Step 1a.

a) Organise your squares into 24 sets (set = 1x front & back square) 

b) Arrange your sets into your final layout.

Step 1b.

a) Take a square set & place fabric RIGHT SIDES together

b) Using 0.5cm seam allowance, sew sides together leaving a small gap

c) Turn the squares RIGHT SIDES out (through small gap)

d) Sew the small gap closed.

e) Iron

* Repeat until you have 24 sewn squares.

N.B  RIGHT SIDES = patterned sides

Step 3.

a) Using the Top Stitch seam as a guide, Blanket Stitch along all sides at 1cm intervals.

b) Tie off


N.B This pattern was made up as I went along, so you may find that the 1cm interval will fall short in places, especially at the corners  - THAT'S OKAY!

Great thing about crochet you really only need to know 4 stitches (& they are super easy) and you can make just about anything!
