The "No Holes" Sc Square - Free Pattern

I have received an order for a baby blanket using squares with no holes.  Well, I couldn't find a pattern for such a square.  So, I made up my own.  You could use this square in several sizes and I have posted photos of what it looks like at each size.
 This is the square at 3 1/2 inches.  (Round 6)
 This is the square at 4 1/2 inches. (Round 8)
This is the square at 6 inches.  (Round 11)

  2. Thank you! I try to post a free pattern every now and then. I enjoy working on things and putting my ideas down on paper whenever I can. Unfortunately, life gets in the way sometimes. With 2 kids in High School, we're busy all the time. Thanks so much for following my blog! Your lovely comment means a lot to me!

  3. Shelly.. I'm begging you for help!! I've tried your no holes square multipe times and I can not get it right. This is the exact square style I need and I cant locate anything anywhere except here. Normally I'll watch a tutorial and I can see where I'm going wrong, but no such luck. When you join at the end of each row are you skipping a stitch? It's DRIVING ME MAD! plus I'm a lefty which just complicates everything.

    1. Laurie, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I'm having internet connection troubles. When you join at the end of the row, you slip stitch in the beginning chain 1. I'm not skipping any stitches. I hope this helps.

  6. Hello Shelly, I randomly came across your wonderful pattern I have been trying many no hole solid squares, but did not like the very obvious line of chain going up along the square. Thank you so much for being so generously sharing this lovely pattern.
