I am very familiar working with post stitched but I have never worked with double triple crochet stitches. Stephanie explains the stitches very well in her pattern and there is also a step by step video available by Sammi from Hook, Wine, and Stitches.

I made 2 versions of the square. The first uses 3 colors and was worked as written in the pattern. The second uses 2 colors, one for the main stitches and on for the post stitch sections.

This design also features some special stitches to give a unique texture. The twisted increase stitch is a unique way to add in a stitch. This creates a interesting yet subtle texture to your increase stitches.

I loved making square, and there are are a few tricky spots. But take your time and watch this video from Sammie at Hook, Wine & Stitches.

Here are my versions of this week’s square:

This square includes a central flower and jacob ladder looped stitches for a magical design. I think a blanket made of these squares with the looped stitches in a contrasting colors would look really cool. My square is made with 3 color and the central flower looks like it is sprouting from a garden.

This might be one of the more challenging squares in this CAL. The Spring Pathways Square uses a mix of cable, shell and twist stitches to create this unique square. I made my square using stripes of colors. I didn’t even see the flower stitches until I saw Crochet Instict’s version. This stitch pattern would make a great scarf or shawl too!

This week’s square is a collaboration from 2 great designers. This magical square is literally sprouting from the yarn. I am in love with the corner “leaf” stitches. Who knew you could turn a standard crocodile stitch into a 3D leaf. I also love the small flowers on the border. I made my square

This square creates a special texture using alternating post stitches. This square looks good in solid colors but looks amazing in alternating stripes. The color changes make the stitches pop.

This pattern uses cable stitches, similar to my design in week 2, to create a nice textured effect. I made my square in one solid color, but the pattern looks amazing in stripes, both vertical & horizontal. If I make this square again I would use multiple colors.
