Winter Rose Sampler Square Pattern - Free

Hi all,
Most of you have seen this pattern for sale in my etsy shop so your probably wondering why I'm just giving it away now. Well, I'll tell you why..... 'Cause I've only sold a few and none recently (probably thanks to this economy) and I really want my patterns to be used even if it means I have to put one up for free once in a while.

So please enjoy this free pattern and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTmas!!!

Winter Rose 12" Sampler Square
Finished Size: 12" X 12"

Materials:
Size “G” hook (or size “F” if you crochet loose)
Approx. 4 ounces worsted weight yarn of choice
Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends.

Gauge:4 Sc and 4 Sc Rows= 1" Square

Special Stitches:
Popcorn: Dc in indicated space 5 times, take hook out of loop and insert into first dc made,then back into the dropped loop. Pull the loop through the first dc.

Shell: (2 dc, ch2, 2 dc) into indicated space.

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC): Yarn over, insert hook behind post of stitch (insert hook from front to back of stitch), Yarn over, pull through, Yarn over, (pull through 2 loops) 2X’s. That will complete the FPDC.

Front Post Double Crochet Two Together: (This is worked almost completely the same as the FPDC- Around the posts and counts as one Dc) *Yarn over, insert hook behind post of first Dc,(insert hook from front to back of stitch), Yarn over, pull through, Yarn over, pull through 2 loops.* Repeat from * to * in next Dc. You will have 3 loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on hook. This stitch is worked over the 2 FPDC’s right by each other in Rnd 11. Basically a DC 2 Tog just
around the post of a stitch instead.

Cluster: *Yo, insert hook in st indicated, Yo and pull up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook; Repeat from * 2 more times, Yo and draw through all 4 loops on hook. Cluster completed.

V st: (dc, ch1, dc) in space indicated in pattern.

Yo: Yarn over.

Note: If you’d like to make the center a different color fasten off yarn at end of Rnd 2 and join your main color in any Ch2 space and start off with Rnd 3 on through the rest of the pattern. Also, it’s possible you might be close to 12" or very close to 12" when you’re a few rows from being done with the pattern. If that’s the case, just omit the last few rows. The design will still hold itself. The last few rnds just helped me to get up to 12 inches. I’m a fairly tight crocheter.

Julee, I would like to add this to a voting list for 2011 Block a Month CAL. I clicked the link and got the beautiful pattern but it will not allow the picture to post.
First of all...do you mind if you pattern is used this way. I think it would draw crocheters to your site. Let me know if you do not want it posted.
Thanks in advance.

Hi, I was doing fine until row 12, is there a video tutorial that I could watch?

wm.harding said...

I Love the square and I am wanting to grow out of basic stitches. This looks like some code from whatever? Anyway, a lot of us want to crochet more complicated things but would love a tutorial by video. We can learn new stitches by doing. I am frustrated by even looking at basic stitch directions on paper so complicated ones--- well???...There are those of us that learn and do
better the visual way...
