Petite, cute, quick to make. A bunch of these squares in all different colors would look great as a LONG scarf.
My learning curve just nudged up a bit. I learned how to make a CL. A cluster stitch. It was super easy. Here’s one being made. On my hook.
Not sure why it took me so long to make something using it. I tend to look through my crochet books and select first the stuff with stitches I am familiar with. Never going to grow that way. Which is why I made this.
I like making clusters. I also like the feel of it. You can press your thumb into the depressed area of the petals. There are many more patterns with clusters in my 101 book. Maybe now I can work through them faster. Less study time. More crochet time.
But for now… am taking a few days break… so I can macrame something. Will get started today. Or tomorrow. Promise. 😀

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