Deken haken met Year of Squares Crochet Along 2020 -

Are you ready for a fun crochet project? The Year of Squares Crochet Along started on January 1st, 2020! This crochet project is a pattern series by Marjan from Hobbydingen. Each month of 2020 we published the crochet pattern for a square. With these 12 squares you can create a beautiful and textured blanket! On this page you will find all the information for the crochet along and links to the crochet patterns.

The Year of Squares

In 2020 we published 12 crochet patterns for squares. Each month a new crochet pattern was shared. All the squares are 30x30cm/12x12in and have different stitch patterns. After 12 months all the squares were joined together to make a blanket with 12 different squares.

What you will need to make the blanket:

For this blanket I used Scheepjes Chunky Monkey Mid Grey 1099 (100% premium acrylic, 100g/116m or 3.53oz/127yd, Aran weight). I roughly used 1 ball of yarn for each square and 3 balls of yarn for joining the squares and the edge of the blanket. That is a total of about 13 to 15 balls. Detailed information about the amount of yarn is listed in each individual pattern and in the eBook. In addition to the yarn you will also need a crochet hook, a darning needle for weaving in all the ends, a pair of scissors and materials to block the squares.

The Crochet Patterns

Each crochet pattern was published on the first day of each month of 2020. The crochet pattern for joining the squares and making the edge of the blanket was published in December 2020. All the crochet patterns are available through Ravelry.

You can also buy the Year of Squares  eBook. The eBook will be 50% off from the total price of all the squares combined. The eBook is now available on Ravelry. This eBook includes all the information about the crochet along and detailed information for each square. The crochet pattern for each square was added on the 1st of each month.was
