The letter I is made from small crochet granny squares
I used DK cotton in three contrasting colours and a size 3.5mm crochet hook
I have taken photos of most of the steps, but if you find it easier to actually see what is happening there are loads of videos of the crochet stitches on you tube.
I used the following stitches (UK terminology)
Chain (ch) yarn over hook, pull through loop
Slip stitch (sl st) insert hook, yarn over pull through stitch and through loop on hook
Double crochet (dc), insert hook, yarn over, pull through loop, now 2 loops on hook, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook.
Treble (tr), yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull through loop, now 3 loops on hook, yarn over, pull through first two loops, yarn over, pull through 2 loops
Create the starting loop, insert hook through loop and pull through. there is now 1 loop on hook. Keep the large loop open. yarn over and pull through loop (ch)
ch 3 more stitches
*3tr into the centre loop ch1*, repeat from * to * 2 more times. 2tr into centre loop
sl st through 3rd ch of the 4 chain created at the start. Cut thread and pull through. Pull on starting thread to close hole in the centre.
In the ch space between the 3tr insert hook and pull through new colour.
ch4, in same space 3tr
*In next ch space 3 tr, 1ch, 3 tr*, repeat 3 more times
2tr in first corner and sl st to 3rd ch stitch. Cut yarn and pull through.
Pull new yarn though. Yarn over and pull through loop on hook
dc through the top of each tr all the way around the square. 2dc in each corner.
sl st into the first dc, cut yarn and pull through.
I made 8 small square. Sew in the ends
With right sides together join along edge with sl st
Sew in the needs and lightly press with iron.
