Before we send you off to work on Clue #2, here’s how the Clue 1 square should look. I hope yours looks just like this one.
Now let’s get on with Clue #2.
In the sc/dc square we worked back and forth - sometimes the right side (RS) of the square was facing you and sometimes the wrong side (WS) was facing you. In this clue we’re going to be working in rounds, rather than rows. This means that the right side of the work will always be facing you while you’re making these squares.
We begin with a chain which needs to be joined with a slip stitch (sl st) to form a ring.
Next we work stitches into the ring. Insert your hook directly into the center hole of the ring when making each stitch.
To make your work neat and to have fewer ends to darn in here’s a little trick. Hold the tail behind the chains of the ring and work over the tail as you work the stitches into the ring. I try to work over tails whenever possible because my least favorite activity is darning in ends! In the photo, you’re seeing the back of the work with the tail under the dc stitches.
At the end of each round we join with a slip stitch to the first stitch that we made in that round (in this case, the top chain of the beginning chain 3.)
Have fun working your granny squares. See you back here next week with a picture of Clue 2 and with Clue 3.
