Free Crochet Mitered Square Pattern


Happy Tuesday friends and welcome to Block # 7 in the 2021 Stash Busting Sampler CAL by The Unraveled Mitten!

Heather has put together an almost year long CAL where every 2 weeks a new crochet square will be released. Each square will be made by a different designer to have a beautiful blanket by the time you finish. What better way to work through your stash?

You can find more details and links to squares 1-6 on her blog here!

Today I'm happy to share with you the 7th square in the blanket, the Willamette Valley Square! The texture in this pattern reminds me greatly of the valley I grew up in and once it stuck, the name was here to stay!

Once you get started, the square will have a 4 row repeat and works up pretty quickly!

Gauge –

4 inch square = Rows 1-8

Special Stitches –

Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) –

YO, insert your hook from front to back around the post of the next stitch. YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops on your hook. YO, pull through remaining 2 loops on your hook.

Double Crochet Increase (DC INC) –

Complete 2 DC into the same stitch.

Corner (CR) –

To create our shape, we will be increasing into the corner of each row. Where you see CR below, we will DC INC, Ch 2, DC INC into the Ch 2 from the previous round.

Square -

Row 1: Create a magic cirle, Ch 2, DC INC, Ch 2, DC INC, pull tight to close but do not join. Ch 2 and turn.

Row 2: DC into the first 2 sts, CR, DC into the last 2 sts, Ch 2 and turn

Row 3: DC to corner, CR, DC to end, Ch 2 and turn


Row 4: *DC, FPDC*, *rep to corner, CR, *FPDC, DC*, *rep to end, Ch 2 and turn

Row 5: DC to corner, CR, DC to end, Ch 2 and turn

Row 6: *DC, Ch 1, Sk 1*, DC into the next st, *rep to corner, CR, *Ch 1, Sk 1, DC into the next st*, *rep to end, Ch 2 and turn

Row 7: *DC into the first st, DC into the Ch1 space*, *rep to corner, CR, *DC into the first st, DC into the Ch1 space*, *rep to end, Ch 2 and turn


Repeat rows 4-7 until your piece makes a 11.5 inch square. I ended with a total of 23 rows (ending with a repeat of row 7). On your last row, Ch 1 and turn (instead of a Ch 2). Do not fasten off, continue to border below.

Border – 

SC across around entire square completing with 2SC into each corner. (Two sides will be harder to gauge how many SC to complete, I used 46 down each of these sides to keep them even with the other 2 working sides.) Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Blocking -

Blocking is optional but highly recommended to help adjust the size/shape of your square. I used a garment steamer for my square but you can also use a spray bottle instead.


Steam Block –

Step 1 – Pin your crochet piece to your blocking mat. For this project make sure to pin it into a 12’x12’ square. With a mitered square it can be common for one corner to be a touch short, blocking into a 12’ square will help to retain its shape.

Step 2 – With your garment steamer hover over your square moving evenly back and forth until it is damp.

Step 3 – Let it dry and you are done. Once your piece is dry you can remove the pins.

Your mitered square is complete! I hope you have enjoyed making this pattern. Let me know if you have any questions with this pattern or any of my other patterns, I would be happy to help.

Thank you so much for stopping  by,
