Hello dear reader, how are you? I hope you are doing very well! Today I come to leave here on our Step by Step Crochet Blog a beautiful, simple and complete step-by-step guide on how to make crochet squares:
Crochet hook of the appropriate size for the yarn you choose.
Crochet yarn of the desired color.
Step 1: Preparation
Start by choosing the color of yarn you want to use for your crochet square.
Wind the yarn into a ball to make it easier to work with.
Step 2: Make the Slip Knot
Start with a slip knot: hold the end of the thread between your thumb and middle finger, leaving about 10 cm of loose end.
With your other hand, wrap the yarn around your index and middle fingers, crossing the yarn at the back.
Pull the end of the thread from the bottom up through the circle formed by your fingers.
Now, you have a slip knot.
Step 3: First Current
Make a chain (corr) to start. This is done by wrapping the yarn around the crochet hook and pulling it through the slip knot.
This starting chain will serve as the base of your crochet square.
Step 4: The Low Point
For the first row, make single crochets (sc) in the initial chain.
Insert the crochet hook into the second link from the hook.
Wrap the yarn around the needle and pull it through the link. You will now have two loops on your hook.
Wrap the yarn around the hook again and pull it through the two loops on the hook.
Continue making single crochets in each link of the chain until the end.
Step 5: Turn the Work
When you reach the end of the first row, turn the work.
For the following rows, repeat the steps of making initial chains and single crochets until your square reaches the desired size.
Generally, you will want to make 3 initial chains to turn, then single crochet into the top loops of each stitch from the previous round.
Step 6: Finalization
Keep working until your square reaches the desired size.
To finish, cut the thread, leaving a tip of approximately 10 cm.
Pull the yarn through the last loop on the needle to secure the stitch.
Use a tapestry needle to hide any loose ends in your work.
And ready! Now you have a beautiful crochet square. Remember to practice to hone your skills and experiment with different colors and textures of yarn to create unique pieces. Have fun crocheting!
