2019 Block-A-Week : Week 16

Hello! Welcome to Couch Surfer Crochet! We are now on Week 16 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)

I’m going to keep with the Game of Thrones theme for the name of this square. Season 8 just premiered to record numbers and I’ve already seen it twice myself! I’ve decided to call this square “Winterfell” since that was the name of the first episode this season!

The pattern for Week 16 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 like to make my squares super colorful, so I changed colors every round with this square. However!! Feel free to change colors as few or as many times as you want!!

This pattern uses the “Criss Cross” stitch. I’ve used this stitch before, first in the Criss Cross Beanie, and then for the Changing Chevrons Crochet Along. I love the look and feel of this stitch. It gives a unique texture to any project you add it to!

This pattern is now available as a FREE download from Ravelry!

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
