Cathedral Motif - Granny Square Crochet - Free Pattern

I recently pinned the lovely Cathedral Motif Granny Square to my Crochet Pinboard and akaCinders a fellow crafter mentioned the post was in Russian... and well, she doesn't read Russian. With the idea in mind to help other American or English reading crafters ;) put this pattern to work for them, I looked at the sites chart and translated it into English crochet directions.

Please let me know if you have any questions as you work this up, I have done my best to explain the steps as you go. In time I may add step by step pictures but in an effort to get this ball rolling for others who want it here you go :).

Cathedral Motif - Granny Square

Trivet layout :) 



Worked with H Hook holding 2 threads through out

Worked with H hook holding one thred through out.
Special Stitch:

Bobble Stitch: YOH (yarn over hook), insert insert hook into
next stitch, YOH and pull through loop, YOH, pull through 2 loops,
*YOH, insert hook into next stitch, YOH and pull through loop, YOH,
pull through 2 loops, repeat once from*, YOH, pull through all 4 loops on hook.

What I used:

- Worsted Weight Cotton -

Brown/Tan motifs were made holding one thread - H hook was used I suggest using a smaller hook when       using only one worsted weight thread
Green/White motifs were made holding two threads together - H hook was used

- Size H Hook 8.5MM

Starting with Brown or Green (or whatever color you want :))

Row 1:  Chain 7, slst in 1st chain (making a ring)

Row 2:  *Chain 3, dc 3, ch 3, sc 1*(all into the center) repeat 3 more times around, SlSt 3 in the first Chain 3 of the row.

Row 3:  *Chain 3, Bobble Stitch (BS), chain 3, scin top of ch 3 from prior row, chain 2, sc in top of next chain 3* repeat 3 more times around. FO

Change yarn color to light tan or White (or whatever color you like :))

Row 4:  Chain 1 in any of the chain 2 sections from prior row, Dc 1 into center *Chain 4, Slst in top of BS, chain 4, Dc 1 into center, chain 2, Dc 1 into center* repeat 2 more times, chain 4 Slst in top of BS, chain 4, Dc 1 into center, chain 2, slst in top of 1st chain.

Row 5: *Sc 2 in chain 4 of previous row, skip one, Sc 2 in next chain 4,  Dc 4 in chain 2 Chain 3, Dc 4 in same chain 2 * repeat 4 times, slst in 1st sc of row, Fasten Off.

My single thread squares measure 3 inches square and the double threaded squares are 3 1/4 inch square.

Make 4 (or however many you like :)), stitch squares together in whatever pattern you like and add your own embellishing edge! :)

Enjoy! :) ♥ Dawn

  4. Did I miss how many skeins? Maybe a ratio of dark to light? And how many squares (of the dark color) can be made per skein?

    1. Hi vidu - I'm not sure if there's anyone you can ask, are you on ravelry? Or any crochet group forum? Others may have pointers on how to work this up. I have a laundry list of projects at the moment and I plan to get back to trying video tutorials but it will most likely still be a bit yet. That's probably not the answer you were hoping for, but I hope it helps some!
