I have some ideas for making ones in different sizes down the track, but for now you get this six inch square. xoxo
Rock Solid Circle in a Square
I used a general 8ply Acrylic Yarn (Panda Carnival 100% Acrylic) and a 4mm hook.
This is written in US terms.
Sp – space
Ch – chain
DC – double crochet
TR – treble or triple crochet
Pattern:I’m writing this as a basic pattern. I've used “chain 3” as the start of the first round and thereafter a
standing DC, they all count as a DC; however, you can use whatever starting method tickles your
fancy. You can make this in one continual piece, or you can tie it off each row. Just have fun with it.
Make a magic circle (tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PmaQJbyVt0 )
Ch 3, DC 11 into the magic circle. Join and tie off. (12)
Ch 3, DC in same stitch. 2DC in each stitch around. Join and tie off. (24)
Ch 3, DC in same space, (1DC, 2DC) x 11. DC in last stitch, join and tie off. (36)
Converting to a square:
Choose any stitch to begin. Ch3. In next stitch work *(1DC, 2TR, 1DC), 1DC, 2HDC, 2SC, 2HDC, 1DC**
from * to ** forms one side. Repeat twice more. Repeat once more BUT leave off the last 1DC as
this is the ch3 from the beginning of the round. Join and tie off. (48).
If you want the square larger, please go to round 4 of my square pattern found here:
Rock Solid Granny Square
Please note, the stitch counts DO NOT match between the two styles. The Rock Solid Circle in a
Square has 8 stitches between the corner stitches in the outer row – which is roughly equivalent to
row 3 in the Rock Solid Granny Square which has 7 stitches between the corner stitches.
So row 4 in the Rock Solid Circle in a Square will have 11 stitches in-between, Row 5 will have 14
stitches in-between and Row 6 will have 17 stitches.
Regardless of the slight difference, the patterns are worked in the same style; you will just add one
more stitch in the middle of the row between the corner sections. You still flip your work over in
I hope you enjoy this and I can't wait to see what you make.
