Across the purple sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know it's time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time

For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until it's time to go
So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I do not fear the time

For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?

Pattern Notes

  • IMPORTANT: Each round starts by working a stitch into the same stitch you slip stitched to join in the previous round. But for the sake of repeats, sometimes the first st isn’t pointed out. Sometimes the pattern starts you off by saying to make a stitch into the next stitch. If you’re just starting a round and all you’ve done so far is the ch1 at the very beginning and the very first thing the pattern says to do is to stitch into the “next stitch,” that means the first stitch, the one with the slip stitch already in it. (I know, I know, this is a bit unconventional for me and my pattern writing, but hang in there. When you see how this and the other CAL patterns go you’ll understand why I took some liberties with the pattern writing.)
  • Stitch counts will start with 1 stitch per side in round 1 and increase by 2 stitches every round. Not counting ch2 corners.
  • When slip stitching to join, slip stitch to both loops and then pull the slip stitch tight.
  • When you make a stitch into a lower round you will always leave the sc behind it unworked.
  • If you wish to create a square larger than the written 16 rounds you’ll need to work the pattern as written through round fourteen. Keep it growing through an 18th round, on round 19 you’d start another chevron of treble crochets, on round 23 you’d start another chevron of double crochets and so on until you reach your desired size. Then use round 15 to finish up in the same manner – you’ll see how the chevrons are completed to give you nice lines – and top it all off with round 16.
