A unique block designed and classed for ‘adventurous intermediate crocheters’. Excellent thicker block for afghans and block exchanges, it includes quite detailed instructions and row by row information. Addendum for 10” size included. Recommended for aran weight yarn, could also be made in worsted with modification to border rows, etc.

Photo Tutorial is from the Kitten’s Claw 9” version.

Colors should be highly contrasted for best effects, although several were made in various color combinations alternating lights and darks in opposition to the original, and they turned out beautifully!
