Hello friends! Can you believe Christmas is in just a week already? I haven’t even purchased one gift yet, nor have I crocheted any gifts. I’ve been so busy with new crochet patterns that I let the Calendar get away from me this year!
Today, I am delighted to share my contribution to the Love and Joy Blanket CAL hosted by Bear Rye and Knottie Hooks. My square is called the Serenity Square, and is full of great texture and fun stitch combinations.
Here are some of the squares that have been released earlier this month:

I had so much fun designing the Serenity Square. I used several techniques that you may not already be familiar with, such as the reverse slip stitch, which is great for hiding your join before crocheting in the 3rd loop on the next round. You can check out my Rumble channel for additional tutorial videos, but here are a couple for some of the techniques used in this square:
