2019 Tapestry Square Afghan Project or #2019TSAP

I did! I made the lapghan before the end of the year.
When I made 2018’s TSAP lapghan I didn’t get all the squares done until the very last minute of the year. I might have even been working on it on New Years Eve. Who can say?
But this year I was on top of it, I got all 12 of the Squares done early and was able to get creative with my extra 12 squares. I did a mix of plain squares and some squares that were inspired by my Divine Diamonds Throw Blanket squares.

These are the 12 coffee squares, the real meat of this blanket… erm, sandwich. The most important part. I designed the rest of this lapghan around it. I added some simple squares to fill the blanket out. Continue below to see the additional squares.

Create as slipknot on your hook with color A and start in the first st to the left of the ch-1 space in the top right corner. Sc into the next 12 sts, sc twice into the next ch-1 space, sc twice into the next ch-1 space (of the next square), sc into the next 12 sts, ch 1 at the corner and rotate your piece, sc into the next 14 sts, sc into the next ch-1 space, sc into the next ch-1 space (of the next square), sc into the next 14 sts, ch 1 at the corner and rotate your piece, sc into the next 12 sts, sc twice into the next ch-1 space, sc twice into the next ch-1 space (of the next square), sc into the next 12 sts, ch 1 at the corner and rotate your piece, sc into the next 14 sts, sc into the next ch-1 space, sc into the next ch-1 space (of the next square), sc into the next 14 sts — 116 sc, 3 ch-1 spaces
Fasten off leaving a long tail that you’ll use to create an invisible seam on the corner as you did on the individual squares.

Repeat the Seaming and Border with the remaining 12 squares.

Organize your squares as you’d like in your blanket. I went with a checkerboard look.

After I finished the seaming, I decided not to make a border for the blanket but you definitely can. All I know, is that it’s super cozy and totally worth all the work.

I have had many requests for a “Foodie” themed lapghan by some of the teens . . . . based on the food squares from previous projects that you have . . . . Such as the hamburg . . . . Still trying to take your watermelon, candy corn, and pizza patterns to come up with an appropiaite sized pizza square with different toppings ? (1 plain/cheese only; 1 with pepperoni only; 1 that is more veggie/deluxe). I am not so good at the creating thing, Also have request for taco and hot dog . . . . Thank you. I have had so much fun with these squares.
