Sirkel i kvadrat… Circle in a square...


ETA: You can find an all English version of the pattern here.

Her skal eg prøve å skrive ned ei oppskrift. Det finst sikkert mange forskjellige måtar å lage bestemorruter som dette, men her er min metode. Håper de gir beskjed dersom noko er vanskeleg å skjøne. (Heklespråket er lettare å lese enn å skrive ned… )

I will try to translate this to English. Please let me know if something is difficult to understand. I’m using US terminology.
ch = chain, st = stitch, ss = slip stitch, dc = double crochet
(Follow the link to pages explaining the stitches.)
2009_06030071 2009_06030072
Start: Hekle 5 lm, samle til ein ring m 1 kjm i første lm.
Start: make 5 ch, join with ss into a ring.
2009_06030074
1. runde: 4 lm (=1 st,1 lm), 1 st + 1 lm 11 g. Slutt m 1 kjm i 3. lm. Til saman 12 st.
1st round: 4ch (=1dc,1ch), 1dc + 1ch 11 times. Join with ss in 3rd ch. 12 dc.
2009_06040081 2009_06030076
2. runde: Start i ei av lm-buene. 3 lm (=1 stav), 1 st, 1 lm, *2 st, 1 lm* i resten av lm-buene. Slutt m 1 kjm i 3. lm. Til saman 12 grupper m 2 st.
2nd round: Start in one of the ch spaces. 3 ch (= 1dc), 1dc, 1ch, *2dc, 1ch* in the remaining ch spaces. Join with ss in 3rd ch. 12 groups of 2 dc.
2009_06030077 2009_06030078
3. runde: Start i ei av lm-buene. 3 lm (=1 st)+ 2 st i lmb, 1 lm, *3 st,1 lm* i resten av lm-buene. Slutt m 1 kjm i 3. lm. Til saman 12 grupper m 3 st.
3rd round: Start in one of the ch spaces. 3 ch (= 1dc), 2dc in ch space, 1ch, *3dc, 1ch* in the remaining ch spaces. Join with ss in 3rd ch. 12 groups of 3 dc.
2009_06030081 2009_06030084
2009_06030085 2009_06030086
4. runde: Start i ei lm-bue. 4 lm (=1 dst), 1 dst, 3 lm, 2 dst, (=1. hjørne), *1 lm, (2 st, 1 lm, 2 st) i neste lm-bue, 1 lm, (2 st, 1 lm, 2 st) i neste lm-bue, 1 lm, 2 dst, 3 lm, 2 dts, (=2. hjørne)**, gjenta * til ** 2 gonger, 1 lm, (2 st, 1 lm, 2 st) i dei neste to lm-buene, 1 lm, slutt med 1 kjm i 4. lm.
4th round: Start in one of the ch spaces. 4ch (= 1 tr), 1tr, 3ch, 2tr, (=1st corner), *1ch, (2dc,1ch,2dc) in next ch space, 1ch, (2dc,1ch,2dc) in next ch space, 1ch, (2tr, 3ch, 2tr) (=2nd corner)**, repeat * to ** 2 times, 1ch, (2dc, 1ch, 2dc) inthe next two ch spaces, 1ch. Join with ss to 4th ch.
Eg likar samlebandsmetoden, så eg heklar opp ein haug med sirklar før eg tar siste runda.
I like the assemblyline method so I prefer to make a lot of circles before I start the 4th round.
2009_06030080
Eg heklar firkantane saman på siste runda. Prøver å vise det her. Moonstitches har også ei veldig fin forklaring på denne metoden. (Ho heklar saman sekskantar, men prinsippet er det same).
I join the squares in the last round, like I show here. Moonstitches have a great tutorial for joining hexagons. It’s mostly the same. The squares are joined together in the corners and at two places on the sides.
2009_06030087
Start i eit hjørne. Hekle 2 dst, 1. lm, 2. lm heklast gjennom hjørnebua på forrige firkant, hekle 3. lm vanleg.
Start in a corner. Crochet 2tr, 1ch,next ch through the corner of the other square, 1ch, 2tr. (The first corner is done)
2009_060300882009_06030089
På sidene heklast lm mellom st saman med forrige firkant.
Side: 1ch,(2dc, 1ch through 1ch on other square, 2dc), 1ch (2dc, 1ch through 1ch on other square, 2dc), 1ch
2009_06030090 2009_06030091
Neste hjørne: Hekle første lm, andre lm heklast saman med firkanten til høgre, tredje lm heklast saman med firkanten rett over (sjå på bildet),
Next corner (where you will join square to the square to the right and the one above): 2tr, 1ch, 1ch through corner of square to the right, 1 ch through corner of the square above, 2 tr.
2009_06030093
På langsida heklast lm mellom stavane saman. I neste hjørne hekle 1 lm, 2. lm heklast gjennom hjørnet i ruta over (sjå bildet). Hekle resten som vanleg.
Do the next side as the first. In the next corner you crochet 1 ch through the corner of the square above. Finish the round as in pattern.

