Cross Tapestry Crochet square

It's Holy week so I thought I would come up with a simple cross that is a great introduction to tapestry crochet. The color changes are simple :) Do this up in cotton and it's a cute wash/ dish cloth. Or use just about any yarn and make a scarf, or blanket by making lots of these and attaching them. Try out a variety of colors.
Before starting this pattern I recommend you do a square of 16 by 16 sc. If your stitches aren't even I wouldn't recommend this pattern just yet.


Supplies
I used green, pink and off white. and a size "H" crochet hook

** it doesn't matter which yarn you use but use the same brand because different brands are not always the same size***

Skill level is Intermediate 



 Before beginning here is a helpful link on what tapestry crochet is at
http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/ 

* every stitch is single crochet , chain 1 and turn at the beginning of every round. Starting at the bottom.

I will write out either G,W,or P, each one represent 1 stitch


feel free to use your own colors G=green O= off white P= pink


We are making a 16X16 square

16 fsc or chain and one row of sc in green

(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.
