Filet Heart Square

~30 yds of worsted weight yarn

5mm hook

Tapestry needle

 

Abbreviations:

ch=chain

GAUGE NOTE: This pattern can be made using any gauge of yarn when paired with an appropriate hook (the hook size recommended by the yarn manufacturer should be fine). Larger gauge yarn/hook combinations will yield larger square. Likewise, smaller gauge yarn/hook combinations will yield smaller squares. Be sure to use the SAME GAUGE FOR ALL SQUARES!

Edging: 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  INITIAL TURNING CH 1 (from the end of row 13) DOES NOT COUNT AS A STITCH! The ch 2 will form the corners. For easy reading I have written the steps for each side separately as follows below.

 

Side 1: ch 1, Stitch back into the row you just completed (sc, ch 2, sc) in the first stitch. Place 1 sc next  23 dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in last stitch of row, rotate the square clockwise so that the next side is facing up and continue on the new side. (27 sc, 4 ch)SEE PICTURE BELOW

Side 2: Place 2 sc (not together, spaced evenly) into the side of dc you just stitched into on the previous side. For all other dc along this edge place 2 sc along the side of each dc. Try to space the sc evenly along the edge. Rotate the square clockwise so that the next side is facing up and continue on the new side. (26 sc total) SEE PICTURE BELOW

Side 3: *NOTE: this is a great (optional) opportunity to stitch over that initial tail so that you don’t have to tuck that tail later* (sc, ch 2, sc) in the first stitch of the new side. Place 1 sc next  23 dc, (sc, ch 2, sc) in last stitch of row, rotate the square clockwise so that the next side is facing up and continue on the last side. (27 sc, 4 ch) SEE PICTURE BELOW

Side 4: Place 2 sc into the side of dc you just stitched into on the previous side. For all other dc along this edge place 2 sc along the side of each dc. Try to space the sc evenly along the edge. Join using ss or invisible join method. FO. (25 hdc total) SEE PICTURE BELOW
