'Petranese' explained

“Petranese” is the Black Sheep Crochet way of writing Image Overlay Crochet patterns. 

If you are not yet familiar with this system, you can study your free copy of  Image Overlay Crochet (IOC terminology ‘Petranese’ explained – Basics document with explanations, instructions and photo tutorials for some special stitches and techniques that is included in the pattern purchase.

Alternatively, check out our library of tutorials:

Video Tutorials

You can find all video tutorials for this and other released squares in my YouTube Channel for Black Sheep Crochet, where you can also subscribe for automatic notification when new videos are uploaded.

All videos are  in “Germanised British English US crochet terms Petranese”.

This means I am using Image Overlay Crochet abbreviations based on US crochet terminology, British/Australian speech and grammar for instructions and narrations, ‘spiced’ and ‘enriched’ with germanised expressions due to not being a native English speaker.

You will also need

  • scissors
  • darning needle to weave in ends
  • stitch markers* (some optional, some highly recommended; this could even be yarn scrap, a hair pin or a paperclip) – if you choose to use stitch markers, it will be good to have at least 4 different colours. And lots of them 😉

Reminder and Important Pattern Notes

Skipping stitches

For each special stitch you make in front, behind, around or in the front loop of another stitch from a previous round, you must leave the stitch behind or in front of the special stitch unworked (skip 1 stitch) unless instructed otherwise. A reminder to skip those stitches will be written under the special stitches for each round, not within the pattern instructions. If more than one special stitch has been worked and therefore more than one stitch needs to be skipped, a reminder is included in the pattern instructions. 

It is not necessary to skip a stitch when the special stitch is being worked over a stitch and therefore envelopes it, as it is for example the case with spike and split spike stitches, hdc-arounds or psc and psc-x.

While we skip a stitch behind a long front post stitch, a front post single crochet does not leave a lot of room for skipping (although technically we still skip at least the top loops of the stitch we fpsc around). 

The main objective here is to avoid unnecessary increases, so please keep that in mind.  

Ch1 and slip stitch

The ch1 at the beginning of the round does not count as a stitch and will be skipped when we slip stitch into the first stitch at the end of each round.

Keep the slip stitch that closes the round loose as it will replace the stitch below as the last stitch of the next round.

Stitch markers

The use of stitch markers* is optional and mainly intended to encourage and support less experienced crocheters. If finding free front loops is easy for you, you are likely to be quicker crocheting without stitch markers. 

    • Optionalstitch markers*placements are suggested for the adventurous beginner and may not be necessary for intermediate and advanced crocheters.
    • Suggestedstitch markers* placements are considered beneficial or essential for correct and easy stitch placement for all crochet levels.

If you follow the suggested stitch markers* placements, take the stitch markers out of the stitch or front loop after the special stitches have been worked, unless instructed otherwise.

Pattern

Underlined and coloured special stitches lead to a video tutorial related to it.  You can find a list of our growing tutorial library here.

a) Working the border with the same colour:

Finish Round 19 of your square with a ss into the first sc of the starting corner.

Round 20-a): Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, 37 sc in 3rd loop] 4 times

Ss into the first sc of the starting corner. – 39 sts per side plus ch2 corner space

Continue with Round 21.

b) Working the border with a different colour:

Finish Round 19 by fastening off and closing with an invisible join. 

Join the new colour, then work Round 20-a). 

If you join the new colour with a standing st, omit the ch1 at the beginning of Round 20.

Round 21: Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, 
sc in BLO, 15 sc, sc in BLO, 5 sc, sc in BLO, 15 sc, sc in BLO] 4 times.

Ss in the first sc of the starting corner. – 41 sts plus ch2 corner space per side

Optional stitch marker placement: 

  • Colour A/red in the 1st and 3rd FL of the sts from Round 20 
  • Colour B/bluein the 2nd and 4th FL of the sts from Round 20 

Note: Usually we work in the back loop of a stitch first. That leaves us a free FL in which to anchor a long stitch in a later round. In Round 22 though, you will be working in FLs of sts from Round 21, where in some of them you work in the FLO first and then in the BLO. To make it easier to find the correct FLs, please follow the suggested stitch marker placement instructions below and place the markers before starting the next round, even though they won’t appear as ‘free FL’ as they usually do yet. 

Suggested stitch marker placement:

  • Colour C/green in the 5th FL from the closest corner space and the 15th FL from the further corner of the sts from this round (Round 21) 
  • Colour D/orange in the 15th FL from the closest corner space and the 5th FL from the further corner of the sts from this round (Round 21)

If you want to take pretty pictures, you can block your square. 

There are different ways to block a square, which I will write about in a different post.

You can go thrifty or luxurious with your blocking tools* or a mixture of both. Either way, your squares will most likely look straighter with an increased stitch definition when they have been blocked.
