Hi everyone! I’m so excited for this week’s design and to get this project started. If you follow me on FB or IG you should have seen (I say should because those platforms are being bratty about showing everyone posts) me talking about this project for a while. Sometime in December I was playing around with tapestry (shocking, I know!) and thought it’d be a fun design to make into a afghan square. And then I thought how fun it would be to make this a year-long project of monthly square releases that people could follow along. I didn’t want it to be a huge project, only 12 squares are planned so far, but it’s enough that people can pop in and out when they want and make the squares that look interesting to them. And my plans for the project were formed.
For now I’ve got some ideas for designs and I’m so excited to show them all off – keep an eye on my Instagram if you want to see them as they’re coming along. I have some plans for a paid square pack but I haven’t worked them out yet – so no promises there.

So, here’s the first square – the first week of the designs. February will be the second square – see ya then!

Update: February’s square is now up!

Notes

  • This pattern is worked flat back in forth in rows, with a turn at the beginning/ end of the row, from the bottom up.
  • This square measures about 7.5″ unblocked and will come out with 8″ with a sc border (explained below). The photos do not feature a border.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Every stitch in this pattern is a single crochet. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many scs to make.
  • Your square may need some light blocking.
  • You will need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Color A is blue (Bernat Super Value in Denim Heather), and color B is white (Bernat Super Value in White).

Finished product dimensions

Without border
7.5” x 7.5”

  1. Are rows 29 and 30 supposed to be with color A instead of B? I have a headache so it’s entirely possible that I’m reading it wrong! 🤔thank you for the pattern, looking forward to next months!

  2. I LOVE tapestry crochet and this project is right up my alley. I’m going to try to start working on it this evening. Maybe after the dinner fiasco, helping kids with homework, getting kids washed, brushed and in bed…..maybe. 🙂 A mom can dream!

  3. Exited to start this today! I’m curious to know why you’re waiting for all your squares to be done before adding the border?

  4. I’m so excited about this project. I shall be doing the whole 12 – I’m an intermediate crocheter, but like to practice tapestry as it is something I’ve not done a lot of. This is a journey I can do without over extending myself and still continue with my current project. Looking forward to the next one…..thanks

  5. Do you plan to make the squares in different colors? I would like to order whatever color palette you’re using. Thank you.
