Rocky Mountain Spiral Square
by Snappy Tots
Above is her square, made in 5 colors! Below is my CAL square, in my 6 colors!
My Notes: This square has so many possibilities! And the pattern includes fantastic step-by-step photos, as well as super helpful tips and notes. Be sure to read through the whole pattern before you begin so you don't miss any of them. The Tip for Rnd 3 on is particularly important! She's also working on a video tutorial that should be up soon.
Helpful Links and Tutorials: Magic Circle; Working in a Spiral; Working into a Slip Stitch; BLO - Back Loop Only; Standing Double Crochet; Standing Single Crochet; Sc2tog; Surface Crochet; and Seamless Finishing.
Sizing: My square was coming out a tiny bit big, so I skipped Rnd 19 and that got me to 12". However, everyone's gauge and tension levels are different so be sure to measure as you go. Learn how to adjust for size HERE to make sure all your squares are the same size. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
Rnd 1-2: White
Rnd 3-4: Tangerine
Rnd 5-6: Lettuce
Rnd 7: Iced Aqua
Rnd 8-9: Pewter
Rnd 10-17: Cornsilk
Rnd 18: Lettuce
Rnd 19: skipped for size
Rnd 20: Pewter
This square required mild blocking. I used the wet blocking method, or you could use a light steam.
