Crochet Thursday Square

7 Day Sampler Afghan Thursday Square by Jeanne Steinhilber

7 Day Sampler Afghan Thursday Square by Jeanne Steinhilber

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

The Thursday Square features 3-D flowery center by crocheting around twice, first using the front loops, then the back loops. This is the most challenging and textured of all the 7 Day Sampler motifs.

The first 3 rounds of this pattern is the most challenging of all of the squares.  If you feel it’s beyond your level, Michael has provided an alternate beginning in the tutorial of the video.

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.

    Hi. Really love the squares. Is there by a chance a diagram on how to do them. I have seen the video

    1. Mikey says:

      The diagrams take about 6 – 8 hours each. I am lacking the time right now to do that. I’m sorry. I’m not quick at making them.
