2019 Block-A-Week : Week 13

Hello! Welcome to Couch Surfer Crochet! We are now on Week 13 of the 2019 Block-A-Week Project! You can find the first few weeks here:

Block-A-Week 2019 – Squares
(all of the weeks are posted there)

This week we are doing another one of my original designs. I am DEEP into my rewatch of Game of Thrones, getting ready for Season 8! In Season 1 they talk quite a bit about Sansa Stark’s beautiful embroidery skills, so I decided to create a floral pattern and call it the Sansa Square!

The pattern for Week 13 will look like this when it’s finished!

I’m using a size I/9 (5.5 mm) hook, and worsted weight size 4 yarn for every one of these squares to keep stitch sizing consistent. My squares don’t always look completely “square” at the end of each pattern. I intend to block them all at the end of this project before I sew them together!

I changed colors at random with this square. However!! Feel free to change colors as few or as many times as you want!! Color changes listed in pattern are just my suggestion, please feel free to stretch your creativity and make these squares any way you want to. I think it would even be pretty amazing in one solid color!

The colors I used are:

Color 1: Impeccable Yarn in Bright Sky Blue
Color 2: Red Heart Super Saver in Pale Yellow
Color 3: Impeccable Yarn in Grape Punch
Color 4: Red Heart Jumbo in Pretty N’ Pink
Color 5: Red Heart Super Saver in Aruba Sea

We will be adding a border to each square to ensure that each one is the same “size” around, since some of these squares have a different number of stitches around the edge! Then we will join all the squares together and add a border. 🙂 Click here to see that tutorial! If you don’t want to miss a post, sign up for the email list at the top right of the home page!

I hope you have fun making this square! I am happiest when I am creating. I love to see how all these bit and bobs of color can turn into this amazing work of art! Don’t forget to come back next Friday to get the pattern for Week 14!
