CREAM FILLED BISCUITS GRANNY SQUARE : FOOD SERIES - IN THE ROUND - 35
FOOD SERIES - IN THE ROUND - 35
Welcome back to my next set of granny squares in the round.
This series is all food and more yummy food. I am going to try and use the centre round of the granny square as the main idea for the food we’re creating, whenever possible. If it does not work that way, then the centre round will become the container in which I hold the food. That’s what’s happening here – the centre round is the plate and we will have 3D cream filled biscuits piled onto it. Cool idea, huh?
This is the fifth in this food series - keep an eye out as I plan on making some more food squares.
As you may know, I am making these squares to donate to Project Chemo Cancer. Do read all about them on their Facebook page or websiste.
Their requirement is for 9” x 9” squares. So while all the squares I am making will be of that size, you can make it to any size, using any yarn and suitable hook. Just adjusting the hook / yarn size, will change the size of your square.
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
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.

For our project today, we will use this free pattern from https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/puppy-dog-granny-afghan-square
As you know I am making these squares specifically to a size of 9” x 9” and I found that I managed that easily without too much of a tweak.
I just worked till Round 10 and got to the size I needed.
So as we’re using this pattern to be the plate or container in which we hold the biscuits, decide on the colour for your plate and then we’ll make our bikkies to place on it. Got it? So go on ahead and visit the pattern sheet now.
