Today’s square was designed by Bella over at Three Fates Creation. The Maia Square is block #8 of our 2021 Stash Busting Crochet Along.

Here is the original square made by Bella. Mine is pictured below.
I really love the center of this square! It reminds me of a snowflake. There’s rounds of traditional granny stitches surrounding the flower and then the square is finished off with some crossed double crochets.
Sizing: Due to differences in yarn and hook sizes of this pattern I had to leave off some rounds to get the correct size. I’ll outline what I did below. This one also will need some blocking.

Here’s What I Did: I did only 3 rounds of the granny stitch because I wanted to have room for at least one rounds of the crossed double crochets. I also left off the last round of crossed double crochets because I was getting close to size and I wanted to be able to add the single crochet border.
Here’s how I changed color:
Rnd 1-4: Fisherman
Rnd 5-7: Silver Gray
I omitted rnd 8
Rnd 9-10: Linen (Watch your corner stitches on this round. Its 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc not the 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc it was in previous rounds.)
I omitted rnd 11
Rnd 12: Taupe
