Jan Eaton: willow granny square tutorial

Jan Eaton  has written several of the most popular books among crocheters, and are also translated into Spanish. As we have said on occasion there are hundreds of reasons to make a square granny, she has compiled 200 in his book "200 crochet for blankets, quilts and tapestries" or " 200 blocks crochet " if you need to. We miss indications of the size of the grounds. Although this depends on the thickness of the needle and thread, you can say what you have drawn needle and measuring, whiners who we are ... because then  we what we love is tun-ear reasons. Today we are going to tell you how and why we do it .
willow granny square
With this pattern we have made a step by step with images:
The original pattern is shown on the right in the picture above. At every turn I'll describe how to make the original pattern first, and we have done larger second. Color changes are your decision. We've changed the colors with which we started the show because the pink top image is very saturated in the photos ... You start well with magic ring or 6 chain stitches to form the ring.
Row 1 : 3 ch and 15 high points, close with dwarf point (16 pa), or 
Crocheting club version :  4 ridges and high points 15 doubles, close to crochet (16 pad)
Turn 2 : 4 ch (= 1 + 1 chain stitch high point), 1 tr, 1 ch ... unite with crochet.
Crocheting club version :  . 5 ch (= 1 + 1 point high double chain stitch), 1PAD, 1 ch ... unite with crochet  In this case, as you can see in the sample on the left of the picture above, is doing very draft high double points if you like what you leave so, we turn 2, in the end we made ​​as in the original pattern. In the next picture you can also see what I just discussed:
Row 3 : 3 ch on a high point of turn 2 (= 1 high point), 2 dc in space 1 chain stitch of previous row, 1PA, 2PA, 1 tr ... unite with crochet
Crocheting club version : 4 double chain stitches on a high point or high point (which have decided to do) from the previous round (= 1 point high double), 2 pad in the space of 1 chain stitch, 1PAD, 2 pad, 1PAD ... unite with crochet.
Row 4 : 1 chain stitch, one low point at the same point 5 ch
Crocheting club Version :  1 chain stitch, one low point at the same point, 6 ch
We continue with the Row 4
Having made ​​the 5 ch, 1 dwarf unite to the 5th cad point counting from the needle (do not forget that the one in the needle does not count). Jump two points and make a low point as you see in the picture below. Still, 2 ch, skip two points, 1 point lower, ch 3, skip two points * 1 point low, 5 ch, unite with the 5th needle chain stitch from 1 crochet, skip 2 points and 1 point lower. 2 ch, skip two points, 1 point lower, 3 ch, skip 2 points, 1 point lower, 2 ch, skip two points * . Repeat from *  and unite with dwarf the first low point.  See image below. Original pattern:
Crocheting club version : once made ​​6 ch, 1 dwarf join the 6th cad point counting from the needle (do not forget that the one in the needle does not count). Jump two points and make a low point  as you see in the picture above.    3 ch, skip two points, 1 point below, 4 ch, skip two points,  * 1 point low, 6 ch, unite with the 6th wale from the needle 1 crochet, skip 2 points and 1 point lower. 3 ch, skip two points, 1 point below, 4 ch, skip 2 points, 1 point lower, 3 ch, skip two points * . Repeat from * and unite with dwarf the first low point. 
Row 5 :  1 dwarf point in the first ring of 5 ch. 3 ch (= 1 high point), 4 pa more, ch 3, 5PA. * 1 point lower in the next ch 2 space. 5 dc in the next space 3cad, 1PB in next ch 2 space. 5PA 5cad inside the ring, ch 3, 5PA *  repeat from * ... In the end 1 join dwarf 1st 3 ch initial point.
Crocheting club Version:  1 dwarf point in the first ring of 6 ch. 4 ch (= 1 point high double), 4 pad more, ch 3, 5pad. * 1 low point in the next 3 ch space. 7 pad in the next space 4cad, 1PB in the next 3 ch space. 5pad 6cad inside the ring, ch 3, 5pad *  repeat from *   ... In the end 1 join the 1st dwarf the initial point 4 ch.
As you see it is not just enough to change a high point by one double high, sometimes it works ?, but in this case we must also be adapting the number of chain stitches to fit. Trial, error, is the way. 
Row 6 : In any space Spin 3 ch 5: * 1 point lower, 3 ch, 1PB. 5 ch, 1 high point low of the previous lap. 3 ch, 1 bp in the third highest point in the next 5,  right in the middle. 3 ch,  1 high point low of the previous round, 5 ch * repeat from * and unite with crochet.
Crocheting club version:  In any space Spin 3 ch 5:  * 1 point lower, 3 ch, 1PB. 6 ch, 1 high point low of the previous lap. 4 ch, 1 bp in the fourth highest point of the 7 integuments,  right in the middle. 4 ch,  1 high point low of the previous round, 6 ch *  repeat from * and unite with crochet.
Row 7 : One dwarf in the space of 3 ch corner point. 3cad, 2 double crochets, 2 ch, 3PA  * 5PA in space 5cad, 3PA in space 3cad, 3PA in 3cad space, 5 dc in the next. In the corner: 3PA, 2CAD, 3PA * . Repeat from * and unite with crochet.
We are going to be showing how is the difference in size, in the following sample image on the left is the original pattern with lap 7 completed (14 cm. And made needle 4, clear plastic!). The right one is our sample completed lap 5.
One dwarf in the space of 3 ch corner point. 4cad, 2 points higher doubles, 2 ch, 3pad.  *  6 pad in the space of 6cad, 4pad in space 4cad, 4pad in space 4cad, 6pad in the next. In the corner: 3pad, 2CAD, 3pad *  . Repeat from * and unite with crochet. How big is the sample completed lap 7 ?, 19cm. While the original pattern as we have said are 14cm., Both with a needle 4, and loose point.
In the original pattern still it makes a return more than low. We are developing a blanket with the original in which we added a high point around (18cm.).
The way to unite the granny squares is called Flat Braid , here is the original English: priscillas crochet.Flat Braid pdf , and this entry is translated into Spanish:  crocheting club. join granny squares . Many people seem cumbersome, it may be, but looks good. You only have to do 3 ch and low, leaving a non - woven point. The most important thing is that the corners have to be like in the image on the left. source source
