April’s second square is blessedly more simple than the daffodil debacle. Yellow isn’t normally my color. Maybe I’m just not the bright and cheery personality that it implies, but it’s normally not the first color I would select. But I figured an April square for spring time would be yellow. And I was surprised to find myself refreshed by this little gem. The square is a little more than basic with an offset diamond in the center which requires a bit of shaping, and two chain-2 spaces at the center of each side to mix things up a little bit.
The original inspiration for the square can be found here but I’ve modified it and written my own pattern again. My pattern can be found on Ravelry, here. Additionally, I have added an optional replacement to round 5 to close the chain-2 spaces on each side and make solid rows instead. I think I like the open spaces however.
