I'm using these scrappy colors to make my crochet along blocks:
This block used some techniques that I haven't done before such as descending and ascending the "ladder" of previous rows. I admit that I breathed a sigh of relief when the rows below were finished!
For some reason my computer won't let me make the rest of these pictures larger but this is what the block looks like with the written instructions completed. It turned out to be 13".
Because it was already 13", I only bordered with a single crochet round of white and a single crochet round of the red.
What are you working on?
