Making the Modern Crochet Rectangle

Each rectangle consists of a chain of 21, 1 row of double crochet and then 2 rounds of half treble crochet (htr) clusters (made up of 2 half treble crochet stitches).

A video tutorial showing how to make the rectangles can be found here.

The instructions for making the rectangle is as follows:

Have fun with making different coloured rectangles.

I used these rectangles to make my Modern Crochet Granny Rectangle Blanket.
