You can click on this link to go their page for original post. I am going to change the verbiage a little but this is completely their design and CAL.
The schematic below is the plan we will be using to be sure the stitches compliment each other and that we are working in the correct colors. Each Tuesday of each month I will announce the Square of the Week and instruct you on the stitch- and row- counts to achieve your 9″ squares. I’ll also let you know which two colors you’ll need for the week.
To get the most out of this experience, you’ll want to head on over to Savvy Kingdom’s I Love Crocheting Facebook group to join the Royal Hookers, where you can ask questions and share pictures of your progress! Please jump right into the discussion and don’t be shy!
