I’m an accomplished craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews on the topic of crocheting and other crafts. In my everyday work, 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 making our crochet society bigger and more popular. I’m interested in crafts and interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Squaring the Big Circle is a classic afghan, throw or area rug made using squares inset with roundels of various colors. The whole of the project is finished with a multi-row edge that gives it structural and visual completeness. As should be obvious, the size is easily adaptable to your needs, by adding squares as needed and extending the edging to cover the additional length. This colorful, playful pattern will be a great addition to your cottage or rustic room. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
