Dutchy Too by Ineke Mooijenkind

So, so sorry on the delay for this week’s squares. Seems the holidays got the best of us! We’re all scrambling to get all our Christmas preparations done so it’s not surprising that something was bound to go awry! Anyway, we’re back on track so let’s just get right to it.

You’re already are well acquainted with the designer for the week, Ineke Mooijenkind.  And if you’ve finished “Dutchy” you’re also somewhat acquainted with “Dutchy Too”. The squares are very similar so it should be smooth sailing to finish up this one. And of course, we have another Bonnie Barker video to accompany it! You’ll find all the links below.

Important Additional Pattern Info

Don’t forget you will need to add an extra three rounds to your square to achieve the final 48 st/side count which is necessary for joining. You can find the instructions for all squares here. Translations for these additional rounds can be found here.    The extra rounds will vary slightly from week to week because the squares vary in ending stitch counts so be sure to follow the directions for each square.

This square ends with a 40 stitch count on each side.  You will need to add an additional 8 stitches per side for a total of 48 stitches per side.

Rnd 1:  Begin with a standing sc (stsc) in any corner chsp. Ch2, sc in same corner, sc in each of the next 40 sts. *(Sc, ch2, sc) in corner chsp. Sc in each of the next 40 sts* repeat from * to * 3 more times. Join with slst to beginning stsc. (42 sts, ch2 per side)
