New Squares

Very excited about this new crochet square (so excited obviously that I couldn't wait to finish it!). Such a simple design but so effective I think. It's just a row of triple trebles then three rows of double over and over.

They didn't have instructions for the triple treble in the 101 Crochet Stitches box so I improvised on the Double Treble instructions. Every time it said 'twice' I made it a 'thrice'... and it seemed to work :)

It's actually called a Track Stitch. Here's the pattern if you'd like to have a go...

I've also completed some more of the Diagonal Shell patterned squares.
It'll be time to get some more wool soon!

Do you have a public holiday today too? What are you up to this fine sunny day? :)

I really need to learn the names of the crochet stitches I can do so i can then follow a pattern.

The triple treble looks brilliant! Imagine it in a cream or white cotton as a 'net' curtain for a window - mmm, dreamy!
