Play with a purpose – The Posy Square

All you need is a ball of yarn and a hook!

I’ve been playing around with a few odd balls of scrap yarn. Some were so small they really qualified as ‘lengths’ rather than ‘balls’. However, the object was to make a circle in a squaare – as easily as possible!

Now I don’t  expect that this is an original method, but it works. (If anyone knows another source please let me know)

Twelve UK trebles into a magic circle to start. The second round is just two UK trebles into each gap between those of the previous round. Round three begins the conversion into a Granny Square, counting in threes, which can hopefully be seen in the above picture.

After this round it looks a little wonky. Don’t worry, it sorts itself.

Another round of treble blocks and the Granny Square is complete. Now, it really does look wonky, but….

Just a gentle pull from left to right – and another from top to bottom and…..

All ready for blocking.
