Sincerity Square Pattern Information

Materials Needed

For each square, you will need the following:

  • 38.5 yards of light worsted yarn (see color breakdown below)
  • G/4.0mm hook 
  • Tapestry needle(optional, for weaving in ends
  • Scissors

Gauge 

The Gauge for this sweater is 7” across for one finished square. 

Yardage Needed

Here is a breakdown of the estimated yardage you will need in each color. The square shown is done in Lion Brand’s Touch of Linen Yarn, and the colors in that line are noted in parentheses:

Color 1(Indigo)- 6.5 yards needed

Color 2(Dijon)- 5 yards needed

Color 3(Terra Cotta)-12 yards needed

Color 4 (Clay)-15 yards needed

Skill Level 

The skill level for this project is intermediate. While most of the square is at the beginner level, round 4 uses a stitch combination called the box bead stitch(which you can learn with this tutorial). The magic circle is also used to start the square, although you can substitute that with a small loop of chain stitches if desired. 

Abbreviations Used

  • ch – chain (yarn over, pull loop through)
  • esc-extended single crochet(insert hook, yarn over, draw up a loop, yarn over, and draw through the first loop. Yarn over and draw through two loops).
  • SS-slip stitch(insert hook, yarn over, draw up a loop through the work and through the loop on your hook)
  • Slcl-slanting cluster stitch(yo, bring hook around and under the dc, working between the dc and the previous stitch, yo again and bring the hook back to the front of the work. Repeat 2x.) yo again and draw that loop through 6 loops on your hook. yo once more and draw the yarn through the last remaining 2 loops to complete the slanting cluster) 
  • ST/STS – stitch/stitches

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is done in US terms.
  • In rounds where stitches are worked at chain spaces, you may work the stitches into the chain spaces or into the appropriate chain itself.
