Ok, so by now, if you have been crocheting your little heart off, you should have your-self a nice little pile of green granny squares varying in size, as shown in the photo above. Well done if you have made all 12 squares!
Next we are going to add a sprinkling of ‘snow’ to our green granny squares. Reach for your white yarn, I’ve chosen a textured yarn (the one shown in the photo below) it’s another favorite yarn of mine for christmas crocheting, it kind of resembles terry toweling I suppose you could say, it just adds a new dimension to your crochet. Please don’t worry if you can’t source that particular yarn as I said before plain white yarn will be perfect!
With your white yarn work one round of crochet around each of your green granny squares, refer to the photo below.
Lovely, it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Once that’s been done, it’s time to weave and trim the tails. Turn over your squares so that the wrong side is facing upward. If you have ‘worked over’ the centre tail…
…then you can simply snip that tail off. If you haven’t ‘worked over’ that tail then make sure you weave in the tail before snipping.
The wrong side of your squares should look like this now (refer to the photo below).
I only want you to weave and snip two of the remaining three tails. We will need one of the tails to assist with ‘assembling’. Refer to the above and below photo for reference as to which tails to weave and snip.
All squares should now resemble the below photo.
The next installment will be posted on Friday! We will begin assembling….
