More than a year ago my crochet bestie Annelies and I were inspired by shadow block quilts, we just love them but both didn't feel like sewing one! So why not crochet one we thought. The result was beyond expected.
Stylecraft Classique Cotton dk and I made mine with Stylecraft Batik dk.
I used Stylecraft Batik with hook 4mm.
12x 1900 cream, 2x 1915 graphite, 1x 1906 heather, 1x 1907 plum, 1x 1908 sage, 1x 1909 teal, 1x 1910 pistachio, 1x 1911 oive, 1x 1913 storm, 1x 1916 rose, 1x 1918 mint
I joined the squares as you go in the last round, like this:
don't pick up the last stitch from the finished square
put hook through chain 1 space from finished square, pick up loop and pull through and chain,follow the pattern to finish te square.
I made a real simple border of dc all around with (2dc, c, 2dc) in the chain 1 spaces in the corners.
Enjoy the pattern and I hope to see lots of Shadow Square Blankets on social media soon, so please remember to use #shadowsquareblanket and #doubleAdesignThis blog post contains affiliate links. I only link to products I personally use or would use. All opinions are my own.
