You can find my first pattern for this CAL, the Diagonal Box Stitch Square, here.

I wanted each of my square designs for this crochet-a-long to be a little different. Since the last one was crocheted in rows, this one is crocheted in rounds. The last one used two colors, so this one uses three colors. The last one was easy, and this one is a bit more… interesting.

You see, the Raised Bunchberry Square is dimensional.

Raised Bunchberry Square, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterIt also features several special stitches. Since I want crochet-a-long to be fun for crocheters at all different skill levels, I included photo tutorials for the special stitches.

I also asked three fellow designers to check out the pattern. They used some great colors in their versions!

Crochet Pattern: Diagonal Box Stitch Square (Mystery Lapghan CAL)

Diagonal Box Stitch Square, free 6" (15 cm) crochet pattern with video tutorial by Marie Segares @ucrafter. Part of the Mystery Lapghan CAL 2015 - 36 free crochet patterns for 6" squares!

Last month, I shared the Diagonal Rainbows Baby Blanket pattern with you. I had so much fun using this variation of the diagonal box stitch (also known as the corner-to-corner or c2c technique), that I decided to design a 6″ (15 cm) square using it.
This square is my first contribution to the Mystery Lapghan Crochet-a-long, a fun crochet event featuring 36 6″ (15 cm) squares by 30 crochet designers.

This post contains affiliate linksThe yarn for the sample was generously provided by Lion Brand.

The great thing about using this pattern for the CAL is that it can easily be adjusted to match your specific gauge. I included a video tutorial at the bottom of the post in case you are new to corner-to-corner crocheting. I used different hook sizes for the sample square pictured above and the one in the video, and each required a different number of rows to reach the same size. You can make similar adjustments to your own square!
