You can learn more about each crochet stitch below, so you’ll be ready to crochet this ghost square as soon as possible.

Double Crochet Stitch (dc): 

  • Wrap the yarn over (YO) the hook, insert the hook into the specified st.
  • YO the hook again, draw the yarn through the st, so there are 3 loops on the hook
  • YO the hook again draw it through 2 loops, so there are 2 loops on the hook
  • YO the hook, draw it through the final 2 loops.

Chain Stitch (ch):

A simple crochet stitch that often forms the foundation of what crochet stitches are worked into during projects.

  • Make a slip knot.
  • Insert the hook into the slip knot point first, bring yarn over the shaft of the hook from back to front and grab it with the throat of the hook.
  • Draw hooked yarn through the slip knot and onto the hook. This movement will make one chain stitch.
  • Repeat steps two and three until you have the desired number of stitches for a pattern. One loop will remain on hook.

How to Read a Corner to Corner Chart

C2C charts (aka graph patterns, or pixel graph) are read by starting in the bottom-right corner then by working up to the top-left corner, increasing. Continue by alternating the start from left to right until you reach the corner at which you will start decreasing your squares. The “S” on the chart means “Start”, meaning that is the square you should begin with. You will then work in the direction the arrows point, back and forth following the pattern until the square is finished.

    Hi!
    1st. I just want to say. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern.
    I have made my “mock up” and gave it to my grandkitten- who is also in love with it- and am now working on my more “expensive yarn” blanket.

    My question is this- on row 37 it says “WS” and for the life of me, I cannot figure out what that means. I am probably missing something super obvious. But I am very new to crochet and am curious as to what it means.

    Thanks in advance for any information!

    1. Hi! It means wrong side (ws) or right side (rs) of a pattern. I originally had that in the pattern and removed it and forgot to take that one out. Thanks for finding it!

      Krista

  2. Your row 23 is written wrong. Figured it out when i made the corners.

  3. Hi – About to finish this project! One suggested edit – – – Row 23 should be (Gray) x 4, (White) x 13, (Gray) x 6 (23 squares)

    As written: Row 23: (Gray) x 4, (White) x 11, (Gray) x 1, (White) x 1, (Gray) x 6 (23 squares). That (Gray) x 1 in the middle is out of place. I followed it at first, but it’s not aligned to the picture-pattern. I ripped it out and went with (White) x 13 – – – and it’s correct.

    1. Thanks, Meagan,

      I just fixed that typo! Thanks for letting me know, and happy crocheting. 🙂

      -Krista
