Pattern Star and Cross crochet square

Materials: You can use any yarn with matching hooksize

I used Cosy fine by Durablyarn, 58% cotton, 42% polyacryl, 50gr/105m with a Clover Amour hook 4mm and my square measures 14x14cm.

Abbreviations (US terms):

RS right side

WS wrong side

beg beginning

st  stitch/stitches

slst slip stitch

ch chain

sc single crochet

hdc half double crochet

dc double crochet

tr treble crochet

dtr double treble crochet

tr2tog treble crochet 2 together:

*Yarn over the hook twice, insert your hook into the next stitch, yarn over the hook and pull up 1 loop. Yarn over the hook and pull through 2 of the loops on the hook. Yarn over the hook and pull through 2 of the loops on the hook, skip slst,* Repeat from * to *1 more time. You now have 3 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

1ch-sp 1chain-space