Var dette forståeleg? Håpar det :)
Hope you understand this:)

  2. Fin forklaring og nydelig teppe! En gang skal det nok bli et firkantet bestemorteppe på meg også, men det er vel lurt å få ferdig de to sekskantteppene jeg har begynt på først..

  14. Så fine lapper! Sånne må jeg prøve meg på!
    Veldig kjekt med god forklaring;-)

    Ha en fin dag!

    SvarSlett
  15. men har ikke satt deg opp som oppskrift. Den et litt mangelfull for å bli godkjent som det. Jeg skjønte ikke helt oppskriften i monteringen (lm heklast saman med firkanten til høgre, 3. lm heklast saman med firkanten over). Hva menes med hekles sammen? Skal jeg ta kroken ut av masken og putte kroken inn i hjørnet på firkanten den skal monteres sammen med?? Ikke så viktig nå, jeg fant en annen oppskrift, men det ble ikke like fint som din, da :o)
    Jeg er hekleamatør, så det er sikkert bare jeg som er treg
    Ha en fin kveld videre!

  23. been a lot of time looking for those explanations. I wanted to know how to join granny squares without sewing them together. I almost get it on my own but those and the tutorial are the best instructions i have found till this moment. Thank you. You make me write the first comment of mi life. will let you know if i at last can finish project. kisses

    SvarSlett
  24. fantastic work just love it, have tried out a few of these and I can get the first three rounds done and the fourth but do not know how to start to join them. Do i begin with a square and a circle or two squares and a circle, am confused

    SvarSlett
  25. Start by making one square. Then join a new circle to that square.

    1. Jeg er amatør og må ha ting inn med teskje. Hekler du rundt den første ruta/rundingen først før du begynner å hekle sammen?

      Slett
    2. Du heklar første rute heilt ferdig (med kvit kant). Når du heklar 4. runde på neste rute heklar du saman med den første ruta.

  27. Yeah!! Thank you so much for a lovely tutorial! I am beginning crochet and love learning any new way to add colour to my life!! Loving this and trying it as this very moment. Please forgive the novice, but just wondering about the 4th round where it says "1tr"; did you mean us double like before? Or is it a bigger stitch? I'll just try and see where I go... Thanks again for showing this :-D

  40. This looks great and yummy! It made me want to go back to crocheting. One question. How big is the blanket supposed to be? And what size of the crochet hook would I need?

    SvarSlett
  41. I used 4 mm crochet for this. You could make it as big as you want. My blanket is 110 x 150 cm, big enough for an after dinner nap on the sofa...

    SvarSlett
  42. I'm having a bit of difficulty understanding the instructions. I haven't crocheted for so long plus the terminology is completely foreign to me since I used to crochet in Russia. Anyway, can you please explain to me how to read the 1st round?

  46. Thank you so much for the very clear instructions. I'd started the similar circle-in-a-square when I found your pattern, and in the end I made a hybrid circle-flowers in the square-snow motif:)! I used it for a quick project, but I'm in love with the way your blanket looks, and will have to make one myself soon.

    SvarSlett
  47. I love this blanket!... and I want to make one :) How many skeins of sport weight white yarn did you need?
    Thank you for sharing your pattern

    SvarSlett
  48. I never really counted how many balls of white I used - had to buy more in the process.
    But I've figured out that maybe (with the edging) half of the yarn I used was white. Then I have used 600 grams of the white yarn. My blanket has 192 squares.

