Can I make it up to you?

I know I've been neglecting you all recently, so I thought maybe now would be a good time to post the Chain Link Granny pattern I promised you mumble mumble weeks ago.

I saw an unusual afghan on the internet last year, did a bit of searching but couldn't come up with a pattern for it, free or otherwise. Luckily, there was a good, clear picture so I played about a bit and came up with my own pattern. A reasonable facsimile, I think.

Chain Link Granny Square

(American Notation)


Worked in 4 colours – A, B, C and D

WW / H-5mm hook = approx. 7”

With A: ch5, join w slst to form ring.

Rnd 1 – Ch3, 2dc in ring, *[ch10, slst in 1st ch (corner loop made)], 3dc in ring, repeat from * around, slst to 3rd ch of beg ch3. Finish off.

Rnd 2 – With B: join w slst in sp to right of any corner loop, ch3, 2dc in same sp, *holding corner loop of prev rnd to front, work corner loop, 3dc to left of corner loop of prev rnd, 3dc to right of corner loop of prev rnd, repeat from * around, slst to 3rd ch of beg ch3. Finish off.

Rnd 3 – With C: join w slst in space to right of any corner loop, ch3, 2dc in same sp, *holding corner loop of prev rnd to front, work corner loop, 3dc to left of corner loop of prev rnd, 3dc in sp btw 2 groups of 3dc of prev rnd, 3dc to right of corner loop of prev rnd, repeat from * around, slst to 3rd ch of beg ch3. Finish off.

Rnd 4 – With D: join w slst in space to right of any corner loop, ch3, 2dc in same sp, *holding corner loop of prev rnd to front, work corner loop, 3dc to left of corner loop of prev rnd, 3dc in sp btw 1st 2 groups of 3dc of prev rnd, 3dc in nxt sp, 3dc to right of corner loop of prev rnd, repeat from * around, slst to 3rd ch of beg ch3. Finish off.

Rnd 5 – With A: join w slst in 1st dc of any side, ch3, dc in nxt dc x11, *[dc, tr] in sp to right of corner loop of prev rnd, ch2, [tr, dc] to left of corner loop, dc in nxt dc x12, repeat from * around, slst to 3rd ch of beg ch3. Do not finish off.

Chain Links: pull corner loops of Rnd 2 from back to front thru loops of Rnd 1. Pull Rnd 3 loops thru Rnd 2 loops. Pull Rnd 4 loops thru Rnd 3 loops.

Rnd 6 – Ch2, hdc in nxt st x13, *in ch2 sp [hdc, dc thru corner loop of Rnd 4 and ch2 sp, hdc], hdc in nxt st x16, repeat from * around, hdc in nxt st x2, slst to 2nd ch of beg ch2. Finish off.

I can be harangued here if you have any problems with the pattern.

    That's just pretty cool. I made a potholder once that used a similar technique and it was fun. I'm just having trouble figuring out where in my project queue something like this might fit. Agh! Too little time! :)
