Crochet Your Mood Blanket 2014 - March Square - Free pattern

Yes, it's time again for a new Square for March!

I was pondering what to do for this square. In the meanwhile I was working on a few other projects, My Watermelophant, a new spring flower project and my Color Explosion Ottoman.

I was watching the kids play and their inflatable ottomans were just bugging me. I don't like stuff with popular characters on it. I think it's ugggggly. But the kids like it and I can't stop other people from giving it to them. So I told Aoibhinn I will make a pretty rainbow cover. She wasn't to sure. But as soon as I finished it, she loved it! Now I have to make another one for the boy. Because he likes the lovely colours as well! And I have a few more requests, but I have to figure out supplies and price first before I can commit to orders.

I love it. It lights up the room by just sitting there!!!

But we're here for the March Square and it's a beauty!!

I will only do the first 3 rows in picture, as the rest of the square is the same as the Januari and Februari squares. This square has 1 row less, as row 3 is a double row.

I changed yarn, from Roma scheepjeswol to Stylecraft Special DK. I found this amazing woman who sells Stylecraft DK and New Fashion DK on Instagram and facebook. I ordered 24 skeins and am in love!!! It's so nice to work with! But I have to change hooksize now aswell.

So this square is made with Stylecraft Special DK and hook size 4.5mm. Square will measure 15cm/6" with my gauge. Please keep in mind, I crochet loose, so to get the same size you may have to go up a hook size.

Half DC or TR is only the first step of a DC/TR, you don't pull through last loop, you leave loop on hook until specified to pull through.
