My Notes: Lindsey has created a lovely, clear, easy-to-understand square. Which makes sense, as she's a tech editor as well as a designer! She has included a lot of helpful notes, so be sure to read them all before you begin.
Sizing: My square came out a bit small, so I added one more round of sc, working (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner st. But everyone's gauge is different so be sure to measure as you go! 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.
Rnds 1 - 3: Tangerine
Rnds 4 -7: Cornsilk

This square required a little bit of blocking. I used the wet blocking method, or you could use light steam.
And if you live in North America, there is an additional option!
There are 2 purchase options: Pattern Pack ($9) or Easy Print ($3)
PDF file pattern pack includes:
- PDF file with the Bold Bloom Crochet Blanket Square Pattern, written with standard crochet abbreviations.

- Easy Print option is just that last file.

And of course, we'll be back for 2023!
I'll be joining my squares together over the next month, and I'll come back and show off my finished blanket on December 30th, 2022, live! And at that time, I'll share the colors I've picked for 2023, as well as the schedule and other details.
If you've participated in past years, you've got a pretty good idea of how it will go. The only change we're making for 2023 is giving designers the choice of using Red Heart With Love or Caron One Pound. They are great substitutes for each other, and this way we'll have even more color choices!
