OMG…You guys!!! We are now on the last week of squares! We are going back to basics again this week. We will be making 8 squares of the basic granny square pattern just like we did in Week 4, but we are going to be using a different color for the main block to create the pattern at the end when we join. Here’s how the squares look before the join so you can see in the pattern why we are doing two weeks of the same type of square!
Welcome to Week 3 of the Hip to be Square Crochet Along! If you are just joining us, you can find Week 1 HERE, and Week 2 HERE.
We will be doing one of the more intricate squares this week, so we will be making 4 squares. I’ve decided to call this square the Shattered Circle Square because of the ring of double crochets look like pieces of the circle exploding outwards!
As a reminder, I’m using a size I/9 (5.5 mm) hook, and worsted weight size 4 yarn.
We will be making 4 of these squares. Because I tend to love symmetry in my projects I have decided to make all of the squares each week in the same color sequence. But I want you all to feel free to fully express your creativity however you want in this blanket! I shared the colors I chose in the announcement post if you’d like to follow along with me exactly. In my color palette, I have chosen to use Color D (Impeccable Yarn in Teal) as the last row of each square.
