Straight Hooked Companion Square Friendship Blanket CAL

Hello my friends! This is the last month of the Friendship Blanket CAL, hosted by my friends at Sunflower Cottage Crochet, and my second square design is here on the blog for FREE! This square is much less complex than the Dolphin Stitch Square, but it sure does look pretty when completed.

Straight Hooked Companion Square FREE Crochet Pattern

The Companion Square is made using only double crochets and chains, which means it works up quickly and the pattern is easy to follow. I made my square in about an hour, which included the design time! If you are unfamiliar with the v-stitch, I have created a Jumprope video tutorial for you:
