194::365 square 10
Pattern: "Square 10" from 101 Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser.
You know, ordinarily I would provide an Amazon link for the book I'm using, but I am not going to do it for this book. It was published in the '90s and is now out of print, and every single seller on Amazon (at this moment anyway) is charging ridiculously high prices for it. Seriously. Ranging from $50 to $261 right now! This sucks because there are some really great patterns in the book. There is a thread on the Ravelry crochet along group where people are discussing where to find the book for a reasonable price if you're interested in locating your own copy. Or check with your library! I wish it would be reprinted!
Isn't this square pretty neat? It is worked in diagonal rows. After the first two or three rows, I was happily crocheting away while watching a movie and never had to refer back to the pattern again! An entire afghan made in this stitch could be really pretty, and it would be nice and solid unless you used a giant hook.
