printable pattern

Maybe I just have a silly imagination, but I swear there’s a red vampire eye in this block. Do you see it? I think if I do another, I will make the last two rounds solid black and then it will definitely look like an eye!


This particular block was made for the Twilight Crafts Black & Red Swap, hence the vampiric name!  I hope to have a few more new patterns to offer up as I go along during the swap.

You Need:

  • Size G hook
  • Small amounts of two colors of yarn (A & B), I Love This Yarn used in sample.

    As a newbie to crochet, I love this pattern – I’m making squares at the moment for a bag to keep my crochet work in. Instead of using 2 colours I’m using variegated wool, and the pattern really shows the colouring really nicely.
