November – Square Twenty-one

November - Square Twenty-one

November – Square Twenty-one

I found this square online and loved it, but the pattern came from a book 200 Crochet blocks for blankets, throws and afghans, by Jan Eaton.  So I placed it on hold at the library and picked it up.

I liked this square because it keeps to the traditional granny without appliques or anything, but is still unique and very pretty.

The patterns in this book themselves were what I would call a little lazy.  The pattern would indicate to complete a cluster, but not specify how.  As crocheters know, there are many different ways to make a cluster stitch and the way you would think to do it is not always the way the designer created the piece. So I had to just guess for myself a little bit.

The crochet language is also a bit dated in this book too.  For example, it uses the term “break off” instead of “finish off.”

I am getting excited about getting so close to being done with this project!
