Xmas themed square

Recommended Posts

Its not great but this is my first attempt at surface crochet. Atleast you can see that it says "God Jul" (Merry Christmas in Swedish). It is a 6x6inch crocheted square for the Global Square Exchange.

I LOVE it!  My Mother was born in Sweden and I would love, love, love to try to make something like this as a tribute and rememberance of her!  Is there a pattern anywhere?

Sadly I just made it up as I went along.

Using DK weight and a 4mm hook, just crochet a plan sc 6x6" square Chained 27 if I remember correctly, sc 26 down the chain. Once worked up a square, went around the square in sc (3sc in each corner) then changed colour to red and went around it again. The holly is from Attic24 blog http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/holly-leaves.html using DK yarn and 3.5mm hook. Then just did the surface crochet, learnt it from http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-crochet-surface-crochet-or-surface-slip-stitch/.

Sorry I can't be more specific. It really was just winging it.

Haha my Swedish MIL has just asked me to make her a couple as well to use as Xmas decorations. :) So it looks like I will be getting more practice with the surface crochet then :lol
