Star-Crossed Spring

Project info
Star Crossed by Helen Shrimpton
Afghan block
Hooks & yarn
4.0 mm (G)

For my Whispers of Spring Sampler.
Using the Canada Goose block border.

I substituted a round of sc for the last three rounds, to get the block to match my others for this sampler afghan.

A nice, textural pattern with a central motif that can pass for either a star or a flower, depending on your need. I added a little surface crochet to spice it up-- and to help work in/balance all the colors.

(The added lime is just sc on top of the brown. The pink in the center is two rounds of single crochets on top of the “spokes” of the first round, with 3-chain picots in between each single crochet.)

The center of the block is bowing a little bit, but not too bad, and I hope that might lessen once the blocks are joined together.
