I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Today’s post is all about the colorful play all the crocheters love. It is amazing how versatile most designs are and how easy it is to change their character by using different yarn styles and colors. This phenomenon lets us come back to our favorite patterns all year round as all we have to do is get creative with the right shades. Color Shifting Squares are going to surprise you!

Shifty Little Square

This square really is quite shifty. As you work the pattern, you use back and third loops and alternate between popcorn, picot and crossed stitches. This gives it the appearance of the square “growing” from the inside and morphing shape as it does. It’s really quite beautiful and different enough that it will make your square-based afghans or blankets really unique. The pattern is designed for 9 and 12-inch squares.
