The Tide Pool Afghan Square is one of the final crochet squares in the Make it Your Way Blanket Crochet Along!
Can you believe that we are already in the fifth week of the Make it Your Way Crochet Along? This week we will work on the final four squares of our blanket. Option A this week is this beautiful Tide Pool Afghan Square. The stitch pattern is simple and easy to work using half double crochet stitches worked in the front and back loops, but it also creates a beautiful subtle texture.

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. 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.
