If you are on Instagram, you might have already noticed that there has been a surge in people trying to crochet this pattern.
You can find it on pinterest (Print out the diagram on the best quality setting)
and here on instagram!
It is called:
The Rustic Lace Square
So pretty, don't you think? It was love at first sight, but I had to postpone trying it out until a number of other things were completed (especially the baby blanket).
I love playing with crochet, trying new things, and also playing with yarn, see what works and what doesn't.
There is only a diagram, no written instructions. Most people make them in multiple colours, I decided to use variegated yarns.
This time I used Katia Jaipur cotton yarn (50g = 280m, recommended hook: 1.75, I used a 2mm hook).
My squares measure about 10cm square.

Mine are turning out really lacy and dainty! I wonder what they would look like with thicker Cotton yarn? I have seen so many beautiful combinations.
