It has been a bit of a while since I posted here on the Crochet Cloudberry blog and I am really sorry for the delay in getting the September square to you. Sometimes life, work and everything else takes over. But the good news is that it means I will be releasing another pattern this month too, so October is a double whammy!
I’ve noticed as the cooler months come in, I am more inclined to be working on my blanket and on crochet in general. The colour pallet I have chosen for the 2023 crochet blanket feels a lot more seasonal right now.
The September Square is another square worked in rows to match the August Square. It uses the caterpillar stitch to make an interesting pattern that looks a little like plaid.
Tapestry needle and sharp scissors
