The Pretender

I designed this pattern when composing a blog post explaining how you almost never have to do starting chains - you know the traditional chain 3 at the start of rounds?  Well it's not just regular stitches you can replace with false stitches.  Have a read of the post here if you want to learn a bit more about seamless crochet. 

And then use The Pretender pattern to practice!  Winning all round. 

You can use any yarn of any weight and fibre, and the appropriate hook size. Matching gauge is not important.

I used 8 ply cotton yarn and a 5 mm hook. My versions of The Pretender are 9” across.

The Pretender

The Pretender crotchet square is an excellent excercise in perfecting the false stitch and the standing stitch. Prior to making the square I wasn't proficient in making those stitches and tended to revert back to chain stitches. Now I have the confidence to make the stitches and the difference to the look of the project is significant. Thanks again Shelley.
