B FOR BUMBLE BEE GRANNY SQUARE

ALPHABET SERIES - IN THE ROUND - 43

Welcome back to Sweet Nothings Crochet free pattern blogs.
If you have been following my blogs, you’ll know that we’re creating some really cute 9” x 9” squares for Project Chemo Crochet that will go to making blankets for toddler battling cancer.

This is my 4th mitered granny square in my alphabet in the round series.
In case you have just joined me, just check under “labels” on the right hand side of this blog and look under “crochet granny squares” or “crochet blankets” for what we’ve been working on.
Then feel free to follow me here on my blog or via Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest (all links at the end of this blog) so that all future feeds and patterns come right to you.  Cheers.

Thanks for coming along and spreading smiles.

Materials used : Today I’ve used a 4-ply acrylic baby soft yarn with a 4 mm crochet hook.
It does not matter what yarn / hook you use, to make it to any size you want.

Abbreviations used :
sc : single crochet                                                  dc : Double crochet
ch : chain                                                   ch-sp : chain space
sp : space                                                   rep : Repeat
trc : Treble / triple crochet
dtrc : Double triple crochet


Stitches used :
Starting slip knot : This is a neat new way to start your work without a slip knot.

Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

Hdc : Half Double Crochet : yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk), yo, draw through all 3 lps.  One hdc made.

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

I am back to this fantastic basic square pattern from Rhonda
I have her permission to use the pattern and blog about it.

So for our B for Bumble bee square, work the first set (for the round) in one colour and then work the second part of the pattern (to create the square) in another colour – or work all in one colour as desired.  This gives you the basic square.

Using a tapestry / embroidery needle, I just joined my bumble bee onto the square.

There are loads of crochet patterns for making the alphabets, but I chose to use my needle and embroidery skills to “write out the capital and small B” J
I hope to make a few more alphabet squares in the same way and I hope you’ll join me to work on them together. J

Then mosey on over to this lovely free pattern for a bear at http://www.mariasbluecrayon.com/2017/02/bear-granny-square-woodland-afghan.html
I just decided to change the colours a bit and make him a black bear J
This pattern link has a whole square – so see which one works for you.

Once I’d made my bear motif, using a tapestry / embroidery needle, I just joined the motif onto the square.

There are loads of crochet patterns for making the alphabets, but I chose to use my needle and embroidery skills to “embroider in the B” J
I hope to make a few more alphabet squares in the same way and I hope you’ll join me to work on them together. J
