The Elizabeth Afghan Square features a favourite crochet stitch for many: the Elizabeth Stitch, sometimes called the mini bean stitch.
The Elizabeth stitch is a very fun stitch to work. Once you get the hang of it, there is a rhythm to it! It features a great solid texture that is the same on both sides which makes it a great crochet stitch for blankets.

Welcome to week three of the Make it Your Way Crochet Along. Thus far we have completed two different stitch patterns (four in each) for our crochet blanket. I can’t wait to see which stitches you choose! To recap, you’ll find the previous four stitch options here:
Week One, Option A: Spiked Sedge Stitch Afghan Square Crochet Pattern
Week One, Option B: Suzette Afghan Square Crochet Pattern
Week Two, Option A: Almond Afghan Square Crochet Pattern
Week Two, Option B: Extended Moss Stitch Afghan Square Crochet Pattern
For this crochet along I have encouraged you to use any worsted weight yarn. Each square will measure approximately 10.5-11 inches and you will make four of them in this stitch pattern to complete the blanket. You will need approximately 117 yards of a worsted weight yarn per square. For those curious, for my blanket I will be using the Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. Along with the yarn you will need a 6 mm (J/10) crochet hook.
A PDF of these squares will be available in my Etsy and Ravelry Shops AT THE END of this crochet along. I will post them as two separate blankets, one including the squares for option A and one for Option B. So stay tuned if you are looking for that PDF!
