8″ Tapestry Heart Afghan Square crochet pattern by Divine Debris

Hey everyone! It’s the day I’ve been super excited but also nervous for since I announced the #2018TSAP in December – the second month’s square! It’s not because it’s a bad design or a hard design, it’s just I don’t want that sophomore slump, ya know? 😉
Actually this design is a bit harder than last month’s and because of that I wanted to talk about the design for a second. For this design I used a bobbin technique for the gray pieces, because I didn’t need a lot of the yarn and I didn’t want to carry the 3 colors the whole time. I just used the gray pieces when I needed them and dropped them when I didn’t.
That’s also what I did in January’s design – I only used the second color when I needed and then dropped the color when I didn’t carry the yarn all the way to the edges of the square, just held it where I needed. This technique can distort the square a bit but as long as your tension is consistent and you block it, it really isn’t noticeable or hurt the final out-come.
Also, when you’re working this there is a “right side” to the design. When I do a tapestry design I always pick a side for the “right side” and then I drop all the ends on the other side and try to make sure the carried yarn is less noticeable on the “right side” as compared to the back.

So that’s my little bit about the tapestry squares. I hope you are as excited as I am about this square! There’s a coupon in the pdf for this square so you get a deep discount on March’s design (which might show up on IG soon, so keep an eye out!).

You can purchase an ad-free pdf of this pattern for $1.75 in my Ravelry shop! Your purchase helps to keep these patterns coming to my blog week after week!

Materials

  • US H (5.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Aran/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
  • Yarn needle

    Ravelry link

Terms/stitches used

  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

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.
  • The use of bobbins like they did on Hodgepodge Crochet is suggested for this pattern.
  • 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 off-white (Caron One Pound in Off-White), color B is pink (Bernat Super Value in Magenta), and color C is gray (Bernat Super Value in True Gray).

      As long as you take it slow and keep an eye on the “right side” then you shouldn’t have any problems.
      I can’t wait to see how your project turns out! Please add some photos to the Ravelry listing when you get it done 🙂
