Note: The sewing on this square looks a bit messy. I’ve since discovered a neater way of sewing weavettes together.
8 by 8 inches
Scraps of dk weight yarns in various colours
2 inch square loom
2×6 inch rectangular loom
Pattern for 1 Patchwork Square
Make ten 2×2 inch squares and two 2×6 inch rectangles.
Sew 9 of the 2×2 inch squares into 3 rows of 3 squares each.
Sew the 3 rows together. This is the nine patch centre of the square.
Sew 1 2×6 inch rectangle along one side of the nine patch square and put this piece aside.
Sew the remaining 2 inch square to one short end of the remaining 2×6 inch rectangle.
Sew this piece to the main piece so that the 2 inch square is butted up against the end of the first 2×6 inch rectangle.
A 50 inch square afghan can be made with these patchwork squares following the outline below. Note: You will need to make extra 2×2 inch and 2×6 inch weavettes to form the sashings on the top and right hand sides of the finished afghan.
