After creating the 6” Jacob’s Square and the 12” Kismet Square built off of it, and making quite a few of each square (more on the reason for that next week), I had some ideas for another version. There was a slight edit I wanted to make on the first round, and then a fun different look for the top. That is where Tamara’s Kismet square came from. Do you want to know how it got its name? Well you will have to wait until the new year to find that out!

Tamara’s Kismet Square uses the traditional Jacob’s Ladder stitch in the center, and is bordered by the Jacob’s ladder stitch flipped on its side. This creates a lot of fun texture and a really nifty~looking square, if I do say so myself. ;) The idea for turning the Jacob’s ladder stitch on its side came from this awesome pattern. The square can be used in blankets, pillow covers, as wall art, or in some other way you can imagine. You can even make a quick baby blanket with 6 of these squares and a border, it works for boys or girls. Just have fun with it!
