Let’s grab the end piece now and this is called the slipknot and what we’re going to do is stick a needle into the stitch, the last one or the first one that’s on that line. Now, let’s position the material in our hand so that the string and we’re going to rotate your needle and pull it through that stitch but we’re also going to pull it through the other stitch. So basically, you are now forming a circle. And now, you can really start to see where the actual corners will be.
So, let’s chain up three so one, two and three. And I’m teaching you now to do double crochet for this pattern and the one in behind is the actual sample of the real size for this. So, grabbing your material, wrapping it and let’s pull this apart, you can see where this chain comes out of. That is considered one of the post and posts in crochet are the actual distance. Did you see those? Those are the actual posts that you see. so we want to create three posts so the chaining counts is one and so we’ll do two. So, we’ll do another one in there so the chain count is one post and that we just double crochet it into the same hole.
Now, the secret number to the 10 to the five inch one is that we’re going to be now crocheting in sets of three. So now, let’s chain one okay. So now, I want you to put sets of three and this is what you’re saying here. Those are all sets of three in between the gaps. So wrap your needle, I call this the ring that you see it here and so what I want you to do is stick your needle through the ring okay so you’re not going to go in the stitches itself. Grabbing the material, pulling it back through and pull through two and two. So, you’re double crocheting around the ring like you would a coat hanger. So, you want to do three of this in a row.
Okay, so there’s your third one, so then after three, chain one. So, every time you finished a thing at three on the main runway and I called the ring one main runway when you’re not doing any corners. You’re always going to chain one after. So, let’s do another set of three, so let’s just double crochet. You could triple crochet if you know how to do that as well. And you’re not limited to that. And so what we want is that we want three sets of three between the first corner which is marked by the red and where you started. So, the first three that you put in there represents corner so you want another set in here. So, you want three sets in between all the corners on the very first line that we’re going around.
Okay so you see that. So because you are going in the ring, you can move these stitches and note we settle anywhere, wherever they want to once the material starts to get into going. So, you see three sets of three and then you see the corner over here. So, let’s create our first corner. So wrapping your material, we’re just going to move it so that we can see where this corner is. So, let’s go into the actual stitch itself to where we marked it with a red marker and pull through two into. And now, we want to put two more into that same hole that we just created. And by this, we’re stabilizing the corners by going into the actual chain stitch.
Now, in order to turn a corner, remember we have the chain two so one and two grabbing the material, going into the exact same hole again for another three in a row. So, one going at the same hole, pull two going to the same hole, pull three and this red marker will come out afterward once we get the corners established will be—well, we can establish this corner with endless line. So you kind of see, I’m kind of crocheting it in there but it will pop out because it will.
So now, let’s start again. So, we just finished the set of three so chain one. And now, we have to put three more sets, three sets of three between the next corner in this piece here. So, let’s go into the actual chain so we’re going to crochet into the actual ring again for another set of three in a row. Okay, so that was three. So now, we’re going to chain one so let’s do another tree. So, why is there different sizes of holes that I’m doing? Because the three stamps will all be different sizes if you’re using real trees. So, if I just did one, it won’t help people to have like one size, people to have different sizes will be—so I’m demonstrating various sizes that your tree possibly could be.
So now, we just finished the three sets of tree on that line. So now, we’re looking toward the corner which is marked by the purple this time. So, going into the actual stitch, pull through, pull through two and two and it’s going there again for two more times because everything is in set with three with this double crochet granny square. And we want to turn the corner next so one and two. We always put one and two on the corners and then we just do another set of three out of the same hole in order to cause it to turn immediately into our right hand turn. So, right into a 90-degree turn so let’s keep going here.
So, the next corner then is represented by the last marker that we see. So, this is a set of three’s so just chain one and now we’re going to put three sets of three into the ring again like we did before. Okay and then chain one in between every set of three, so going in again.
Once we get this first going around, it becomes so simple. It’s child plate once you get this established. Okay, so there’s the second set of three, let’s chain it one and let’s do the final set of three. Okay and chain one and now we got three sets of three. Now, we’re looking at the corner, grabbing the material going into the actual stitch where the new corner would be made to see why I’ve cut those markers in there. I didn’t have to count over stitches. You normally would have how to count from one to 10 over the promises that are hidden once you wrapped them in here so they’re hidden so it’d be very difficult. So, let’s turn the corners, so one and two and going to the same hold for another three.
Okay. So, we got our last one left and what I had, I recommend is just to make sure that it’s all like not twisting on you especially comes critical when we go to finalize this square. So, let’s chain one and now it’s the final runway area between here and the starting point. So, let’s put another three sets of three in there and I don’t want to catch those markers and then too much untangle it because I do, well I will pull those out. You probably just do two rotations like this around and I then I would pull those out because you’ve reestablished where your corners are. So, there’s one set of three, chain one. Let’s do the second set of three.
