2019 Block-A-Week : Week 19

Hello! Welcome to Couch Surfer Crochet! We are now on Week 19 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)

The pattern for Week 19 will look like this when it’s finished!


This week we are going to make a square of my own design. This square is called the Shattered Circle Square. It originally appeared as part of the Hip to be Square Crochet Along.

The original pattern creates an 8 inch square. Since I want all of my squares for this project to be 12 inches, I extended the original pattern. The original pattern lists recommended color changes. However!! Feel free to change colors as few or as many times as you want!!

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!

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
