Mélange Blanket Square 6: Ellie’s 6″ Afghan Square

Our sixth square pattern is Ellie’s 6″ Afghan Square by Moogly. You can find Tamara online on Facebook | InstagramPinterestRavelry | YouTube

You can see Tamara’s version below. She used three bright colors.

I am using King Cole Big Value Aran (available through your local yarn shop or online at LoveCrafts or Wool Warehouse UK) and my Denise US Size J-10/6 mm crochet hook for my blanket. This makes it easier to keep consistent gauge across all my squares.

For my version of Ellie’s 6″ Afghan Square, I used Nougat as Color A, Berry as Color B, and Ocean as Color C. My square almost 6″ after Round 8, so I change Round 9 to use slip stitches in the back loop only instead of single crochet in the back loop only. At the end of my modified Round 9, the square was exactly 6″ and I spray blocked it. (If you’re new to blocking, check out Blocking Basics for Crocheters and Knitters.)

I found this pattern very easy to follow and I loved the look! It’s been so fun to see all the different ways designers create floral patterns. Tamara includes helpful links in her pattern to tutorials for all the special stitches.
