La Quadrature du cercle (Squaring the circle) is a free pattern I designed to make a square in the round with a double-ended Tunisian crochet hook. Hence the name…
I created this free pattern in the frame of the “Tunisian blanket CAL” organized by KnitterKnotter, alias Arunima, in 2021. It’s a Tcal during which several Tunisian crochet designers all around the world publish instructions to make squares in Tunisian crochet throughout the year. At the end of the year all these squares are meant to be seamed together to make a big blanket. For more details about the Tcal, follow KnitterKnotter. She’s the host centralising all patterns created by the participating designers.
I’m opening the Tcal with my free pattern La Quadrature du cercle (Squaring the circle). I created a video to show how to make the first 4 rounds. The full instructions with a photo tutorial in pdf format are available for free on Ravelry and Payhip.
