1 skein of DK Paintbox Yarns = 100 g / 3.5 oz / 276m - 302 yards) 

For this project you will need approx. 5.5 m (6 yards) of yarn


About 2” (5 cm) in diameter


17 stitches & 16 rows in sc = 4” (10 cm) square with a 4.5 mm hook


- You can use any type of yarn as long as you have a corresponding crochet hook size (check yarn label for recommendations). 

- Numbers at the end of each step (in brackets) indicate the number of final stitches in that step. 

- For this pattern, I tended to crochet between the dc post stitches, as opposed to into the “v” of the dc sts.

- Ch 2 sts at the beginning of a round count as a dc st.

Stitch How-To Instructions

Instructions for Ch (Chain):Bring the yarn over the crochet hook from back to front and hook it. Draw hooked yarn through the loop of the stitch on your hook and up onto the working area of your hook.

Instructions for sc (Single Crochet):Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (you now have two loops on hook), yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook (note: this is equivalent to the UK Double Crochet (dc) stitch)

Instructions for dc (Double Crochet): Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over again, pull the loop back through the stitch (you now have three loops on hook), yarn over again and pull through two loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through the remaining 2 loops on your hook. (note: this is equivalent to the UK Trebble Crochet (tr) stitch)

Instructions for Sl St (Slip Stitch): Insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through your last stitch AND through the loop on your hook (through both stitches).

Instructions for Fastening Off: After the last stitch of the last round, cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch end. Draw the cut end of your yarn completely through the stitch & pull to tighten knot.
