Thank you for sharing that cool pattern. Though I'm now working diligently on on a destashghan using leftovers in the red family, I'm eager to start on one that will be made up of 12-inch squares using leftover shades of white and off-white. Your clouds square is a perfect candidate to be included, along with those by other 'ville members. I can hardly wait to try it.

I couldn't wait, so I had to stop my current project to try your square. No disrespect to your photo, which was fine, but the beauty of your pattern can't be appreciated fully except "in person," where you can really see the dimensionality. I made it in white-white to go into a sampler afghan eventually.

 

As to the pattern, I had a little difficulty following Round 4 and the subsequent BPDC rounds, simply because you didn't follow the usual convention of saying to repeat something from { to }, ( to ), etc., and instead said "do this." This wasn't a problem, however, because it was easy for me to figure out pretty quickly from a combination of your text and the photo, and it worked out fine.

 

Thank you for sharing your creativity with us. The square really does evoke puffy white clouds.

Made the square in #10 thread w/ #7 hook. The square came out 5x5.

Can't figure out how to get the picture on here.

That is very useful information! I'm not a threadie, but sometimes I want to do thread patterns in worsted yarn, and now I have a guesstimate on how they'll come out. For example, there are some adorable crocheted bird applique patterns one etsy.com, but the measurements are shown for No. 10 thread; now I'm guessing they'll turn out a bit more than double in yarn. Thank you!
