How to Crochet | Wedding Dance Square CAL Pt 3 of 3 (Left Handed)


– [Kristen] It’s the Wedding
Dance Crochet Along Square. Let’s make this together. (upbeat music) Welcome to GoodKnit Kisses. We’re all about helping
you stitch your love and love your stitches. Today’s video is
part three of three for the Wedding
Dance Crochet Square. It’s a 12-inch square. We’ll be working on the
remaining rounds of the border. So, rounds four through
the ending of it. You’re going to need
Contrast A and C. Click down below for a link
to the pattern of the square. All right, for this part, we’re going to begin
with round four and I’ve already got round
three in this color B. And where I’ve completed
before was down here and I’m just kind of rotating and coming just to
a different spot to change where we’ve got
all of our tails ending. So, I’m just gonna go
right into this chain space right after the corner here and we’re gonna be
working with Contrast A. You’ll also wanna have
Contrast C on hand because we will do one
round of that in this to complete this border here. So, I’m gonna set that aside and go ahead and put a
slip knot on your hook. And we’re just gonna join
by slip stitch right here into that first chain
space after the corner. Tighten that up. All right, and now, we’re
going to chain three. One, two, three. Oh, and I’m showing
the blue here because that’s actually
the original color, not this bright green. This is that dark navy blue if you’re following the pattern for the VIP color
in the Chic Sheep. All right, so this is going
to take care of the height for our half double
crochet plus a chain. So this round,
round four and five, are gonna be exactly the same, they’re just different colors. So, we’re going to yarn over. We’re gonna make a
half double crochet into each chain space. So we have double
crochet right in here, so we’re going to insert
into the chain space, yarn over, pull up
a loop, yarn over, and pull through
all three loops. So, one, two, and three. And then we’re
going to chain one and then we’re gonna move
on to the next chain space. Yarn over, insert
into that chain space, pull up a loop, yarn
over, pull through three, and chain one. So continue, half double
crochet in the next chain space, chain one, and
continue all the way up until you get to
the first corner. Pause your video and I will meet you there
to show you what to do. See you in a moment. All right, so we’ve
come to our corner and we’re just going
to half double crochet into this corner space and then we will chain two,
half double crochet, chain one. So, we’re just gonna
be continuing on as
we’ve done before with a couple of chains
to make that corner. So we yarn over, go
into that chain space, yarn over, pull up a stitch, yarn over, pull through
all three loops, and then we’re going
to chain two, one, two, yarn over, insert
into that chain space and pull up a stitch. And we’re going to yarn over
and pull through all three. And don’t forget that
chain at the end. And then you’ve
made your corner. Yarn over and go into
that next chain space and continue with half
double crochet, chain one, on every chain space across. And then repeat your
corners all the way around. Pause your video, I’ll
meet you back up at the end to complete this round
and move on to the next. See you soon. All right, so we’re
coming to the end and I’m on my last corner. You half double, chain
two, and half double, in that last chain space
here in the corner. And one more chain one. And then I am back to, or
if you’re not quite there, you’ll just continue
on in the chain spaces, but I’m back to my chain
three from the very beginning. I’m just gonna go into
the second chain here, so it’s gonna lay one
little chain for a spacing. We’re gonna go right in there and we’re gonna
slip that stitch. So, we’re just gonna yarn over and pull through both of those. And then we’re gonna cut it. I’ve actually already
cut my yarn here, so go ahead and clip that
and pull it on through. And now we’re ready
to begin round five and round five works
with Contrast C. So, we’re gonna grab
Contrast C, make a slip knot, and we’re just gonna
spin this around and come in on this
side over here. We’re just starting
in a new place. And so, we’re just gonna
do exactly what we did in round four, except we’re
working with Contrast C, and this is the last
time this is used. So, we’ll go into a chain space. I’m just gonna go a
couple from the end here. Do that one more time. Okay. I run in that chain space and slip the stitch. And we’re gonna chain three. One, two, three. And then we’re gonna
half double crochet into that chain space, and chain one, and then half
double in the chain space, and chain one,
and just continue. And the corner is
done the same way as you just did
the previous round. You’re just going
to do half double, two chains, half double, and
then a chain one and continue. So, just as before,
pause your video, join me back up,
and we’ll meet you for joining and moving
on to the next round. See you soon. Okay, so coming on
this last corner, half double crochet, chain
two, half double crochet, chain one, and last
chain space here, chain one. And now, we’re gonna go
into the third chain here because one chain represents
the chain after half double and then you got the
second chain up here resembles going at the
top of a half double. So, we’re just gonna
pull one right on through and then slip that stitch. And then now, you
can cut your yarn and then pull that on through. And then now, we’re
going to start adding on for our next round,
which is round six. So, grab your Contrast A and make a slip knot. So now that I’ve
fastened this off here, I’m gonna join it, the
next color down here, and turn it over. And so, it can actually help it from being a little bit wonky. It doesn’t actually say
that in the pattern, you don’t have to do that,
but I’m just going to. So, we’re gonna come
down away from the corner and just go into the top of one of these
half double crochets and just fasten that in. So, I’m just gonna
go into this one here and join. Okay. And so, for round six with
A, we’re going to chain one. And then we’re
gonna single crochet in each half double crochet
and chain space across. This first one is a chain space, so this chain represented
