Let’s lace things up.
Without a doubt, lacy squares are some of the best building blocks for attractive afghans, blankets and throws. So, here are some lacy square project ideas to help inspire your next project. While a square-based project is not revolutionary in itself, the astounding patterning of voids and solid sections gives these their own vibrant flair. Moreover, these are not particularly hard to work up, so even ambitious beginners can get in the groove. However, because there is so much room to modify and customize, there is no limit to what veterans can do with these squares as well.
This square doily measures 5″ to 61/2″, depending on the gauge and the border you choose to make. I recommend the pattern to intermediate crocheters. If you are a pro or want to become familiar with the popcorn, cluster and picot stitches, the Sylvanweave Square pattern will be a perfect fit for your next project!
