My 102nd square, for my Nuts about DNA afghan, is the beautiful, “Mrs. Lukas Square” a paid pattern by Diana Krenz aka koernerklaus.
What can I say about the “Mrs. Lukas” square?
I love, love, love it. The texture, the detail, the stitch definition, the simplicity of the pattern and how beautiful it looks in any colour.If you haven’t made it, it really is a must so please pop on over to Ravelry and buy yourself a coffee. It’s only €2.66 which is about £2.46, thats less than a cup of coffee and so much more fun. The colour possibilities are endless, it would look absolutely stunning as a stand-alone afghan or mixed up with Diana Krenz other breathtaking squares or you could make it in to a bag, a scarf, anything your heart desires.
Trust me you can’t go wrong with this square or any other of Diana Krenz creations. She even has a gorgeous border pattern called Persian Dream Border, which is free on Ravelry, it would look splendid with any of her squares.
As you may have read, I’m using Scheepjes Stonewashed for this humungous afghan, in colours
