I am so excited to say that I joined my first crochet-a-long! WooHoo!!
Thanks to Tamara Kelly from MooglyBlog.com for taking the time to put together this amazing crochet-a-long afghan project for 2015. Tamara got together 24 awesome crochet bloggers and each of them designed a 12″ block crochet pattern for this crochet-a-long.
Every two weeks, Tamara will post a pattern for the next 12″ block. After the 24 blocks are completed, you can then put them together to create your own unique afghan. Brilliant idea Tamara!

I’m using a new yarn for this project that I have never used before. It’s made by Lion Brand Yarns and named “Heartland”. I chose Acadia, Yellowstone, Yosemite and Sequoia as my four colors. The colors remind me of the natural colors in our world and the changing colors of leaves. I’m using a 5.0 H clover hook. I tend to crochet loosely so I went down in my hook size. My finished square came out to be about 11″. Once blocked, the square measured 12″. I’m happy with the result so I’m going to crochet on!
The first block is titled, “Tamara’s Kismet Square” and it was designed by Jessie Rayot. Thank you Jessie, from Jessie At Home, for writing a clear challenging pattern where you explained in detail how to make the Jacob’s Ladder stitch. It was a new stitch for me and I love it!
Here is a photo of my completed first block here:
I’m so looking forward to Block #2!
Thank you so much for stopping by and feel free to come back again.
