WEEK TWENTY HAS ARRIVED!! I’m super excited to be this far into the Sampler Blanket! After this week (if you’ve been keeping along and have crocheted one block for each week) you’ll only need 10 more squares to have enough to make a toddler blanket!
Let’s learn a little more about the square and the designer behind it!
Amber Millard owns and operates Divine Debris. She does amazing things with yarn that continually excite and inspire both myself and all of her fans!
You can find her all around the internet!
A few words from Amber!
I’m Amber, the creative force behind Divine Debris. I learned to crochet as a child but didn’t pick it up again until I was married and moving across the country a couple of times with my Marine husband. Crochet keeps me creative, grounded and excited about new ideas. I’ve been nominated for a Crochet Award, published in The Pattern Pack and Happily Hooked Magazine.
Thoughts about her newest pattern, Diana Square!
The Diana Line is one of my favorites, as it has so much texture and I love texture in my patterns. It’s also really simple, another detail that I like, so you really aren’t learning new stitches for this pattern, just changing the way you use the stitches you already know.
In this design I really wanted to highlight the different stitches and textures, as they repeat in this pattern. The repetition is a big part of what I love about this pattern, and so making the sections the with the same stitch the same color, it shows off the repetition much better than just a single color can.
Important details about this block from the designer:
Gauge: 5” x 5” = 8 rows x 17 DCs
Skill Level: Easy
Materials Used (include yarn, hook, notions, etc.):
- Worsted/ size #4 / medium weight yarn
- .8 oz/ 22 g/ roughly 47 yards
- US J (6.00 mm) crochet hook
- Tapestry/ yarn needle
Special Stitches: Working into the back third loop of a hdc.
I hope you enjoy tackling this week’s block and you’re looking forward to next week’s exclusive design from Silverdragon Crafts & Critters!
