Today's pattern is
PATTERN TERMS: US
YARN WEIGHT: DK (8PLY / LIGHTWORSTED WEIGHT)
HOOK SIZE: 5.00mm
SQUARE SIZE: 12cm x 12cm
I chose 11 colors and my blanket will measure about 150cm x 150cm when finished. Zelna makes a smaller blanket wit about 110cm x 110cm and she makes 8 of these squares.
Start with a magic ring. If you're not sure how to make a magic ring, you can find a good video tutorial here. Alternatively you can 3ch and work the 11 dc into the first chain from hook.
Round 1: Ch3 (counts as 1dc); 11 dc into the magic ring; sl st into 3rd chain of beginning ch3 to close round (12dc). Pull the beginning tail to close the center hole.
For an alternative way to end the round, follow this little tutorial:
Cut off the yarn leaving a 15 cm tail, pull the loop and thread a tapestry needle with the tail.
Round 4: Join yarn in space
between any 3dc groupings; 3ch (counts as 1dc), 2dc into same space as
join; 3dc into next space; 3trc, 3ch, 3trc into next
space (corner made); *3dc into each of the next 2 spaces, (3trc, 3ch, 3trc) into next
space*. Repeat * to * 3 times. Sl st into top of the beginning 3ch to close round.
Round 5: Before you start Round 5, turn your work, so you're facing the wrong (left) side. 3ch (counts as 1dc) 2dc into space between 3dc groupings; (3dc, 3ch, 3dc) into corner 3ch; *3dc into each of the next 3 spaces; (3dc, 3ch, 3dc) into corner 3ch*. Repeat * to * 3 times. 3dc into each of the next 2 spaces. Sl st into top of the beginning 3ch to close round. Now your square should look like this from the wrong (left) side.
Round 6: Before you start Round 6, turn your work again, so you're facing the right side. 3ch (counts as 1dc) 2dc into space between 3dc groupings; 3dc in each of the next 2 spaces; (3dc, 3ch, 3dc) into corner 3ch; *3dc into each of the next 4 spaces, (3dc, 3ch, 3dc) into corner 3ch*. Repeat * to * 3 times. 3dc into next space; sl st into top of the beginning 3ch to close the round. Break off yarn. You can also use the alternative method I shared above to end Round 6.

Finally finished! A sheath for my blue knife. The blade is my first handforged one (made that in August 2014) and although there are some things that could be made better, I am damn proud of that knife. The handle is stabilized maple and grenadill with aluminium rivets and lanyard tube.
