I asked my oldest daughter to name one of my squares. She picked this one and named it Medea.
I first did this square in a single color. But fell in love with it even more when I used 2 colors, which made the pattern more distinct.

Campfire Solid (1)

This square started out life as a circle. The day I turned it into a square was the day we were going camping with my sister’s family. But the campgrounds were full and we ended up camping in my sister’s backyard. Since it was fenced in with no river, I was able to sit by the fire and crochet. The design reminds me of a campfire.

Spokes and Petals Square 8″

cover

I really love this square! It’s one of my favorites. I love how the spokes in the center are repeated in the corners to turn the flower into a square.

I hope you enjoy crocheting this as much as I do.  

Here, I’ve joined Spokes and Petals Squares with the flat braided join to create a small baby blanket.

Cobblestone Rows Square 8″

12184099_10206783237771029_8570973098291465838_o

 I’m excited for the opportunity I have to participate in designing some squares for the Hodgepodge Crochet Presents: The 2016 Afghan Sampler Project!

Cobblestone SolidThis is my first square. The alternating sc, dc combination is one of my favorites. In the Cobblestone Rows Square, I’ve sandwiched it between rows of sc and connected them with a row of sc and ch-1 spaces.

Cobblestone Colored

When I went searching for a grey yarn, I came across Red HeartSuper Saver in Dove and I love how it gives the square more of a cobblestone look.

I’d love to see your finished square! You can share it with me on Facebook , in the HodgePodge Crochet Presents: The 2016 Afghan Sampler Project! FB Group, and/or add it to your Ravelry projects/queue/favorites.
