Triple Textures 12" Afghan Square
"In 2014, my friend Tamara from Moogly Blog began hosting year long afghan crochet alongs. Over the coarse of each year, she shares 24, 12″ crochet square patterns designed by guest designers and then wraps up each afghan crochet along with instructions for a border. If you were to dedicate a couple hours of crochet time each month, by the end of the year you'll have a beautiful afghan! The Triple Textures 12″ Afghan Square was designed to be afghan block #4 in the 2020 Moogly Afghan CAL."

Crossed Afghan Square
From the blogger: "This square may be labeled intermediate due to the post stitches, but it's actually pretty easy to crochet! The varying stitch heights create a fun color pattern, while the post stitches give the overall square some texture. Try playing with different colors or even making the whole thing in one color. Just have fun with it. Once you finish the stitches, cut the yarn and weave in all ends. The finished piece after blocking should measure to be a 12” square. Enjoy!
