Texture abounds in the block for this week! I am in love with the bumpy texture and solid, eye-catching design that makes a statement all on its own!!

Let’s learn a little more about the square and the designer behind it!

ONLINE SHOPS:

A few words from Kiley!

I started crocheting in college to help me focus during class. As a kinesthetic learner, I had difficulty unless I was working with my hands. It turned into a passion, and once I learned how patterns worked, I started designing. I love creating unique designs that look complex but are actually simple to work up. Although I’m not new to pattern designing (been doing it almost three years), I am still working to get all my patterns published. Everything I design is tested before publication.

Thoughts about her newest pattern, Courtyard Window Square!

I fell in love with this stitch repeat while designing a hat and scarf for a competition. I love the simple stitch combination, because it creates a textured design that works well with all yarn colors. I wanted to draw attention to the stitch texture, so splitting it into four “windows” brings the eye to the texture of the stitches.

Although this pattern is reminiscent of a window when done in one color, it has a different effect if colors are changed mid row. I chose these colors because they reminded me of preschool, and my oldest is a big fan. They remind me of stacking blocks in a classroom.

Important details about this block from the designer:

Gauge: 25 sc = 7”

Skill Level: intermediate

Materials Used:

  • worsted weight yarn
  • J/6.0mm hook (or hook to match gauge)
  • needle to weave in ends

Special Stitches:

  • fpdc – front post double crochet

  • BLO – back loop only

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

    For some reason when I click on the name of the pattern and am sent to the ravelry link for it I get an error saying it won’t be available until may 30, 2016. Then I tried coming back and clicking on the name of her blog and get another error saying that page doesn’t exist 😢
