Flame Square - free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Flame Square
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

The Flame Square is full of post stitches and awesome texture! Grab your “I” hook and Vanna’s choice yarn in these firey colors and create this bright square for yourself. This square would also look wonderful in one solid color. Make several in each of 3 or 4 neutral colors and join them into a unisex blanket sure to wrap anyone in love! I have included a link for a post st tutorial (along with links for tutorials for most of the other sts) and a chart to help you along.

Le patron est disponible en français, merci à Véronique Malanda Mavouala! Cliquez ici pour voir la version PDF.

    Hi Jessie – loving the idea of finishing my sampler afghan with some flame squares, but I’m wondering if there’s a picture link issue as I can’t see any above. Thanks for all you do, too! Love your work xx

      There’s nothing wrong with any of the pictures, it may be something on your end. You can also click on the Ravelry link at the top to see the pictures there, but it should work here as well.

    Hi, I’m confused about round 3. Is it just repeating it self by accident with the fpdtr to the first round?? Or do I really do this twice?? Dosent look that way in the pic.

    Okay, my count is fine on round 7, but I keep getting 21 st. instead of 22 on each side of round 8. What am I doing wrong??

      It sounds like you added a st somewhere.

    I’m having a hard time trying to convert to a PDF. I don’t want to print through Craftsy since the pattern is free. I can however download a PDF in French. I need it in English

      At the bottom of the pattern there is an image for an ad free PDF, if you click that it will take you to Craftsy were you can get the ad free PDF. If you want to use print friendly or clean print, the instructions for that can be found in Moogly’s post for Square 1.

        I am having a difficult time getting your page to work on print friendly, everytime I copy and paste your link it keeps saying Ack! Print technology unable to determine the content, everytime I put your link in.

          Sorry about that. I don’t use Print Friendly, so I can’t help you with that. You can get the PDF from Craftsy, or you can cut and paste it into a doc yourself, and then print that.

    HI,

    I am having trouble with round 4. Do you do 2 bphdc in the same stitch? I know that is what it says but I am having a difficult time making 2 bphdc in the same stitch. Probably just my inexperience with this stitch. I watched the tutorial but it always shows just one stitch per stitch never 2. Am I missing something? Thanks

      Yes, you do 2 in the same st, once you work around the post to do the first st, you just work around it again, so the base of the new st stacks right under the base of the first st.
