A New Pattern

beiges, block #13

Just completed block #13. Seven to go and then I can start on my next afghan squares swap: 'peacock feather colors'!!

This is a square I made for an afghan swap group I belong to. I’m working right now on squares in beige, cream, taupe. Not my favorites (I love colors–the brighter the better), but I’m having  fun with them anyway, and concentrating more on pattern and texture, rather than the colors.

For this square, I started with a basic pattern from the book 201 crochet motifs, blocks, projects and ideas by Melody Griffiths.

I think I’ll try it again soon, perhaps in the ‘peacock feather’ colors that we’ll be using for our second swap.

Instructions for this square are  here. If you’d like to see all the blocks for this project that I’ve completed so far, they’re on my Beige Afghan Swap page.
