Another Square for Your Afghan . . . Checkerboard Square!

If you  have been working on the afghan project with your grandchildren, this is square 24 - only one more to go after this! This square is from the book, 300 Classic Blocks for Crochet Projects and is a quick and easy pattern.

Directions -

  • ch 29
  • Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook cd in next ch * ch 1 skip next ch dc in each of next 3 ch rep from * across turn
  • Row 2: ch 4 (counts as dc ch 1) skip first 2 dc * dc in next dc dc in next ch-1 space dc in next dc ch 1 skip next dc rep from * across to turning ch dc in 3rd ch of turning ch turn
  • Repeat row 2 until square measures approx 9"
As always, as you work on this square with your grandchild, take time to talk with them about the things which are happening in their lives. Share how life is like crocheting . . . you have to keep with the pattern for awhile before you are able to see the finished project! Keep following God and in time you'll be able to see the finished "project"! Spend time praying with your grandchild for their parents and for them to grow in their walk with Jesus!
