I’m always on the lookout for easy, simple construction techniques for creating stylish, crochet garments. So when I learned about Australian crochet designer, Jenny King’s Get Squared ™online tutorial, I jumped at the chance to purchase it.
To understand this construction technique, I started with the basic “Cosy” pullover. But I decided to make mine without sleeves so I can wear it in Hawaii’s year-round, warm climate. I used two skeins (actually about 1 1/3 skeins) of Lion Brand’s Wool Ease sport-weight yarn and a J/6 mm crochet hook.
Incredibly, Jenny has discovered a way to create unique designs that fit a wide range of sizes, employing yarn weights from fingering- to worsted-weight, with only one crochet hook size, namely the J/6 mm hook.
One of my absolute favorite things about this design is the Mock Moss stitch used on the armhole and bottom edges. It creates a neat edging that will blend well with any stitch pattern.
The tutorial includes five unique designs, from pullovers, to cardigans, to shrugs, all based on the granny square stitch. And Jenny promises more stitch patterns in the near future, at no additional cost.
Adventurous crocheters can easily turn the pullover into a dress, add lacy edgings, and more, as can be seen from the Get Squared ™ Pinterest page.
The course costs around $32, depending on the current rate of exchange from Australian to US dollars. You can also purchase it on a USB drive for $10 more, plus shipping.
I make absolutely no money when you purchase this tutorial; but I love it so much, I want to tell the world about it. To discover how you can create your very own top-down, crochet designs, check out Jenny King’s website.
