A – Uppercase Tapestry Crochet Block

A – Uppercase Tapestry Crochet Block

Here is the letter A, my first tapestry crochet pattern in a good long while. My goal is to do both the upper and lower case letters in 5″ blocks. Then, with those blocks, my goal is to make cool baby blocks and floor mats for the baby. Each block will contain the upper and lower case letter along with a noun or two that start with that letter. Floor mats will be the same. But wait till you see what I’m going to do with these blocks and mats… I have a lot of ideas, so we’ll see how many I’ll be able to complete. :)

I guess this is what you’d call a CAL, as it’ll take a good long time to complete all 26 blocks and mats. So join me and see where we end up and what we can create by the end of the year.

And if you’re not interested in blocks or mats, you can also use these blocks in baby blankets, in a banner, or wherever your imagination leads you.

  1. Hi I’m attempting to do a blanket simple single crochet throughout and on 1 of the corners I would like to incorporate the letter H..but I’m not sure how you do that without showing your work on the backside unless I sew it on but didn’t want to do that can you help me..
    Thanks carole

    1. So it’s actually simple to do… make your starting chains for the square as instructed, place a marker, then chain however many more you need to get the width that you want. Then for the first row, single crochet across up to your stitch marker, then follow instructions for the square to the end of the row. Then repeat… follow instructions for the square, place your marker and single crochet across. Turn, single crochet across to marker, etc… Hope that makes sense, but let me know if it doesn’t. :)
