With November's squares, we are going back to the basics. And by basics, I mean very basic. This is a simple double crochet square. I did add some flowers as embellishment when they were finished, but this is optional. You could have plain double crochet squares, double crochet squares with multi-color yarn, or use a few yarns and make them striped! We often don't give this humble stitch enough credit in the crochet world. I worked up this Amazing One-Stitch Afghan with only chain and double crochet stitches. This stitch is truly versatile if you put a little creativity into it! (Be sure to notice the sweet pug photobombing the pic, she follows me everywhere!)