the stitch here. So now, we’re gonna go here and single crochet
in that chain space, then go into this half double
crochet and single crochet, go into the space,
single crochet, go into the half
double, single crochet, and continue on across. And then pause your video, I’ll meet you back up when
you get to your first corner and I’ll show you
how to do the corner. See you in a moment. Okay, so our
corners on round six and for the rest of the pattern, they look a little bit different than what we’ve been doing
and you’ll see why later. We’re going to do three single
crochets in this corner, so where this chain two space
from the previous round is, that’s where we go. So, make sure and put
in your single crochet on top of that half double and then just simply make
three single crochets. So, one, two, and three. And you can even make a note of which one is the
middle chain here and put a little
stitch marker in here to keep track for
the next round. I’ll talk about that again
on the next round as well. So, continue working
around single crochets in every stitch and
in the chain space. So, one on top here, one here,
and repeating going around. Pause your video and I’ll meet you back
up at the end to join. See you soon. All right, so I’m
completing round six. I’ve done one, two,
three on the corner, and then I need to go
into the top of this hdc, single crochet in
the next space, single crochet the hdc. Just continue along, and then there’s that
chain space there. Okay, so now we’ve got the
chain that we have right here, we want to, and that’s from
the beginning of the round, we’re just gonna
go right into that. It might be a little tight. Sometimes if it’s super tight, I’ll go right in with
my hook like this to kind of work my
way into that stitch. And then yarn over. And then we’re just
going to slip it and come right up like that. And that’s how
you end round six. Round seven and eight
are very similar. They’re just single
crochet rounds, so we’re just going
to chain up one, and I’ll show you both rounds. So we chain up one, we’re gonna single crochet
across to the corner. So, we’re gonna go ahead
and go this first one, single crochet all the way across. Pause your video as you need. I’ll just, whoops, I’ll just
go ahead and keep this going. And we’re gonna get to
this first corner here and we’re gonna do
three single crochets in the corner stitches. So, we had done three single
crochets in that space. And so, these corners
are setting up different on the last few rows and you’ll see it in
the end of the video where you can see the kind
of look that I’m going for. I don’t always do
my corners this way but I just happen to
do it on this one, and I’ll explain in the end why. So, it’s a little bit different. Okay, last one. Okay, now we’re in where
this chain space was, so this is the first one. So you can count one, two, and that’s the middle of
where we had gone before, and then the next
one will be three. So, the one, when we
hit two right there, we’re just gonna go back into
it again and single crochet, and do it one more time, three. So, that’s the corner stitch where we do three single
crochets and then move on, so you should have one more before that corner from the
previous round had gone. And then just continue
single crocheting around in every stitch. And every corner is going
to be just like that and I’ll remind you
again of it later but you can put a
stitch marker in these so you know exactly where
that third stitch is or the middle of those
three stitches there is. And anyway, so pause your
video, I’ll meet you back and we’ll join that up and
go on to the next rounds. See you soon. Coming to the end
of round seven, and just like the
end of round six, you’re just going to single
crochet that last stitch and come into the very
beginning chain that you used and yarn over and
pull up a stitch and then just slip that,
and then chain one. And now you’re ready
for round eight. In round eight, you’re just single
crocheting in each stitch. So you just come
across, single crochet, and then go to the next
stitch, single crochet. And then you’re gonna
make the corners just like you did before
with three single crochets in that very corner stitch. So, you may have to look at
where you had those three there. If you wanna find the middle one and put a stitch marker there just so you can tell, that’s
fine, whatever works for you. All right, so go ahead and
continue on this round. Pause your video,
I’ll meet you back up for the end of round eight and
we’ll complete this together. See you soon. All right, so we’re coming
down to the end of round eight. Finish those single crochet, and then we’re going
to slip stitch join like we’ve done on
the other rounds. Just go right into
that beginning chain
and slip that stitch and then clip your
yarn, break your yarn, and pull it on through. And then you’re just gonna
use your tapestry needle to weave in the ends. Just weave them in, the
individual stitches, in the color that you used. And block this to
a 12 by 12 square. And you can see how the
borders on that very edge in this white or linen color, they have, like, this
really nice solid look to it and then you’ve got
the really lacy here. So, I designed this to make
it look a lot more solid and that’s why my corners
are a little bit different because I wanted this to have,
like, the strength and rigid, traditional, with the whimsy of this sort of
dancers in the middle. And I would suggest that if you’re going to
stitch them together, you can use either the white
or this middle, this taupe, ’cause this is the only
part that this was put in. So, your Contrast
B could be the part that stitches this together. If you want it to disappear, you could use the white as well. It would look very blocky
but it adds a nice color pop if you would pull
this color in here. So, that’s just a suggestion, or pull in this
Contrast C as well. All right, I hope you
enjoyed this video. I enjoyed making it. Be sure to check out more

  • Here I am from Mallorca, and I love this pattern. When the cooler weather comes , I'll soon be doing more things. As I think I told you, we only have the Chinese looms which are the normal.plastic ones. I'd love to learn some stitches.
