Finished Size: 301/2 " w x 301/2 " h (77.5 cm x 77.5 cm)

MATERIALS

  • 100% Cotton fabrics [44/45"w (112/114.5 cm)]:
  • Red - 83/4 yards (8 meters)
  • Tan - 11/4 yards (1.1 meters)
  • Crochet hook, size N (9.00 mm) or size needed for gauge
  • Metal yarn needle
  • Rotary cutter and mat (optional)

GAUGE: 7 sc and 8 rows = 4" (10 cm)

PREPARING FABRICS

Wash, dry, and press fabrics. Cut off selvages and then tear or cut fabrics into 3/4 " (19 mm) wide strips along the longest direction of fabric. For quick results, a rotary cutter and mat may be used to cut several layers of fabric at one time.

Note #1: If your fabric is lighter on one side, then you may wish to fold the strips in half so that the desired color will show up in your stitches. Another idea is not to fold your fabric at all, just let both sides show. This will give your design a “shaded” appearance.

Note #2: Do not join at end of each round unless instructed. Using a scrap piece of fabric, place marker around first sc of each round, moving marker as first sc of each new round is made.
