This square is a variation of the square designed for the Ladies of the Square Circle. I was about half way through making the squares when I decided I wanted a change but not a drastic one. So I changed the way the colors were put together and changed some of the rows and this square is the result.

2 different colors of Worsted weight yarn. Red Heart was used for the example in Raspberry and Navy.
Size H aluminum crochet hook.
Yarn Needle

Gauge: 4dc=1"
Yarn Thickness: 4mm
Finished Size: 8"x8"
Skill Level: Easy
