The Block-a-month crochet-a-long continues and this month there have been some rather nice patterns.
The main square is called KISS2 and it's by Sadie Cuming. As with all the squares in the CAL, it's a free pattern. Here is my version.
This is probably my favourite of all the squares we have made so far.
The filler square was voted for by the members of the CAL. The winner was a pattern called 4033 Crochet Square. It basically consisted of lots and lots of puff stitches. These are my least favourite crochet stitch. I just couldn't face a large square with this stitch, so I substituted another pattern instead. The pattern I used is by Julie King and is called Floral Kaleidoscope Afghan Square. It was one of the options for this month but sadly didn't get enough votes. I liked it and so here is my version.
Finally, the little square this month is called Pinwheel Square by Kim Guzman. Another lovely pattern. As usual I made four of these squares.
So that a running total of the equivalent of fifteen large squares. When I lay them all out on the floor they look extremely colourful - brighter than I had envisaged at the start - but there's still a long way to go yet.
Looking forward to making the June squares, that'll be the half way point. It might give me some ideas on how I'm going to position and join the squares.
Until then, I've got so many more projects on the go to keep me busy. I'll share another one with you soon.
