Triangles Take 2 Scrapghan Block


After looking over some patterns in The Great Granny Crochet Book that were similar to the Edie Eckman Motif #122 pattern, I think I figured out how to change colors each round without having to cut the yarn each time.  But instead of doing the same pattern again, I decided to make a two colored diagonal block from a regular block...  I know, I have a tendency to complicate things.


I chose this pattern, "Beach Cover-Up" from The Great Granny Crochet Block, and combined methods from other blocks in this book with Edie Eckman's Motif #112 to use two colors on each round with minimal yarn cuts.


I think I was channeling Alessandra's scarf when it came time to choosing the colors for this square!

Overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  However, I don't like that there is a noticeable difference between the corner where the round starts (and ends) and the corner where the color change is... But perhaps I'm nitpicking...  Regardless, I think I have a better grasp on this technique!

    1. I can't make one from this particular pattern since it isn't mine.... but I've been thinking of coming up with a similar pattern, so I'll see what I can do!
