The Crochet Monday Square is the third motif in the 7 Day Sampler Afghan Stitch Along. This crochet project can be easily completed in just one week.

The Monday Square features a bit of texture in the center and then uses some quick V stitch and shells to complete the motif.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    I am only 3 squares in, but this is my least favorite. I am working it assembly line and am happy I have all the first rows finished. But I do have to say, it’s beautiful. Thanks for coming up with this project for us to work on and thank you so much for making the videos that go with it. I’m outside my comfort zone and liking it.
