Wrapped In Jamie CAL Square 2 – Sawny Pattern

Welcome to week  of the Wrapped In Jamie CAL, where you are going to learn how to crochet Square 2 – Sawny.

By now I presume you have read the Introduction page or Introduction info sheet and the Stitch Collection (free resources from the Shop) and made yourself familiar with the basic stitches used in the pattern as well as the anatomy of how the special stitches are written.

Both resources contain important information that will make your CAL easier to navigate.

Feel free to follow your own colourway and make your insides all the same colour or make them solid or mix and match insides and borders to your heart’s content. I would like for you to make this as much as possible your CAL project and I look forward to seeing your photos. Please tag me in any social media posts and use #wrappedinjamiecal or #desingedbyblacksheepcrochet so I can admire your work.

For those of you who asked for it, here are my recommendations for colour choices:

If you follow the Storyteller colourway, I recommend a natural or soft brown colour.

Using the yarn kits with six colours for the Diamond Kilt Claire 20, this would be my suggestion:

Jamie: solid square – medium brown; mixed square – medium brown for the inside square, dark brown for the square border

Claire: solid square – dusky rose; mixed square – dusky rose for the inside square, grey for the square border

Scotland: solid square – medium green; mixed square – medium green for the inside square, darkest green for the square border

(Some Scotland colourways contain a light heather, others a light or dark blue or a sea grass colour. The drawing considers those three options)

The Pattern

Begin with a Magic Circle. If you are unfamiliar with the MC or don’t want to use it and you don’t mind the hole in the middle of the square, you can start with ch 2 and crochet round 1 into the first ch.

Round 1: Ch1, [sc into magic circle, ch2] 4 times. Close your magic circle tightly.

Ss into the first sc to close the round (keep this ss loose as it will replace the sc below).

Tip: If you crochet over your loose tail, you can save yourself having to weave ends in later.

From here on, please make sure to find the first stitch, as it may sometimes be hidden by the second sc of the corner (sc, ch2, sc)

Round 2:

Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, sc in next st] 4 times.

Ss into the top of the first sc of the starting corner. – 3 sts per side plus ch2 corner space

Round 3:

Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, sc in BLO, sc, sc in BLO] 4 times.

Ss into the top of the first sc of the starting corner. – 5 sts per side plus ch2 corner space

Round 4:

Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, fphdc around the next st, dc in FLO of st 1 round below, sc, dc in FLO of st 1 round below, fphdc around next st] 4 times.

Ss into the top of the first sc of the starting corner. – 7 sts plus ch2 corner space per side

Tip: work the fphdc very lose, so you can work around it easier in Round 6

4.1- fphdc around indicated st 

4.2 – dc in FLO of st 1 round below (indicated)

4.3 sl st into the top of first st

Round 5: Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, sc across] 4 times.

Ss into the top of the first st. – 9 sts per side plus ch2 corner space

Round 6: Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, fphtr-2a-2b (around fphdc from Round 4), fphtr-2a-2b (around dc from Round 4), 5 sc, fphtr-2b-2b (around dc from Round 4), fphtr-2b-2b (around fphdc from Round 4] 4 times.

Ss into the top of the first st. – 11 sts per side plus ch2 corner space

Tip: the first stitch can sometimes be hidden behind the 2nd sc of the corner, so make sure to pull the corner to the side and only skip two stitches, not accidentally three.

6.1 – fphtr-2a-2b around indicated st (hdc)

6.2 – fphtr-2a-2b around indicated st (dc)

6.3 – 1 – skip 2 sts; 2 – sc in next st

Special Stitches in Round 9:

Tr-2b-1b/fpdc2tog – 2 stitches together with 1st leg = treble in FLO of st 2 behind and 1 round below and 2nd leg = fpdc around fphtr from previous round (Round 8)

Ss into the top of the first st. – 17 sts per side plus ch2 corner space

Tip: in the second half of the side (after the fpdc/tr-2a-1btog) the stitches are a bit tangled and it is easier to count back 4 stitches from the corner to find the next st to work into. Your 2nd st (sc in BLO) should be exactly above the sc in BLO from the previous round.

Round 19: Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, sc across {35 sc on each side this round}] 4 times.

Ss into the top of the first st. – 37 sts per side plus ch2 corner space

If you choose to use a different colour for the border, now is the perfect time to fasten off the first colour, weave in the tails and attach the new colour in any of the corners. If you are not intending to work the square border, skip to Round 20. If you want to crochet the square border, continue with that pattern now.

Changing colour for Round 20:

Although you could add the new colour in any way you wish, the neatest way is by using a standing sc. If you choose this method, omit the ch1 and the first sc at the beginning of Round 20 and continue with the ch2 after the standing sc.

Round 20: Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, sc in 3rd loop or bpsc across {37 sts on each side in this round}] 4 times.

Ss into the top of the first st or cut yarn and finish with an invisible join. – 39 sts per side plus ch2 corner space
