Our first square for July is our solid square. The stitch pattern for this is a basic cluster stitch pattern. It produces a fairly solid fabric - although it's not thick and sturdy like the waffle or basketweave stitch patterns done in previous blocks. It has more drape and flexibility to it without the 'holey' look that is characteristic of some crochet stitch patterns. I love how it turned out in this Felicity Headwrap.
Here's block #13. Did you catch that number? #13 out of 24. You're more than halfway there now!
