~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I loved designing  this lovely square and can’t wait to whip up several to join into a bright and fun afghan!!  Each square measures 12″ x 12″, but you can adjust the size by stopping at any point to make it smaller or adding additional double crochet and single crochet rounds to make it larger!

Yarn – 50 yards each worsted weight yarn.  You can use 1-16 colors to make this your own.  I used the following:

Red Heart  with Love – Papaya(Color A), White(Color B) and Pewter(Color C)

 

Hook – Size J, I love the Clover Soft Touch Hooks!!

The only other item you will need is a pair of scissors…


Stitches:

St – Stitch

Ch – Chain

Sk – Skip

Sp – Space

Sl St – Slip Stitch

Sc – Single Crochet
