I love these colours Lesley and the patterns are beautiful :)

STANDOUT squares, Lesley!!

LOVE all the different patterns you have made, like Patricia, I am most intrigued by the bottom centre. Well done, you!!

Lovely work, Lesley. Beautiful.

Oh my goodness Lesley I just love them they remind me of Portugese tiles. 

A few years ago, I made squares from the Tunisian Crochet 4-triangle pattern that Sharon sent me, so I can't say that this is a new pattern for me.  However, the knitted version here is definitely New to Me :))

Here is my Not-so-New-to-Me TC version with a new-to-me colour - Pink :)))

And here is my definitely New-to-Me knitted version:

Good job Glo.  Now you have me going.  Do you have any instructions for the knitted versions?

Mili, I tried to find a pattern for the knitted version online, but no luck.  I'm not the greatest Googler, so maybe it's there and someone else can find it. 

They say ignorance is bliss, and in my case that's true!  I had no idea about stitch sizes or anything, so I just followed the same idea as the TC version.  If you measure an 8" square corner to corner, you find it's 11"  - so 5.5" to centre.

So ... I cast on enough stitches to make 5.5" (corner to centre) and decreased at the beginning of every other row until I had one stitch left.  Your last stitch will be K2tog.  The edge you have decreased on will be the outside edge of the square.  

Then I picked up stitches along the edge to the centre.  There's a name for that edge, I'm sure.  Can someone (Sharon) help me here?  I picked up the same number of stitches as I had had cast on, and worked the same way again. 

As before, I was left with 1 stitch (after K2tog) and picked up stitches to work the third triangle ... and then the fourth. 

Here is where you can switch up.  As I was working my 4th triangle, I was knitting one stitch from the first triangle and slipping the last stitch of the 4th triangle over that stitch to join the pieces.  However, you could just knit as the other 3 and stitch the seam when you finish.

I know this is a terrible way to explain something, and I'm sure I've confused you terribly.  If you can manage to figure out enough of my gibberish to know what questions to ask me, I will do my very best to clarify for you.  Or ... if you or someone else can find a knitted version online, that would be great - and much more helpful than myself ... hahaha

Your directions sound pretty easy to follow, even for a beginner knitter like me.

I think there is a technical term for the edge where you pick up stitches.   It is called the "left edge".   (giggle)   

Actually, I guess that would only work if you are a right-handed knitter, who does decreases on the (tech term) "right edge".

Oh, dear, I think all the pink has messed with my brain.

ROFL ... Sharon, thank you for helping to clarify.  Those tricky techie terms trip me up every time ... xo

Wow, Glo!! You really are the 'pattern queen'.

These look GREAT!!

Gosh isn't the effort everyone is putting into New producing some spectacular squares.   I'm agog!   (full of interest + excitement)!! ❤️

Yes, it seems that most work is not only new to the crafter but new to the rest of us as well! This was certainly a super idea for a theme.
