Begin the beguine with texture. This simple square is easy to make but delivers a lovely eye-pleasing effect. Join us for a crochet along where we delve into fun textures we can create with our hooks and just one color of yarn at a time.

This square is the first pattern in the Stardust Melodies Crochet Along hosted by Polly Plum which begins on May 19, 2017. The event consists of 24 texture rich afghan block patterns - 12 of which are free and available on and 12 that are paid and available here on Ravelry in the Stardust Melodies Crochet Along eBook. All 24 squares are included in printable PDF form in the eBook. Make some of them or make all of them! This crochet along is incredibly flexible so that you can make an afghan that’s just right for you.


Any yarn and appropriately sized hook can be used to make this pattern but you will get a different size square. Please visit for more information about this pattern and how to use it and how plan your own afghan.
