Keeping Blizzard’s Orc Warm 2017!

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.

4mm hook

tapestry needle

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!
