About the pattern

A beginner crochet pattern made up of squares arranged in one of many layouts, to fit any body size.

The disposition of the squares on a diagonal makes the fabric lay on a bias and allows it to mold to the body.

The diagonal crosses of puff stitches on each square create a mesmerizing texture on the surface of the garment, and the optional fringe adds a bit of playfulness to this simple design.

The pattern is designed for a full range of body sizes. You can use one of six layouts and add rows to the pattern for a custom size. No ease is included in the measurements.
