I love the texture in this faux woven stitch. The stitch is dense and thick making for a very cozy blanket square.
The stitch itself, once you get the hang of it, it quite easy to work. It is a series of spiked double crochet stitches worked here in two different colours.
Feel free to switch up the colours, and add as many or as few as you would like!
For my square I have used the Simply Aran Yarn by Paintbox yarns. It is a #4 or medium/worsted weight 100% acrylic yarn. I have used the colours #235 (the grey) and #204 (the blue).
Paired with the yarn, I am using a Wooden Streamline Hook in Ebony by Furls Crochet.
For your square that measures approximately 12 x 12 inches, you will need approximately 100 yards per colour.
To finish off my square, I have worked a simple round of single crochet edging.
