Meet Ilsa (and Rick) - the fourth installment to the Lovestruck collection, a series of twelve star-crossed afghan blocks sure to melt your heart.

Each block in the Lovestruck collection comes with the pattern for a 9 inch afghan block and the pattern for a complimentary border that will bring the square to 12 inches. Better yet, all of the borders are interchangeable among the other blocks in the collection so you can mix things up and play matchmaker! Instructions are also included for the borders to be used on other square or rectangle projects.

Designer’s note: It’s hard to say I have a favorite design, but this one jumped right on to the list and is fighting for a top position. It’s fun, different, challenging at times, and the extra dimension in the center adds so much interest. The border is also fun and I think you’ll love using it for all kinds of crochet projects.

Two versions of the pattern are included for download - a photo-rich version and a no-frills, printer-friendly, text-mostly version that includes a single small photo.
