These squares could be subtitled: Sunflower, Marigold, Rainbow, in as far as my colour palette allows.
Square No. 13
I decided to crochet the first two rows in the same colour as I preferred the look and it was consistent with it being my ‘sunflower’ square.
Now to the issue of size
When the squares turn out the wrong size I tend to blame myself for not crocheting at a consistent tension but with this one I am not sure as the last row only has 27 dcs while with the ones that start at an edge it is often 31.
Anyway, when I finished this one it was only about five and a half inches square instead of just under six which was the norm (except for no. 1 and 11).
I wasn’t sure whether to undo it and try again with a larger hook or to add an extra row. In the end I added an extra row in the dark blue and liked it all the better for it. But is it still a little small?
Square No. 14
This was my Marigold square if only for the colour.
After the size issue with the previous square I measured it after the first two or three rows and decided that it too was set to be only five and a half inches so I undid it and changed to the 4.5mm hook that I normally prefer because I tend to think that I crochet tighter than other people. This brought it just under six inches so similar to most other squares, though maybe still on the small size.
Square No. 15
I know this has only six colours not seven and rainbows are red not pink but it is still my ‘rainbow’ square. I can see there will be others too!
Of course after all the above I was very anxious about what would happen to the size of this square but I started with the 4mm hook and lo and behold! it came out the default size so I was pleased.
Still not sure if it’s me or the patterns that make the squares inconsistent but I like these three squares and they will have a place in the final blanket.
Since I have now finished all the loose ends, I have taken new pictures.
I keep worrying about the relative sizes but maybe they will work out?
