Hip to be Square CAL – Week 2

By | Crochet Along, Crochet Pattern | No Comments

Welcome back to the Hip to be Square Crochet Along! Last week we did 4 squares of the adapted Treble Starburst Square. This week we will be making 8 squares! This pattern is much simpler. There are no color changes in this square (except the final row if you are following the same color sequencing as I am). If you don’t think making a bunch of squares is for you, check out the Mixed Stitch Blanket CAL. It’s done in rows with lots of stripes!

I’ve decided to call this square the Solid Spaces Square. I like how every other row kind of look like stepping stones. It’s a little more textured than a traditional granny square, but the pattern is easy to repeat once you get the hang of it!

Hip to be Square CAL – Week 1

By | Crochet Along, Crochet Pattern | No Comments


Hello and welcome to the first Week of the Hip to be Square Crochet Along! I am so excited to share this project with all of you. I hope you enjoy making this blanket!

Not too long ago I shared the pattern for a crocheted square I had created. I called it the Treble Starburst Square because of the shape in the center. I knew I wanted to create something using that square but at the time could not decide what in the world that might be. I set it aside for a little while so I could finish a few customer orders, and one day the idea came to me! I knew it would be a great accent in a blanket made with a few different types of squares.

Square Crochet Along – Details

By | Crochet Along, Crochet Pattern | No Comments

Hello again!

I have had a few questions regarding the upcoming Hip to be Square Crochet Along. I wanted to write up a quick post to further explain the details of how this will work!

This blanket will be made of 36 squares in total, in a 6×6 grid. I ran a poll in the Couch Surfer Crocheters Facebook group to determine how to share the squares each week. I didn’t know if you all would rather grow your blankets row by row (doing a few different types of squares each week), or if you’d want to do all of one type of square at the same time. The vast majority of you voted to do all of ONE type of square for each week.

Hello! Welcome back to Couch Surfer Crochet! Recently I shared with you my first ever Crochet Along project: The Mixed Stitch Blanket CAL! It was so much fun to work on! I really loved testing my creativity and seeing how my idea could be interpreted in so many different ways! I’ve had quite a few people ask me when will I be doing another Crochet Along? Well, have I got good news for you! I’m starting a new Crochet Along! This one will be called the “Hip to be Square” CAL!

Awhile back I had shared a new square pattern I created called the “Treble Starburst Square.” This square was the beginning inspiration for this new project! As I’m sure you could guess by the name, this blanket Crochet Along will be made using a whole bunch of different granny squares. The project will run for a total of eight weeks.
