Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Weekly Crochet Square: Square 10

This week is an easy one. We will be working in the back loop only of a half double crochet stitch. This results in a nice decorative ridge in your work.
Unfortunately, I have sprained my crocheting wrist, so I was only able to work up a small sample for you. See the monstrous brace I have to wear? It goes almost up to my elbow, and I can't bend or twist my wrist. Boo!
 I promise, the stitch is easy, though, and I am sure you can get the jest of it.
BLO Half Double Crochet Square 
What You Need:
Size K crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn

Stitch Abbreviations:
ch = chain
hdc = half double crochet

blo = back Loop only (instead of inserting the hook through both loops in the top of the stitch in the previous row, insert it in the back loop only)

What You Do:
Ch 23
Row 1: Hdc in the third ch from the hook and in each ch across. Turn. (I usually put your stitch count in parenthesis here) (21)
Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in blo of each stitch across. Turn. (21)
 Rows 3-18: Ch 2, hdc in each stitch across. Turn. (21)
Finish off.
