Robin’s nest square

   How can x2 part completed quilts just get mislaid????  That is the question I am pondering this week.  Several years ago I started on two lovely quilts and I cant find them anywhere.  However I did find this…

A square I hooked several years ago… along with my scribbled notes on the pattern.  So I hooked up a new one and thought I’d share.  

As always I’m using English crochet terminology.

Ch – chain

Slst – slip stitch

dc – double crochet  

tr – treble crochet  

ch3 – counts as a treble unless otherwise stated.  

I’m using drops muskat cotton

and I’m using the colours listed below

red

old pink

white

vanilla yellow

dark orange

sky blue

apple green

and a 4mm crochet hook. This lovely yarny square measures 7″ x 7″ or 18cm x 18cm once blocked.  To download a pdf version click here, otherwise full instructions are below. 

So here goes…

Pin out to block… this is really worth the extra effort.  I just pinned this square to a clean towel,

then spritz with water and leave to dry.

blocking really makes the the world of difference…

A very versatile yarny square.  

Happy hooking