  53. mange mange tak for den gode vejledning! jeg er netop gået igang med dette, men jeg har lige et spørgsmål. Hvordan får du dit tæppe til at blive så pænt og fladt ? jeg synes mit bliver så buet (ligesom den første firkant du har vist her).
    Jeg er ny udi hækling, så jeg er ikke helt med på hvordan man gør det helt fladt ;)
    tak !:)
    (bare sig hvis jeg skal skrive det på engelsk i stedet)

    SvarSlett
  54. Hvis du gjer som i oppskrifta skal det bli flatt etterkvart. Firkantane vil strekke på hverdanre. Eg damper mitt teppe til slutt (med strykejern og vått klede). Det hjelper også. Håper du forstår :)

    SvarSlett

  61. Takk for god inspirasjon. Jeg har heklet et oldemorteppe, men din sammehekling. Når du helker sirkel i kvadrat, hvor gjør du av endene underveis? Syr du dem fast eller hekler du de inn noe sted? Solveig Iversen

    SvarSlett
  62. Eg syr inn endane etterkvart. Eg synest ikkje det blir fint å hekle dei inn når mønsteret har hopp slik som det er i sirklane. Passar også på å ta nokre runder med trådfesting undervegs i heklinga, slik at det ikkje er 10 000 endar å feste til slutt...

    Nydelig teppe, og takk for at du deler oppskrift!

    Eg har eit spm. korleis får du så tydelige stjerner mellom rutene?
    Der du hekler rutene inn i kvarandre, stramer du ekstra der, eller held du same fastheten over alt?

    SvarSlett
  88. Stjernene kom automatisk når eg hekla rutene saman. Ekstra bonus! Eg heklar med ca samme fastheit heile vegen, passar berre på at ikkje løkkene vert altfor store i hjørna.

  99. Wow there are LOTS of comments, I had to scroll down and down! It is a beautiful pattern, thanks so much for sharing and for the effort in preparing the visual tutorial; it makes it SO much easier.

    SvarSlett
  100. This is my first blanket and I LOVE the pattern. I spent a while researching and when I found this one, I knew it was it :) Since I haven't done this before, I'm curious about the finishing part. Do you block each square separately and then attach them or do you block the entire blanket when it's done? Thanks!

    SvarSlett
  101. I do not block each square separately. When the hole blanket is done I use a wet cloth and my iron to press out any bumps etc.

    SvarSlett
  102. Con tu permiso voy a copiar la idea. Es súper linda esta manta... y el paso a paso está clarísimo...

    What a wonderful pattern, thank you sooooo much for translating into English.
    Its a wonderfully fast pattern and quite economical with the yarn. I'm 11 squares into my current project but will make this next and blog link back to you - you are a VERY kind person and I wish you every success!

    SvarSlett
  104. This is such a wonderful blanket, I'd love to be able to make it! I'm a little confused about the first round though when it comes to making the flowers, do you think you could phrase it differently? I'm not sure what you mean by 4ch (=1dc,1ch), 1dc + 1ch 11 times. Join with ss in 3rd ch. 12 dc. First of all, how is 4 chain (=1dc, 1ch)? And do you then alternate that with the 1dc +1ch or do you just carry on that way? Sorry if I'm not clear :/ I'm a beginner and I'm still figuring things out! Any advice would be fantastic, I'd love to make this!

    SvarSlett
  105. Hello Emma! I'll try to explain it better to you. :)
    The point of the first round is to make 12 dc with 1 ch spaces in between. But since you are starting at the bottom, the first dc will have to be 3 ch (to get up to the height of the other dc you will be making. Add to the 3 ch the 1 ch space - and you have 4 ch = 1dc+1ch. The rest of the round you'll only make 1dc + 1ch.
    Is that clearer?

    SvarSlett
  106. Hi Solveig! Ahh! I think so! So to begin with it's 3 ch into the space, *then* 1dc + 1ch and carry on from there? Is that right?

