"Hi Bev - it's Moda Vera Playful 100% superwash wool.  Both the crochet squares are made from it.  I have another colour to make up.  I like working with it."

No squares this weekend!

Unfortunately I didn't get any squares done this weekend despite my best intentions. I was roped into a fundraising charity garage sale for a women's domestic violence shelter and we raised over $1000 so it was still time well spent. I'll be making up for it this weekend though!You should see my donated stash though!  It's going to take me a while to power thorough it all :-)See More

"That's such a shame, Allison.....I know with some of the KAS patterns,and other patterns I find online, I have to add a few stitches, but like I said, I tend to have a firm tension. Unfortunately, I quite often unpick, but thankfully, due to…"

"I am not sure which pattern you are referring to, Allison. I tend to use a lot more stitches than that as I have a rather firm tension. I'm thinking it would also rely on the ply of yarn used. I would think to only have it 6" wide at the…"

I saw in Recent Activity that you were querying the number of stitches needed for a rib pattern from the Pattern Book. I don't know if you are referring to the 6 stitch one or the 2 stitch but yes, all rib patterns are very stretchy. I made a few of the 6 stitch for this theme recently and thinking like you I decided to use 33 stitches, forgetting that I would then need to slightly modify the pattern on the 'wrong' side. I ended up with a perfectly acceptable square but not the one illustrated. In the photo below the one on the left has 33 stitches and the rest 30. You do need to measure the length of the square whilst still on the needle as when you pull it out to 8" you find it's not as long as you thought. It is does actually work up very fast and is great for using up scraps as colour changes become a part of the pattern. Sorry to butt in but I hope this helps.
