This is the last square in the Moroccan Square series. It has a central pattern and the rest of the square is worked at the back of the central motif. Very easy square and also using back post stitches.
Next week I will share borders that can be used for your projects. I sincerely hope that you enjoyed the patterns. I have another series in the pipeline, but I will keep you posted. My book on different squares will also be released in May 2017 and I will share the info shortly.

The dense interesting centre is formed by cluster and chain layers that gradually develops into and open lacy structure. I have used all the basic stitches but nothing complicated. It is an easy pattern with a lovely motif.

This square works very well with colour play and the simple yet effective design will transform a blanket of cushion. The treble stitches and clusters are the main stitches in this design that compliment the shell cross. This is not a difficult design.

At first glance, the square looks a little bit more challenging than the previous squares. The only reason for this is that you work stitches in front and at the back of the rounds. At the end it forms a network of colour and layers. I also used front post stitches and clusters. By following the diagram, it will be really easy to do.
TIP: the square tends to be larger than the other squares – change to a slightly smaller hook if it is the case.

The combination of open spaces works well with the use of puff stitches and clusters. The centre four loop flower or motif is a main feature of most of the moroccan tiles. Instead of filling up the leaves of the flower, I tried to leave it open to make cross but also to link up with the lace work of rounds 8-10.

This one is, in my opinion, the easiest of all the squares. I have used all the basic stitches, but also included clusters and popcorn stitches. The corners are formed working three double treble crochet stitches together in the designated stitches as explained in the pattern. By following the diagram it should not be a problem.

This is by far my favourite square with a dainty lacy look. The lacy effect is due to the chains that are used throughout the patten with lots of open spaces. In this square the centre flower motif is formed by working at the back of the stitches by folding the previous round to the front and thus creating layered work.
