Crochet Hexagon Into Square Pattern: Hexi Askew Square

Hexi Askew Square, free crochet pattern in Red Heart With Love by Underground Crafter for 2019 Moogly Crochet Along

I’m thrilled to be participating in the Moogly Crochet Along again this year. I like combining geometric shapes, and Hexi Askew Square starts with a crochet hexagon that turns into a square. I used stripes but also plenty of textured stitches so that even if you make your square in one color, it will still pop.

I don’t usually make 12″ (30.5 cm) squares because I prefer making smaller squares that are more portable to work on. That is, until about halfway through the project when I realize I have soooo. many. more. squares. to. make. Then I wish they were all bigger!

When I was working on crocheting the center hexagon into a square, I knew it wouldn’t perfectly line up with the square, but I liked the off-kilter look. You may have noticed that I love projects that aren’t perfectly symmetrical. I hope you do, too!

Crochet Pattern: Patchwork Cat

Free crochet pattern: Patchwork Cat in Red Heart With Love yarn by Underground Crafter | This patchwork cat is designed in the style of a classic quilt block. Use planned colors, as I did, or make it scrappy. I used Fairfield Poly-Fil Crafter’s Choice Dry Polyester Packing Fiber Fill to give the cat a stiffer shape, like a foam pillow.

Recently, I’ve been getting back into sewing again. I used to sew (or really, do patchwork and quilting) a lot before I moved in with MC. Since I’ve lived here, my sewing table has moved around without really finding a true home. Now that it has finally settled, my fingers have been itching to sew, so I have been looking through my quilting books for inspiration. This patchwork cat is designed in the style of a cat quilt block. It’s a great way to use up yarn scraps. I used the leftovers from my Classic Granny with a Twist Blanket – together, these would make a great gift!

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase using these links. Materials for this project were generously provided by Clover USA, Fairfield World, and Red Heart.

One of my favorite quilt books to flip through is The Cat’s Meow: Purr-fect Quilts for Cat Lovers by Janet Kime. One of the quilt patterns, Checkers, is a beginner-friendly cat using mostly squares. I decided to replicate it in crochet for this project.

Free crochet pattern: Patchwork Cat in Red Heart With Love yarn by Underground Crafter | This patchwork cat is designed in the style of a classic quilt block. Use planned colors, as I did, or make it scrappy. I used Fairfield Poly-Fil Crafter’s Choice Dry Polyester Packing Fiber Fill to give the cat a stiffer shape, like a foam pillow.I love the look of these FreshStitches cat craft eyes, and I decided to keep the nose and mouth rustic to match the rest of the pattern. If you gift the Patchwork Cat to a baby or infant, embroider on the eyes with yarn or thread instead of using craft eyes for safety. I used Fairfield Poly-Fil Crafter’s Choice Dry Polyester Packing Fiber Fill because it has a coarser texture than other types of stuffing. It’s easier to pack in and it makes a firmer toy than when you use a softer stuffing. This made it easier for the cat to stand up after stuffing.

If you’re anxious about weaving in lots of ends, I recommend crocheting over your yarn tails after you change color. If you’re not sure how to do that, there’s a helpful video tutorial here. If you have lots of small scraps, you can turn them into one big ball of yarn using the Russian join. Here’s a helpful Russian join tutorial.

Crochet Pattern: Classic Granny with a Twist Blanket

Classic Granny with a Twist Blanket, free crochet pattern in Red Heart With Love yarn by Underground Crafter | Set 6 variations on the traditional granny square on point to create a beautifully striking throw or baby blanket. #redheartyarns #joycreatorsAfter dropping hints about the Classic Granny with a Twist Blanket all week, I’m so excited to finally share the pattern with you! This blanket includes 6 variations on the traditional granny square, set on point to create a beautifully striking throw or baby blanket. This is a great beginner-friendly granny square project where you can practice motif variations and seaming and come up with something that looks far more complicated than it is.

I’ve always loved blankets that are assembled on point. I mean, why should everything just be in regular straight rows, right?

Bonus: Everything set on point looks so much harder, so you get extra crochet cred without doing much more than a regular assembly.
