So we had a bit of fun with block 4, putting it out for a public vote, and I can now reveal that the square that received the majority vote was ‘F’ – the ‘Harriett’ Square! Although we are on block 4 there is still plenty of time to catch up – the full schedule and details about the CAL can be found here.
I love this fun design which plays with an octagonal shape inside a square. It’s all created with simple stitches and produces a lovely end result.
This square is currently free on Ravelry (and has been since June 2013).

Harriett Square 12″ by Carolyn Christmas
- Hook: UK 5 mm / US Size H
- Yarn: Aran / 10 ply / Worsted / Weight #4
- Colours: Works great with up to 5 different colours changes but I would suggest at least 2 so you can see the pattern.
- Pattern available in US terminology for conversion chart please click HERE
As the designer says this block can ruffle a bit in the early rounds but the later rounds straighten it out. You can also block the square to flatten if required.
Ta dah!! This is my version of this square using my colour palette (I blogged about this here). I love how it turned out!
Don’t forget to stay tuned for the next block to be released on March 4th (or 5th)

In case you’re following along, here is square 4. Read through the post to find the link to the next square for KCACO-CAL2015. 🙂
Maybe one day soon I’ll block mine and share what I’ve been making with these. I’ve never blocked before and worry that I’ll mess it up so I’m waiting. lol (insert chicken sounds here)
Pretty! (Though I like your version better) 🙂
Thank you Kay, I love how just changing colours around can make a block look totally different. It’s the great thing about crochet!
You’re so right about that 🙂
