The Willow Square

Diagram of the Willow square

I've been obsessed with the Willow crocheted square for a many years. It's lacy and interesting to crochet. If it's crocheted with thread or light-weight yarn it is oh so dainty. If you use a heavier yarn, it's sturdy but antique-y looking. I've used this square in sweaters, scarves, purses and afghans. I became aware of this square in 2007 when Cecily Keim published her "Larger Than Life Bag" in Interweave Crochet Magazine. I made a smaller version of this bag and fell in love with the square.

The Willow square is lovely in different colors for every round, but notice how BEAUTIFUL it is when crocheted in a solid color!

Recently, I decided to try and use up the blue and green acrylic, worsted weight yarn in my stash. My Mom LOVES blue. Her whole apartment is blue and white. I'm working on a Willow Square afghan for her place. I probably won't finish this until holiday time, but so far, I'm loving it!

Spectacular! Clad in our suits, we arrived at the wedding venues for the wedding and enjoyed every minute as we warmed ourselves in the comfort of good friends and joyful Holiday cheer. This truly is a magical place for a special evening.
