September Squares

I’m still on track with my block-a-month afghan squares! I’m getting really excited to finish and have a beautiful, unique, colorful afghan.

Both 12” squares this month were fairly simple and relaxing to crochet. The square on the left is the September Star square by Aurora Suominen. It has a little bit of texture on the central flower, and I like the outer border a lot. I used the Fresco y Seco, Teal Feather, and Whales Road colorways of Malabrigo Rios (which is the yarn my entire afghan is made of).

The other 12” square is Marigold by Polly Plum. For this square, I used colorways Glazed Carrot, Sunset, and Archangel. The fall colors seem very appropriate for September.

The 6” square this month is my favorite. It’s a crocodile-stitch-in-the-round flower motif called Croco-Dahlia by Joyce D. Lewis. Crocodile stitch is a little time consuming (as well as yarn consuming!), but I like how it looks, so it’s nice to be able to include it. I also really enjoy how the little lumps around the center turned out. This square is crocheted in colorways Fresco y Seco, Purple Mystery, and Lettuce.

I’ve been thinking about how to assemble my afghan once I get closer to finishing all the squares. I can’t decide if I want it to be rectangle or something more complex… I have a few ideas. Only 3 more months to go!
