The Blackwork-Style Squares crochet pattern by Kathryn A. Clark brings the delicate art of embroidery into crochet. Featuring Hobbii Amigo and Hobbii Winter Glow yarn, it is ideal for intermediate crocheters who like working with intricate detail. This project is also a perfect opportunity for you to explore the interlocking filet crochet technique.

The Blackwork-Style Squares pattern calls for a 3.5 mm hook, allowing for very fine stitching in this interlocking-method project. It features a geometric design reminiscent of traditional blackwork embroidery but is much more three-dimensional due to the cable-like effect.

These squares can be used individually as decorative hot pads or joined together to create a stunning pillow cover or blanket. Whether you decide to make a true statement piece or a king-size afghan, this project combines aesthetic appeal and functionality. For the intermediate crocheter looking for a touch of embroidery flair, the Blackwork-Style Squares pattern makes a perfect choice!
