I’ve been seeing more and more gradient and ombre patterns popping up lately, and I love it! I’m quite fond of the way they can subtly move from one color into the next, so that you often can’t even notice where the changes happened! There are many ways to achieve this look, from a yarn that does it for you, to pacts of yarns made to work together as a gradient, to picking out the yarn colors on your own. I have searched around and found several examples of these fun color changes for this week’s round up!

A while back I was approached by Red Heart to make a throw with snowflake squares. Well, I thought that could  be fun, and it turns out I wasn’t the only one. The Snowflake Throw is the January Featured Throw, and it is quite popular!

Small squares are great for so many reasons. They can be used to make small blankets, cute little bags, appliques and so much more. They can be mixed with other sizes to make a mix and match blanket as well. So many uses, and so many squares. Here are just a few.

Tamara's Kismet Square Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Tamara’s Kismet Square
Free Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

After creating the 6″ Jacob’s Square and the 12″ Kismet Square built off of it, and making quite a few of each square (more on the reason for that next week),  I had some ideas for another version. There was a slight edit I wanted to make on the first round, and then a fun different look for the top. That is where Tamara’s Kismet square came from. Do you want to know how it got its name? Well you will have to wait until the new year to find that out!

Tamara’s Kismet Square uses the traditional Jacob’s Ladder stitch in the center, and is bordered by the Jacob’s ladder stitch flipped on its side. This creates a lot of fun texture and a really nifty~looking square, if I do say so myself. 😉 The idea for turning the Jacob’s ladder stitch on its side came from this awesome pattern. The square can be used in blankets, pillow covers, as wall art, or in some other way you can imagine. You can even make a quick baby blanket with 6 of these squares and a border, it works for boys or girls. Just have fun with it!

Kismet 12 inch Crochet Granny Square by Jessie At Home

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.