    SvarSlett
  107. Ok, just an update - I *totally* get what you mean now! I don't know how I couldn't see it before. 4 chain stitches into the space is the same as 1dc+1ch to start with, then after you've got that you can carry on with the 1dc+1ch as you now have the height. I tried it some other way before I realised this and it came out looking a bit wonky, but after I tried it the way you meant it it came out great! I now have one perfect circle and one wonky one :P

    Thanks Solveig, for both your help and for this beautiful pattern! I can't wait to see how my blanket turns out :)

  127. Hi Solveig. I love this blanket but am quite inexperienced. I have made all of the circles, but just can't join the circles like you do.I hope you don't mind, but I have copied out the section I don't understand here:
    Start in a corner. Crochet 2 dst, 1 ch, 2nd ch through hjørnebua on the previous square, crochet 3 lm normal.

    Start in a corner. Crochet 2tr, 1ch,next ch through the corner of the other square, 1ch, 2tr. (The first corner is done)

    Do I start this in the first original square, or in the circle I am joining?
    Many thanks from Liverpool!

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. Hi Liverpool!

      I'll try to help you :) First: Do not pay attention to the first two lines of the text you copied. [Start in a corner. Crochet 2 dst, 1 ch, 2nd ch through hjørnebua on the previous square, crochet 3 lm normal.] - That's Google's attemt at translating my Norwegian text, and they don't do it well.

      Just use the English translation I've written :)

      When all your circles are ready, you start by making a square of the first circle. Then you start on a new circle. You will allways start a new square in a new circle.

      "Start in a corner" - you'll make a corner first,
      "Crochet 2tr," - The first tr wil be 4ch (as in the first square)
      etc. etc...

      I hope this made it a little clearer for you.

      Greetings from Norway!

  129. Hi Solveig,
    Is this bit in the new circle I am joining or in the first 'square' I have done?

    "Start in a corner" - you'll make a corner first,
    "Crochet 2tr," - The first tr wil be 4ch (as in the first square)
    etc. etc...

    I am not sure how to join the circle and the square together in the chain spaces on the circle?
    Thanks agian,
    Liverpool Lynn

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. You will start in a new circle, making one of the corner first and joining it to a corner of the square. You join by putting your hook through the chain space of the square before making the ch. (look at the photos.)

  131. Hei Solveig. Jeg er en helt fersk nybegynner når det kommer til hekling, og jeg har nylig fullført min 13. bestemorrute av den vanlige sorten. I går skulle jeg se om jeg kunne finne tips om sammenhekling av lapper, og endte opp i bloggen din - hvor jeg fant denne oppskriften. Jeg ble superentusiastisk, og vips ble min 14. rute til. Jeg syns disse rutene var helt utrolig søte, og jeg elsker måten de er satt sammen på, hvordan "hjørnene" danner stjerner. Tusen, tusen takk for en lettfattelig og enkel oppskrift! :)

    Vil du se resultatet, så finner du min første rute etter din oppskrift her:

  133. Hello! Thanks for the great pattern. My question is - when you're doing the final joining round, do you attach each square at a time then cut the wool or can you join them all together in one go? If so, how? I don't know how to tie all the ends in (I've been adding a square, cutting, then adding another, etc) Thanks!

    SvarSlett

    1. You'll have to attach one square at the time. Unfortunately there is no way to them in one go...

  149. Hello! I followed your tutorial to crochet my first circle, so thank you! I'm a little confused on the 4th round though. I understand the 2tr, 3ch, 2tr for the corners, but I'm not sure about the 2dc, 1ch, 2dc for the sides. I've done it, but it seems like there are too many stitches for that width. The edge of my square is rippled instead of straight. Is that correct? Or should it just be 2dc in each space, and 1ch between them?

    I know this is an old post, but it would be awesome if you could help!

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. The (2dc, 1ch, 2dc) go in the same 1ch-space from round three. You can see it in the photos.
      And the edge will have a slight ripple.That evens out eventually.

    I am really, really struggling with the instructions for the fourth round, join along. Do you join two squares at a time, then join the next? I just can't seem to understand how to do it :( Please help me :)

    SvarSlett
    Svar
    1. You will join a new square to the ones you have allready joined. The easiest way to join them is to first join a row of squares as wide as your blanket shall be.
      Then you start joining squares to the second row etc...
