Since finishing the last temperature afghan, I have been working on squares.

I used one skein each of I Love This Yarn Light Taupe, Ivory, Mixed Berry and Greybeard. The yarn was a delight to work with. The Mixed Berry was a little thicker than the other colors. The Ivory was the thinnest. They were all the same yarn, same worsted weight. These were yarns I had purchased when I was looking for yarns for the Osgood scarf. They didn't make the cut. :-)

I used an I hook and once again I used my daughter's cross-stitch square pattern. You can find the square pattern at Crochet Cabana pattern page under Kate Smith. It is my favorite go-to square pattern as you can probably tell since I use it all the time.

I was able to get 12 squares in the Mixed Berry, Greybeard and Light Taupe and 11 squares in the Ivory. I'm not sure why the difference but maybe I used the Ivory for something else and don't remember. I did make a swatch of the colors for the Osgood so a little of each skein had been used.

Each square is approximately 6".

Happy crocheting!
