8 ply yarn in 3 colours
4mm crochet hook
The original pattern comes from the book 200 Square Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton. I have been regularly making one per week, with the goal that by the end of the year I will have enough to put together a blanket. This block came together pretty easily, which unfortunately cannot be said for all of Ms Eaton's patterns, either I am terrible at crochet or her patterns are rife with errors, and many take a lot of adjustments to get a uniform 6" in size.
