Another year, another square CAL!
Now, if you don’t follow me on social media you might not have know that I decided to make another year of my squares. I was on the fence about it before, because I wasn’t sure that anyone even liked last year and while I enjoy making designs I would like to make myself, I also want to make sure people are making the patterns and engaging with the content. I looked at all the photos people posted on both IG and Ravelry, trying to decide if I wanted to do another year. From the feedback from people, and the fact that I love making and designing the squares, I decided to go for it and do another year. However, this year is different… I’ve got a theme. It’s coffee. I know that’s a shocker! Coffee is my favorite and my best co-worker, I thought I’d pay tribute to it with this project.

So to kick off the year, I decided to be rather literal with this square. This one just says “coffee.” Real original, right? I think this would be fun included in a collection of images – you can have lots of cups but the word coffee really makes it all come together. That makes sense to everyone else, right? I thought this would be a good way to start this year, a fun and very simple square that puts the theme right at the forefront. And in my mind I’m looking at the whole lapghan and coffee word squares look cute among the images. I really hope it turns out like that.
Now, like all my other squares, this pattern would be very adorable as a hot pad or pot holder, just double up on the pattern and use cotton yarn 😀

The squares this year are the same size as the ones from last year, so you can still incorporate the designs I made before if you liked the coffee themed ones from then.
So, this year the patterns will be coming out on the 3rd Tuesday of every month.
And sharing is caring- use the hashtag #2019TSAP and tag DivineDebris in the photos so I can see and share all your awesome squares!

Materials

  • US H (5.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Aran/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
  • Yarn needle

Gauge

  • 16 rows x 15 scs = 4”
    Ravelry link

Terms/stitches used

  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain

  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes

  • This pattern is worked flat back and forth in rows, with a turn at the beginning/end of the row, from the bottom up.
  • This square measures about 7.5″ unblocked and will come out with 8″ with a sc border (explained below). The photos do not feature a border.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Every stitch in this pattern is a single crochet. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many scs to make.
  • The use of bobbins like they did on Hodgepodge Crochet is suggested for this pattern.
  • Your square may need some light blocking.
  • You will need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Color A is off-white (Caron One Pound in Off-White) and color B is brown (Caron One Pound in Espresso).
