Crochet Blocks for Jewells

Queue On Ravelry

I’m not sure if it’s the awesome “hearts on a string” appearance of this square, or maybe it’s the lovely squashiness of working with two strands of yarn.  Either way, this is my new favorite pattern!  I’m envisioning an entire afghan made from 12″ blocks, possibly in a rainbow of colors!

  • Color A (worsted weight)
  • Color B (worsted weight)
  • Size H Hook
  • Gauge – 4dc = approximately 1″, 2 rows = 1″

Special Note: The pattern is achieved by changing colors at the top the dc sts.

The color pattern is Row 1:  2 color A, 1 color B, 2 color A, etc; Row 2, 2 color B, 1 color A, 2 color B (repeat pattern)

You will be working across the strand of yarn that you are not using throughout.  This means you’ll only have ends to weave in at the beginning and end.    See the illustrations in BD Chessboard for examples on how to do this.

Because you’re working with two strands of yarn at all times,  pay special attention so they don’t get twisted.

With Color A For 6″ square, ch 22 (for 12″ square, ch 42)

Row 1:  dc in 4th ch from hook, change color at top of dc, (dc in next ch, change color at top of dc, dc in each of next 2 ch, change color at top of dc).  Rep ( ) across, changing color in top of ch 3.

Row 2: dc in next ch, (change color at top of dc, dc in next st, change color at top of dc, dc in each of next 2 sts).  Rep ( ) across, changing color in top of ch 3.

Repeat Row 2 for Rows  3-12 (3-21 for 12″ block), always working across the color not on the hook, finish off.

Border:  Using one strand of either color, sc evenly around all sides (2 sc in side of dcs), 3 sc in each corner; ch 1, sc in each sc around, 2 sc in corners.  Finish off.

Eye of the Vampire 6″ Square

Red/Black swap block #3


add to your ravelry queue

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!
