yarn in whatever flavor you want (I used Lily Sugar and Cream)
Mini Double Popsicle Crochet Pattern:
Sticks (make 2)
R1: sc4 in ML
R2: (sc, inc) rep 2 times (6)
R3-7: (sc) in each st around (6)
FO and leave a 7” tail for sewing
Using yarn in whatever “flavor” you picked
R1: in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 11 sts
R2: in 12th st, sc3, turn and sc down other side of R1 (24)
begin crocheting in the round
R3: (sc) in BLO of each st (24)
R4-14: (sc) in each st around (24)
R15: (2sc, dec) rep 6 times (18)
begin to stuff lightly and continue to stuff, but keep in mind you want the popsicle to be “flat” don’t stuff too much!
R16: (sc) in each st around (18)
R17: (dec, sc) rep 6 times (12)
R18: (sc) in each st around (12)
R19: (dec) rep 6 times (6)
FO with a 7” tail and weave top closed
Cut a length of yarn in your “flavor” color about 14” long. Using a running stitch from one side of the popsicle to the other, sew up the middle, creating the “double popsicle” effect and then weave the ends into the center of the popsicle.
Sew the two sticks onto the bottom of the popsicle.
So for my 52 week Granny Square project, I will be using the basic granny square pattern below. If you would like to crochet along with me, join the Ravelry group!
So here is the pattern:
Crochet Hook Size- H/5.00mm
I used 4 colors, but the cool part about a granny square is that you can use as many colors as you wish! I changed colors every row.
ss- slip stitch
dc- double crochet
ch6, ss to form loop
ch2 (counts as dc) 2dc, ch, *3dc, ch, rep from * around, join w/ss to top of ch2
change to color B
ch2 (counts as dc) 2dc in same st, *ch1, 3dc in previous ch1 sp, ch1, 3dc in same sp (this forms a corner) rep from * around, join w/ss to top of ch2
this pattern can be repeated around as many times as you wish. For each ch1 sp on an edge, you make one 3dc cluster and for every ch1 sp in a corner, you make two 3dc clusters to make the turn. Be sure to put a ch1 sp in between each 3dc cluster, to give you space for the next row.
