The modern crochet design textured square pattern Royal Touch is very easy to use to quickly create a blanket/afghan, pillow, bag, and more in any size you desire. The pattern will look best with a solid colour (colors), ombre or a long gradient yarn. The pattern is very easy to memorize and gives you a lot freedom for your creativity. You can make your item as large as you need. As well you can make smaller squares and join them together.

The pattern is appropriate for intermediate level crocheters. For beginners it would be challenging. For more experienced ones this would be a fun and relaxing project.
The pattern includes a detailed description, a stitch-chart and video tutorial in English (US terminology) and pictures to demonstrate final result.

Information about the color change:
If you are using more than one color to create a visual effect as in the pictures above change the color when you start an even round (2, 4, 6, …). Cut the previous color yarn and fasten off.
Changing two contrasting colors on each round is an option that creates different visual effect.

You can use the Royal Touch pattern to make an item in any size you prefer. Sizes of samples you will find below.

The samples of Royal Touch pattern were created using the following yarns and hooks:

One solid color - Super Baby (Iceyarns) - fine weight/fingering/sport/baby. Hook size 4 mm. 15 rounds = 10.5 in (26,5 cm) square.

Multi-color - Angora Print (Iceyarns) - fine weight/fingering/sport/baby. Hook size 3 mm. Please note that I had to control the color change. 15 rounds = 8.3 in (21 cm) square.

Gradient - Cakes Cotton Fine (Iceyarns) - fine weight/fingering/sport/baby. Hook size 3 mm. 33 rounds = 14.8 in (37,5 cm) square.
