Step 1: Square

For the squares is very easy

1- First, make a chain of 4.

2- Then, make a double crochet/treble in the chain stitch furthest from the hook.

3- Make another double crochet/treble in the same chain stitch. Now you have the first side completed.

4- Chain 2.

5- Make 3 double crochet/treble in the same chain stitch. Chain 2 again, make another 3 double crochet/trebles in the chain stitch and finally chain 2.

6- Join with slip stitch/single crochet in the top of the original chain and then slip stitch/single crochet your way through the top of the double crochet/treble stitches - as indicated by the arrows. Make sure you go through both of the 'legs' of the V of the stitch.

7- Now you get to the chain space. If you are continuing with the same colour, as I am here, just make a slip stitch/single crochet around the chain and then chain 3.

8- However, if you are changing colour, make the slip stitch/single crochet into the first chain stitch, then make a slip stitch/single crochet around the chain and then chain 3. This should ensure that your second colour is fastened properly

9- You should now have someting that looks like this

10- Make 2 double crochet/treble in the chain space, then chain 2. Make another 3 double crochet/treble in the same chain space. That is the first corner completed. For the following corners, make 3 double crochet/treble, chain 2, 3 double crochet/treble in each chain space.

11- You should now have something like this. Slip stitch/single crochet into the top of chain 3 you did at the beginning of the round. Then, like you did in the last round, slip stitch/single crochet through the top (arrow) of the double crochets/trebles to get you to the first chain space.

12- Repeat the first corner of the previous round, then make 3 double crochet/trebles in the next space and continue like this until you get to the end of the round. Every other round will be like this one, but with an increasing number of space between the corners. You should not make chain stitches anywhere else but in the corners

i there - I’m currently writing an article about bizarre, unusual and wonderful craft projects. I would love permission to publish this image, along with some text about the Mario project, and a link back to this article.

The article will be a slideshow of photos of unusual craft projects, and it is to complement an article we have about guerrilla knitting.:

If you could let me know by as soon as possible, that would be great.

Thanks and regards!

Arual (author)  poofrabbit4 years ago
thank a lot! ^ o^
My mom loves to crochet ,maybe she can make this for me.
Maybe she can!
Arual (author)  the_burrito_master4 years ago
yes! It's so warm in the winter or .. also as carpet but if you have a dog better not. Or on top of the bed
i just posted it on my moms FB ,asking her to make it for my birthday. I might make my own pattern for my mom to follow cause i want it to fit my bed, your looks a little small.

if you can just add it to the 2nd step and i'll even count up the squares it uses.

69 red
51 tan
43 brown
227 black wow that was unexpected.

Arual (author)  the_burrito_master4 years ago

I really like this but have never tried to crochet before. Is this project within the realms of a completely newbie crocheter/stitcher/fabric worker?
Arual (author)  esrun4 years ago
Yes! only have to do "the squares" but first you have to learn the basic crochet
This turned out great. Been thinking of making a granny square quilt. Thanks for the instructions. This might be it.
