January’s second square is a bit more complicated. I continued with the cold winter blue and white and added a snowflake. This pattern requires a bit of knowledge in shaping in order to transform the piece from round as it starts out, to square by the last round.
The FREE pattern for this square can be found here on Ravelry. The original picture there is in red and white and the center is done in the contrasting color rather than making the inside all the same color. But it looked like a snowflake to me so I did the center all in white. Just another example of the different results you can get by changing colors. I also skipped the last round of single crochets on this one as I had already reached my seven inches by the round of double crochets.
I do like how this one turned out. The snowflake is very pretty. I didn’t find the pattern to be completely clear though. I had to do a bit of experimenting to figure out the shaping. But it all turned out well in the end.
