Squares 8, 9, 10 - 63 Squares Crochet Along


Because of my gauge changes frequently (from start to finish of a session, and from stitch to stitch, and depending on how I'm feeling!), for most squares I do 3-4 rows, measure for 7.5 inches, then pull it out and try again with a different hook! So, there are a lot of restarts!

Square 8: Chevron Relief Stitch
Hook: G
I was 2/3 done when I really looked at it and realized I was making a parallelogram, not a square! It took another 4 attempts before I got a square!

Square 9: Arch Stitch
Hook: E (plus one multiple of 5)
I didn't want big holes, so I started with G, moved to F, and finally ended up with E. I had to add one multiple of 5 stitches to make the square wide enough with this smaller hook.

Square 10: Offset Cluster
Hook: G


I'm stuck on the chevron relief square and trying to figure out what I keep doing wrong. The instructions say to "skip 2sc behind FPdc(now and throughout)" on Row 4 of the instructions. ????? What does that mean?

When I do the first two hdc and then the FPdc I don't understand what I do next. It's confusing.

Hi, Debora - I haven't checked email in a while so this is a very late response. I recommend you post your question on the Crochetville.com forums. There are *a lot* of people there who have worked on the 63 Squares Heirloom afghan.
