Stitch Together 2022 CAL: Square 3 Photo Tutorial

This post is for the 3rd square in the Stitch Together 2022 Stitch-A-Thon Blanket. If you’re unfamiliar with this CAL, head over to StitchTogether.com and find out all about how you can join us in 14 squares all year long.

Square 3 is designed by me, Amber from Divine Debris. For this square I wanted to have a little fun with the construction of this square, so that it is set apart from the other 2 squares for this CAL and because it’s a fun way to make a square. But when I started working it up I was worried people would be a touch confused in how to make it so I thought a photo tutorial would be the easiest way to explain things (also I don’t like to make videos, so that’s a no-go).
Below you’re going to find the square’s 8 sections broken up by color so you can see how you rotate the square to the right to work down row ends and in to a previous section (where applicable). And don’t forget to keep your ch sts even. If you pull these too tight you will definitely have a square that will be a bit off, if that makes sense. You could always block it to make it even, but you don’t want to rely on that. Just make sure you keep the tension loose. 🙂
If you have any questions, don’t forget to ask them in the Stitch Together Facebook Group (but let’s remember to keep it kind) and share those photos with the hashtag #Stitchathon2022 on Instagram.
And if you haven’t bought the pdf from We Crochet you can do that any time during the CAL and it will be updated with each new square!

Please note: I was provided Brava Worsted by We Crochet for the purposes of designing the my 2 squares for the Stitch Together Stitch-A-Thon Blanket, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I honestly can say I do enjoy this yarn, I used it on my so many times, and it is a fantastic worsted. If you purchase yarn through any of the links in this post, I will be compensated.

  1. Hi!
    I’m wondering for the repeating rows 2-3, are we meant to be doing our single crochet into the chain SPACE, or into the top two loops of the chain?
    Thank you 🙂

    1. I am wondering the same thing. Are we crocheting into the ch1 space, or in to the stitch itself? Because I read the pattern and was crocheting into the stitch, but then I thought maybe it was supposed to be like a moss stitch and use the ch1 space instead.

    1. No, there is not. But a good way to troubleshoot this pattern is to make sure you know if you’re looking at the right side or the wrong side by checking Row 1 and seeing if the front of the stitches is facing you. And the 90° turn is just a quarter turn to the right 🙂
      Hope that helps

      -Amber
