Another square finished. Square 14. I was delighted to find this design in my 101 Crochet Squares book. I had seen it on other sites and loved it but wasn’t sure how it was made.
It is really quite easy. Each little ruffle part has 5 double crochets. Skip a stitch, 5 dc, skip a stitch, 5 dc. All around in one color, change colors, go around again.
In between the ruffles is the square foundation part. The section the ruffles are stitched to. You can’t see that part unless you lift up the ruffles.
This is too pretty for an afghan. I can’t see myself laying down and smashing all these ruffles. Maybe a cover for those boutique designer tissue boxes. Or a wall hanging. Front of a handbag, maybe.
I love it so I will have to think of what to do with it.
