all diagrams/charts instead of written patterns:
kukka bedspread by pierrot (gosyo co)
2728-omo57 granny square blanket by pierrot (gosyo co)
my plan a. squares are from the patterns for these dresses:
pierrot (gosyo co., ltd)
- but there is an easier way because on ravelry you can browse their patterns via this link: http://www.ravelry.com/designers/pierrot-gosyo-co-ltd?page=1
- these patterns are for free and all in diagram but partly the collection of patterns is available in english too via this direct link:
i’m not very familiar with that page but i know you can find there also video lessons.
more information about working with japanese patterns can be found via these links:
i hope you can use this information!
wish you lots of fun with crocheting the patterns!
