This block has a different version of my favorite stitch....
the basket weave stitch.
I found this pattern on Ravelry and it is a free download.
A big Thank You to Donna Kay Lacey for the patern!
My instructions probably aren't very clear and I apologize for that in advance.
I'm writing them out in my own way mainly for me to go back and make more squares for another afghan, but I will be more than happy to try to help you understand my way of writing if you are interested in making some of these squares.
Just leave a comment or email me.
I made the square as directed and then added my extra rows to make the size square I'm using.
So here we go.....
The Raverlry download link is here:
I started with white to add the extra: 2 SC, ch 2 in each corner and then 18 SC in the BL of the DC of the previous row.
Darker Blue: 2 SC, ch 2 in each corner and then 11 SC in the BL of the previous rows SC, ch 1 and then 11 more SC and then do the corner. So you should have a total of 13 SC, ch 1, 13 SC on each side for a total of 27 stitches.
Light Blue: 2 HDC, ch 2, 2 HDC in each corner and then 27 HDC in the BL of each SC of the previous row for a total of 31 stitches on each side.
Darker Blue: 2 SC, ch 2, 2 SC in each corner and 31 SC in each SC of the previous row for a total of 35 SC.
