Kismet 12″ Square

{ 0 comments }

Kismet 12 inch Crochet Granny Square by Jessie At Home

Kismet Square
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This 12” crochet square utilizes the Jacob’s Ladder stitch in 2 directions to add texture and interest to the design. It is built off of the 6” Jacob’s square. You can change the color pattern around for a variety of looks. Kismet is gender neutral, making it great for a baby blanket! The idea for turning the Jacob’s ladder stitch on its side came from an awesome pattern designed by Tamara of Moogly. I’m not sure if she was the first to do it, but that is the first place I saw it.

Size:
12” square when made in the gauge listed.

Yarn:
RED HEART® Soft ~ about 80 g

Hook:
US 8/H/5.00mm

Gauge:
16 sts and 8 rows in a 4” square in double crochet

Other Supplies:
Yarn needle

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip st
sc ~ single crochet
dc ~ double crochet

Special Stitches:
qtr ~ Quad Treble Crochet: yo 5 times, insert hook into stitch, yo, pull through stitch (7 loops on hook), [yo, pull through 2 loops] 6 times.

Getting Started:
This pattern is worked off of the Jacob’s square. Complete the Jacob’s square without clipping the yarn at the end of round 7, then continue with this pattern. Click here for the Jacob’s Square pattern.

Pattern:
Round 1: Sl st into ch-2 corner space, ch 8 (counts as first qtr and ch 2), * qtr in first sc after ch-2 corner, (ch 1, skip 1, qtr in next st) 10 times, ch 2, qtr in ch-2 corner, ch 2, repeat from * 2 more times, qtr in first sc after ch-2 corner, (ch 1, skip 1, qtr in next st) 10 times, ch 2, sl st to 6th ch of beginning ch 8.

Kismet-Square-Round-1

Loop Ladder: Twist first qtr from round 1, ½ turn, * pull the next qtr through the loop, repeat from * around until all the qtr have been pulled through.
Insert hook from behind work, under the ch 2 and through the last qtr loop, insert hook back down to over the loop, and through the first qtr loop made, yo, pull through everything on hook. This will tack down the last loop. See the photos for step by step help.

Stripes and Swirls Crochet Pattern Round Up from Jessie At Home

Playing with color is fun! Stripes and swirls give us the chance to do just that. So grab a few of your favorite colors, and work up some of these patterns featuring stripes and swirls.

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Keiko Wrap ~ designed by Kim Guzman
Another beautiful Tunisian crochet pattern from Kim!

2) Crochet Rugby Scarf ~ Designed by Little Monkeys Crochet
I have been toying with the idea of doing a horizontally-striped crochet scarf for a while now… when I fell in love with a rugby-style knit scarf at the store a while back, I knew I needed to try it.

3) Joseph’s Puff Stitch Blanket ~ Designed by Jessie Rayot
Here is a fun puff stitch pattern I designed for a baby blanket for a friend of mine. By working the puff stitches around the posts of the row below, they create little polka dots that drop down into the previous color.

4) Candy the Elf Hat ~ Designed by Jessie Rayot
The candy cane colored spirals on this fun elf hat will bring a smile to your face. Available in toddler to adult sizes, this pattern is fun and whimsical!

5) Nautilus Baby Beanie ~ Designed by Creative Threads by Leah for Cre8tion Crochet
This Nautilus Baby Beanie is super adorable.

6) Serape Shawl ~ Designed by Marie Segares
This stripe pattern in this rectangular shawl is inspired by the serape shawls of Mexico. The special stitch creates an interesting texture and a gentle drape.

7) Helix Hat ~ Designed by Danyel Pink
The Helix Hat is a fun, striped beanie that starts with a three-colored spiral at the top. The instructions are color-coded, and include color illustrations.

8) Rainbow Dash Baby Blanket ~ Designed by Beatrice Ryan Designs
This Free Crochet Pattern is an adorable baby blanket that is bright and cheery… It can be made using one or more colors to get the effect you desire. Great texture front and back too!

Don’t forget to check out some of the other great Round Ups that have happened in Blogland over the last week!

If you want some fun stripes in a kit (pattern and yarn all together) Take a look at Craftsy Kits. Here is one I love:

I am having a rough day today. Everything will work out, it always does, but sometimes you just need a reminder of the good in the world. Within the midst of my rough day, there were a few reminders of the good in the world. It made me feel the need to go back to an old post of mine. It’s been a while, and I have a lot of new readers, so I thought I would re~share it with you.

So, take a look at this post of mine, and read all about the time I met the real Santa.
