Picture of Arrow Granny Square

This is the first in what I hope to be many granny square style designs. I love making granny squares because you can use whatever you have on hand. With projects like these it is more about the pattern than the materials you use so don't worry if yours is a little different. Use whatever you want to make this pattern.
I called it the Arrow because that is what it reminds me of.

Step 1: Materials you will need.

Picture of Materials you will need.
Like most crochet projects you will need
Scissors
A crochet hook (I used an H, but you could use what works best for you and your yarn.)
Two colors of yarn, (This is worsted, but you could use whatever.)

Step 2: Glossary of terms.

This is always important.

Ch: chain
Sl st: slip stitch
Dc: double crochet

Step 3: Starting the Square

Picture of Starting the Square
Ch 4 and connect with a sl st. Making a hole to work your stitches in.
Ch 3 (counts as first) and Dc 15 into the hole. 
Do not turn your work.

Step 4: Working the first color

Ch 3 and dc in the same space.
Dc 1 in the next  3 stitches, dc 2 ch 1 dc 1 in next stitch, Dc 1 in next 3 stitches. 
In the next stitch dc 2.  
Do not finish off your last Dc. Leave the last two loops un-worked.

Step 5: Working the second color

To pick up the next color pull your second color up through the two loops of your previous dc. 
Ch 1 and dc 2 in the same space. 
Dc 1 in next three stitches, dc 2 ch 1 dc 2 in next stitch, dc 1 in next 3 stitches. Dc 2 in the same stitch as the first double crochet of the first color, ch 1 and sl st to the first stitch. 

Turn your work.
Do not cut the yarn of either color. 


Do you have a suggestion for a beginners tutorial? I'd love to try this....but I really need to start by seeing the basics. Thanks for sharing.
