A few words from Susan!

I started a facebook page just because I love to share the crafts I do.  I chose the name Crafting Potpourri because I really loved the word “Hodgepodge” but it has been taken!  So Potpourri kind of gave the same message:  a mixture of the crafts I love or have tried.

Thoughts about her newest pattern, Flower Trellis Square!

For some reason, I really like making treble crochets and this square was fun to make with some interesting stitches.

I decided to make a multi-color square that I really liked, but I couldn’t carry the yarn with these stitches so there was a lot of fastening off and weaving of ends.

Important details about this block from the designer:

Skill Level:  Intermediate

Materials:

  • H hook
  • 2 colors Worsted weight yarn (I used RHSS).  The last round of the edge will be completed in color used to join the squares.

Special stitch instructions:  A tc3tog is a way to decrease.  To complete a tc3tog: *yo twice, insert hook into next st, yo, pull up a loop, (yo, draw through 2 loops) twice, repeat from * two more times, yo, draw through all loops on hook.

I hope you enjoy tackling this week’s block and you’re looking forward to next week’s exclusive design from Divine Debris!
