I am a visual learner, when I get stuck on a pattern I find it helpful to have a photo to reference for any tricky parts. I have assisted Claudia by putting together this photo tutorial for her Spring Pathways Square to anybody who also finds photos helpful. As always, you are encouraged to head over to our Facebook group if you have any questions, myself and the other designers will do our best to help. Don’t forget to share a photo of your square, we love to see all the colour combinations!
CLUSTER – *Yo, insert hook in ch-2 space indicated, pull up a loop, Yo, draw through 2 loops on hook: repeat from * once more, Yo, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
PUFF STITCH – Yo, insert hook in indicated stitch, pull up a loop, repeat 4 times in the same st, yo, pull through all 9 loops on hook, ch 1 to close.
• Ch at the start of each round does not count as a stitch, unless specified.
• Check that your square measured approximately 12″ across after the first couple of rows, if not adjust hook size as needed.
Row 1: ch 39, sc in second ch from hook and each chain across (38 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, slst FLO in each st across (38 slst)
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in BLO 2 rows previous in each st across (38 sc)
Row 4: Ch1, turn, sc in first st, ch3, skip 2 sts, sc in the next st, TURN, sc in each ch space and last st (cable made), TURN, Work behind the cable, sc in 2 skipped sts, *ch 3, skip cable and next 2 sts, sc in next sts, TURN, sc in each ch st, sl st in next st, TURN, Work behind the cable, sc in 2 skipped sts* rep across, sc in last sc. (12 cables)

Row 9: ch 1, turn, sc in the first st, *ch 2, skip 2 sts, (dc, ch 2, dc, ch 2) in next ch space, skip 2 sts, sc in next dc st* repeat between * to the end of the row. (6 V-sts – 7 sc)
Row 10: Ch 4 , turn, Skip 3 sts, *(cluster, ch 1) 3 times into ch 2 space between dc* skip 7 sts, repeat between * tr in last st (6 cluster groups)
Row 11: Ch1, turn, sc in top of tr and ch 1 from previous rnd, ch 1, *skip top of cluster, sc in next ch 1 space between clusters, ch 1* repeat between * across the row, sc in top st of ch 4. (38)
Row 12: Ch 3 (counts as a stitch), *dc in next ch 1 space, ch 1, skp next st* repeat across, dc in last st of previous row. (19 sc + ch 3 starting ch)
Row 13: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. (38)
Row 14-15: Repeat row 2-3 across
Row 16: Ch 4 (counts as a dc + 1 ch ), dc in the next st, skip 3 sts, tr in next st, work behind tr, dc in 3 skipped st, *skip over tr st and next st, ch1, puff stitch in next st, skip 3 sts, tr in next st, work behind tr just made , dc in 3 skipped st* repeat from * across, skip over tr st and next st, ch1, dc in the last st. (5 puff sts)
Row 17: Ch 4, Skip one st, *puff stitch in next st, skip 3 sts, tr in ch space after puff, work in front of tr st, dc in 3 skipped sts, ch 1, skip tr st and next ch space,* repeat from * 5 times across, puff stitch in next st, skip 3 sts, tr ch st after dc, dc in 3 skipped sts, ch 1, dc in the 3rd ch of ch 4 from previous row. (6 puff sts)
Row 18: ch 1, turn, skiping the top of puff sts, sc in each st and ch sts across, the last 2 sts in the 3rd and 4th ch of ch 4 from previous row. (38 sts)
Row 19: Repeat row 13 across
Row 20-21 Repeat row 2-3 across
Row 22-29: Repeat row 8-15

Border: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across, ch 1at the corner, work 38 sc down the side into the ends of the rows, repeat around the square, ch 1, sl to first st, Fasten Off. (38 sc each side)
Tip: work sts as evenly as possible when working down the side, it helps to place a marker the center and work 2 sections of 19 sts.
I hope you enjoyed this beautiful by Claudia, I look forward to seeing all the beautiful patterns in the Patchwork Mystery CAL Facebook Group!
