It's been in progress for over a year now, this blanket. A while ago I took a big step back and changed the colour scheme (you can read about that and see the new colours here, if you missed it). I just love it now, and every now and then I even get the chance to add a couple more rows to it ;-)
Anyhoo, it's time to reveal the completed fuchsia block. I adore this colour for the way it pops against the greys and the white. Wherever possible, I’ve linked to the original patterns and their designers. As you’ll see, however, there are a couple that I can’t track beyond Pinterest. If anyone knows who owns the copyright to these pattern, I’d be very grateful if you could get in touch.
Crochet meets Patchwork Afghan - The Fuchsia squares
2.5 mm (C), 3.0 mm (D/3) or 3.5 mm (E/4) hooks
DMC Natura Just Cotton (fingering weight)
Colours: Amaranto, Ivory, Gris Argent, Aswan
individual square size: 10 cm x 10 cm (ca. 4" by 4")
- "Hexagon Daisy Pattern" by Cornel at i love pom-poms - adapted after round 4 to make a square rather than a hexagon.
- Star Stitch granny - no pattern, this is just a practice square that I ended up liking a lot! It is based on a repeat of 4 rows: row 1 SC; row 2 slip st.; row 3 SC; row 4 Star Stitch (also known as Marguerite Stitch).
- "Anemone" Granny Square by Eline at Pasta & Patchwork
- Unknown - I found this as part of a set of four diagrams on Pinterest
- “Triple Puff” Granny Square by Eline at Pasta & Patchwork
- Standard Crochet Granny Square - goodness knows who came up with this pattern first (!) but I used this step-by-step photo tutorial by Allison at Dream a Little Bigger to learn how to make granny squares.
- “Snowflake on the Square” by Laura at Baking Outside the Box
- "Block Stitch Square" by Ana Benson at Craft Chic
- “Sunburst” Granny Square - no idea who came up with this first, but I used this photo tutorial by Jenny at Nittybits to learn.
