Week 9 Crochet Along

on April 30, 2012

Welcome back! I’m going to try something different for this week’s square. But first, here are the week 8 squares! You may notice that I messed up on one round of the square (can you see where?) but I liked it so much that I didn’t bother going back to change it.


My square


Myra’s square

 

So, this week I wanted to try writing my own square… I called it Reflections! If this square exists somewhere else, I’m sorry. I don’t remember seeing it anywhere. This is my first time trying to write a pattern, so again, I’ll take suggestions… Please feel free to use, share, adapt, or pin it… Just please don’t say that it is your own creation!

    I love crocheting… but haven’t done it since my last mat leave (lil dude is 5 now!) aside from crocheting milk bags for Haiti a couple of years ago. Your pretty patterns are inspiring me… I’d like to start up again, but need to track down a small, simple project to get me going!

    Do you still find time, now that you’re back at work?
