Wrapped In Jamie – Square 5 – Manners And Chess Pattern

Welcome to week 6 of the Wrapped In Jamie CAL, where you are going to learn how to crochet Square 5 – Manners And Chess.

There is a new stitch collection, now called the Outlandish Stitch Compendium, with

  • a list of abbreviations for the most common stitches we use,
  • pre-requisite stitches and how to make them,
  • how to count stitches and rounds,
  • stitch variations,
  • working stitches in front, back and 3rd loops and ideas for alternatives if you don’t like the latter,
  • a breakdown of angular stitch abbreviation and how to work them, (with step-by-step samples), 
  • front- and back-post stitches explained
  • and three different kinds of 2-together stitches we regularly use in almost all squares of this CAL

There will also be an updated Introduction – now called Wrapped In Jamie – The Trailer – which will be available very soon.

Both resources can be found free of charge in the shop shortly

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, @black_sheep_crochet 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 peachy or soft pink for this square.

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

Jamie: solid square – grey; mixed square – grey for the inside square, green for the square border

Claire: solid square – mint; mixed square – mint for the inside square, light brown for the square border

Scotland: solid square – sea grass/blue/heather (depending on your kit); mixed square – sea grass/blue/heather for the inside square, dark brown 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.

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 stitch] 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, 3 sc across] 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, (sc, sc in BLO) twice, sc] 4 times..

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

Hint for Rounds 13/14, 19/20 (and 29/30 of the Border): 

If you find making sc in the 3rd loop (in Rounds 14, 20 and 30) difficult, here are some ideas on how to make it easier:

  • you could use a bigger hook to work Rounds 13, 19 and 29, 
  • make an effort to work the sc very loosely in this round, 
  • use a smaller hook for Rounds 14, 20 and 30 or 
  • make hdc instead of sc in Rounds 13, 19 and 29. If you choose this option, please be aware that making hdcs may alter the height of the round and that you should work Rounds 13, 19 and 29 in the same manner in all squares.

Special Stitches in Round 13:

Hint for Round 19:

The next round will be sc in 3rd loop, so work Round 19 according to your preferred option outlined in the Outlandish Stitch Compendium and above (before Round 13)

Round 19: Ch1, [(sc, ch2, sc) into the ch2 corner space, 35 sc across] 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.

You can find the Border Pattern here:

Wrapped In Jamie Border Pattern

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, 37 sc in 3rd loop] 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
