Kismet 12 inch Crochet Granny Square by Jessie At Home

Kismet Square
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This 12” crochet square utilizes the Jacob’s Ladder stitch in 2 directions to add texture and interest to the design. It is built off of the 6” Jacob’s square. You can change the color pattern around for a variety of looks. Kismet is gender neutral, making it great for a baby blanket! The idea for turning the Jacob’s ladder stitch on its side came from an awesome pattern designed by Tamara of Moogly. I’m not sure if she was the first to do it, but that is the first place I saw it.
