Crochet framed squares – The last motif for your blanket


The last pattern for your crochet blanket is ready! We have already worked the first six motifs, a couple with heart and star, a two-tone weaved motif, a waffle stitch, a slanting square stitch, and a slanting popcorn stitch. Now, we take My Earth yarn in brown and cream shades and let’s learn the crochet framed squares stitch together. Double stitch and elongated double stitch create a unique checkerboard pattern in contrasting hues.
Motif always measures 10×10cm. So, let’s get going!
