Free Pattern: Window Pane Square 6″

Window Pane Squares

Window Pane Squares for Share a Square

This is the first square I freestyled. I was creating some squares for Share A Square, a bunch of people making squares that will magically turn into blankets for children with cancer, and realized it would be fun to start freestyling and to see where it took me. With a hook, yarn, and pattern free, I came up with the Window Pane Square. This is the pattern.

Using an H hook and worsted weight yarn this created a 6 inch square. I used a combination of Red Heart Soft and Red Heart Super Saver. If you need to make the square slightly larger, add more rows of SC or HDC as border rows.

Notes: You will join each row with a slip stitch and will not turn. Slip stitch to corner or finish off and add new yarn color at the corner at the end of each row. Repeat between () or [] where indicated.

Row 1: Ch4, Join with Slip Stitch

    I just wanted to tell you that I love your blog! I stumbled upon it today and have been browsing. I love the window pane squares, I’m going to use them to make some dishcloths and a pair of slippers.
    Thank you so much for sharing!

    I was wondering if the horse in your profile picture is done by crocheting. If it is I would love the directions for it and if not could you tell me how it is made. I love to make new things. I love to crochet.
