Introducing Square #8: ! CLICK HERE to go to the pattern page.
Above is the original, made with 5 colors. This square is made up of basic stitches to create this stunning design. I love how this looks like a kaleidoscope as it is worked up!
Here are my notes!
I used 7 colors to make my square. Watching the way this square worked up was really fun! I can’t wait to try it as a blanket.
I didn’t have any trouble working up my square. It was really easy and only took a few hours to crochet up.
Thanks for crocheting~along with me!
