Block #3: Persephone Square
by Cre8tion Crochet
Above is the original made in 3 colors! Below, you can see my version, made with my 4 colors!
My Notes: This pattern takes a bit of time and concentration, but the instructions are very well written. And the end result is worth it! This square is the perfect blend of lace and texture. That said, I ended up handling the corners slightly differently than written, working the corner dcs of Rnd 13 between the puff sts of Rnd 11 *and* the corner of Rnd 12. So you can do whichever you like!

Sizing: This one came out perfectly to 12″ for me. But everyone’s gauge and tension level are different so be sure to measure as you go, and check your gauge. Learn how to adjust for size HERE to make sure all your squares are the same size. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
What I Did: I used a Furls US-J, 6.0 mm hook and Red Heart With Love, and my color scheme was as follows – Rnd 1: Navy; Rnd 2: White; Rnd 3: Navy; Rnd 4: True Blue; Rnd 5: Bluebell; Rnd 6: Navy; Rnd 7: White; Rnd 8: Navy; Rnd 9: True Blue; Rnd 10: Bluebell; Rnd 11: White; Rnd 12: Bluebell; Rnd 13: True Blue; Rnd 14: Navy; Rnd 15: White.
This square benefited from a light bit of blocking. To block this square, I used the wet blocking method and a Chetnanigans BlocksAll Ultra blocking board and Perfecting Strips.

Tried to get a pdf version. No luck. Came out with no spaces between words. Went to blog to purchase pdf half off with coupon code “sweet.” not only did I not get the discount, didn’t get the file either.
Hi Bari! When I put the URL of the pattern into https://www.printfriendly.com it works fine for me. Have you checked out the tutorial at https://www.mooglyblog.com/print-pattern-use-print-friendly-button-moogly/ ? If that doesn’t work for your browser, and copy and pasting into a word doc doesn’t work, then there are always screenshots and the Clean Print extension to try as well.
After blocking, and putting blocks together for the finished item, giving to recipient -do *they* have to block after wearing or using??
For a project like this, no – just normal washing and drying should be fine. 🙂 For something like a sweater or shawl, the answer could be different – just like some sweaters and other pieces need to be reshaped and laid flat to dry.
CAL 2019 Block #3 Your Colorway
I am following your colors. On this block, rnd 6, you state Navy. The photo of your block looks like rnd 6 is white. Can you clarify rnd 6 and remaining rnds please. Thanks -Colleen
Yes, Rnd 7 is worked behind Rnd 6.
I’m so excited and happy that I found your CAL for this year! I looked at the ones for last year and for 2017 which I will be doing at some point but I’m going to jump in a little late with this years CAL! These blocks so far are gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing these and I can’t wait to get my blog up and going to share my OWN granny square block designs! Such beautiful work Tamara!
😀 Thank you so much Jamie, I hope you enjoy it!
I did get the round colors figured out.
I see the pattern for Rnd 13 is dc and Rnd 14 is sc..
Your version appears to be Rnd 13 sc and Rnd 14 dc. Is this correct?
No, other than the corners I followed the pattern as written. 🙂
I absolutely loved this 2019 cal , but I haven’t received any new one for2020 , I hope you are still doing your lovely squares , please let me in on your new one
Hi Barb! Yes, the new one has just begun! Here’s square 1: https://www.mooglyblog.com/cal-2020-1/
I’m decorating my living room in nautical – blue and white so the 2019 CAL afghan would look great in it. Thank you for making your patterns free , I’m 64 and on a fixed income so can’t afford to pay for patterns , bit of a struggle to buy the yarn as I have to eliminate something I usually buy , but this will be worth it – perfect for my living room. Happy and blessed new year.
