So I found out about Blizzard calling for people who crochet and knit to send them 6×6 squares to help decorate the orc!
Find out more here!
I’m so very excited about this and went home after finding out and made my square ASAP!
Big thank you u/tunzor on reddit’s crochet subreddit for letting us know about it!
This is just a quick tutorial on how I did it.
What I used:
For this particular square I used 4 different shades of blue and grey red heart and I love this yarn! yarn.
graph paper and pencil (or if you want to cheat a little you can google ‘perler’ in with the type of picture you want EX: “World of Warcraft perler”) They usually have free graph patterns that works well using this style of crochet.
You will need to know how to:
Work a waistcoat stitch or knit stitch.
Work in rounds
Carry your yarn behind
Change colors using the waistcoat stitch.
I have written a tutorial on how to do this stitch!
First I started out with a chain of 50 and made a circle.
I went up 5 rows in a continuous circle before starting my pattern, and made sure I started on the 6th stitch so I would have enough room from the sides. I did not continue the pattern on the “back” side, so the pattern is on one side only.
After reaching your desired height (which for this project would be roughly 6 inches) You should have a tube:
(lets pretend this is a 6 inch tall tube)
Next you will squish it flat and sew it down:
After sewing down all 4 edges you should have your square with no ends to tie in!
Front and back:
I hope this help you!