Onto the second set of three, let me just do the final set of three, okay. So, this is where you want to make sure that nothing is twisted like that’s kind of twisted so you want to make sure everything is sitting flat for you before you actually attach it, okay. It’s there, everything is flat, so everything is kind of flat like you see so what I want to do is fasten into the corner. So here we go, but this corner is special, this is the one that makes all the world different.
Okay, so chain one like you normally did after a set of three and now you’re going to wrap your material and this here normally we would have gone in here which is a bottom of this thing but we’re not going to slip stitched. What I want you to do is that see through first post like right there, we want to go into the completely. So go in, pull through, pull through two and going in again, pull through two and two and going in again. So, we did three in that same hole and now we want to turn the corner so one and two and then going into the same hole and put another three in there.
Okay. So, do you see that there? So now, what we’ve done is we’ve caused it to kind of go on top of each other around this corner and this is what will cost a never-ending to stop or to be created a never-ending square. This would be the only time you ever go over just two stitches like there. So, we chained one after the three like the normal and we’re going to go into the very first gap. So, it would be the only time that you’ll only have to add together and it must do that in order to create this effect. So, we’re going to put three in normal, every gap now gets three. So the secret is that you’re just looking for gaps. And again, make sure that these things are not twisting up on you because once you just kind of get establish a little bit and it won’t do it.
So, looking for the next gap, so this is section of three there so then the gap is right of to the section of three. And granny squares are the easiest way and the quickest way probably to make blankets because of the gapping. So, let’s go in and so there’s three in a row so the gap, you can just feel it with your fingers and you can very clearly see it as well. So, we’re just working our way across, okay. And let’s look for the next gap so there’s three stitches. We chain one as always after three and going to the next gap. And basically, what we’re trying to do now is all child’s play. You’re just looking for gaps and filling them in until you know that you’ve gotten to a corner which is very next. And make sure you chain one after a three.
So, there’s a corner rate there, you can see how it’s originating at the same hole. So, going into that corner piece for a set of three, okay and now one and two because we’re turning a corner and going into the same hole just like you would or we did on the last rotation. You must go into the same hole in order to create—you have to turn properly and you could see the turn is beautiful and the chain one as always. Now, you’re just looking for the gaps to just going to work your way across the lines, across the top until you get to the next corner and you’re just putting three into every gap and then chaining one.
So next gap, okay next gap, okay. So, instead of three chains going in, okay chain. And now the next one is the corner, you can see that quick as there, the two are originating, having the same whole so it’ll wrap in your material going right into the corner piece for a set of three and then chain to one and two so you can turn going into the same corner hole for another three to make that turn. And we can just rotate your material chain one after every set of three on scores. And we’re just going along now, the runway. I call it the runway, I don’t know if there’s an official name but that’s what I call it. And it makes sense for me.
Okay, just looking along where the gaps are coming, you can really feel it with your fingers. And having knot as always figures—just using the same material to make all of these demonstrations of the big size of these skirts. They’re all, it’s just way after this tutorial is done. I’ll just rip this part and redo it in just a bigger size and film all over again. Okay. And after three chaining one, again working our way around, the neat thing about doing granny squares and why they’re so popular is that they grow really quickly because you got to think about every rotation allows the material, every one revolution grows a material almost by nearly an inch in every direction so it goes really fast.
Okay, we’re working on the corner piece. You can see that because two are coming out of the same hole and then one, two in order to turn it and then in the same hole again. Okay and then chain one and then we’re coming back around. This will be the one of the last few minutes out of this video because once you get this concept—because I will have gone all the way around once after we did that fancy dancy never-ending way that I showed you to go onto the post on the very first rotation. It just makes sense.
Okay, so you can see this is where we are building up and we came overtop the post, you can see that the two, now that I’d told you is the only time you over see it and it’s right there. So, you know that you’ve done a full revolution. If you feel the desire, you can always mark where you’re starting and stopping point is, not that it matters because it’s a never-ending. So let’s crochet one, our chain one and now let’s go into the actual corner. So, don’t be scared to change colors anytime you want to, there are videos on how to do that as well. We are turning our corners so you’ve changed your two. And I love this kind of method of the never-ending because now that you’ve gone all the way around the square is really visible as you can see and you just got to keep following it along. And then when you get to the corner and just do your fancy-corner stitch again and here you go, it’s your never-ending Christmas tree skirt and it’s the five-inch centerpiece.
