Crochet Square 14

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.

Yarn used:
Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream 100% cotton in Pink Rose, Cream and Hot Pink.
Lion Brand 100% cotton in Orchid/Fuchsia.

Measurements: 6″


How many squares have I done? Here’s my tracker.

    I WANT TO LEARN THIS ONE. I think making a bohemian coat with it for the winter will be pretty cool, plus the ruffles will make it warmer…. I think…..Or I am just in love with the ruffle effect lol. I LOVE IT. I wish I was discipline to finish what I begin though, but would love to try this one.
