Easy Cluster Square

Thanks so much to Lion Brand yarn for supplying the yarn for this project and supporting our Crochet Along!

I am so excited to finally be able to share my first contribution to the CAL with you!

If you haven’t read about the CAL this is how it is going to work:

  • Every weekday (Monday-Friday) a new pattern will be posted on one of our ten blogs
  • Share your progress and post photos of your squares in our facebook group.
  • At the end you’ll have twenty 12” squares easy to be pieced together into a beautiful afghan ready for Christmas
  • We will be hosting a fabulous giveaway starting November 21. You could win Lion Brand yarn to make your own afghan, $100 CASH money, OR our COMPLETED AFGHAN! That’s right, lovely Alexis from Persia Lou is going to be piecing all of our squares together and shipping it out to one very lucky winner. :)

Spread the love! We would love if you wanted to invite friends to crochet along with us! If you’d like to add a button to your blog or website you can grab this one here:

And this is a quick preview of the squares, which will be coming along your way in the next couple of days:
