Week 12 of The 50 Stitches Crochet Along

week 12 of the 50 stitches crochet along blog image

This stitch needs you to hold your yarn a different way to usual, and the end result looks different too, so don’t be worried about the odd looking stitch being created.

You can find the links for all the squares in the crochet along here. The free pattern is below, but if you’d like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for £5 from Ravelry

This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below.

UK Translation

Single crochet (sc) = double crochet

The Pattern

I highly recommend watching the video to see how to form the loop for this stitch.

You will need a 3.5mm hook for this square

Start by making a foundation chain of 31

Row 1. Sc in the 3rd chain from your hook (turning chain counts as a stitch). Sc in each stitch across – 30 stitches 


Row 2. Chain 1 (doesn’t count as a stitch), sc in the first stitch Make a loop stitch in each stitch across. In final stitch sc.

To make a loop stitch, insert your hook into the next chain. Wrap the working thread around 2 fingers, or pull up a loop with your index finger. position your hook under the yarn closest to your work, (Yarn is laying on top of your hook, now) 

Catch the 2nd strand on your hook and draw both strands through your stitch. You will have 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all loops.

wrap the strand of yarn closest to your work around your hook

Catch the yarn with your hook

catch the yarn furthest away from your work on your hook

catch furthest loop with your hook


Row 3. Chain 1 and sc in the first stitch. Sc in each stitch across – 30 stitches

Rows 4- 24. Repeat rows 2 and 3.

You will have 12 rows of single crochet and 12 rows of loops. Ending with a row of loops

The Border

The Loop Square Border

Sc in each stitch across the top and bottom. Make 1 single crochet in the side of each row except rows 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 24 where you will make 2 sc in the side of the row.

You should have 30 sc down each side, plus an extra stitch in each corner for the turn. This will make your stitch count as 32 stitches across each side and 124 stitches total (remember the extra stitch corner stitch is counted in the stitch count for both sides)

You have now finished your square and join and you can tie off and weave in the ends

You can now add the interlocking border, joining this weeks square to last weeks as you join. You can see how to do this here
