The incredibly intricate design on the Balancing Act Crochet Square features a scale weighing two items. Even with only one shade of yarn, this granny square pattern paints a picture that puts you in the moment of balance. Though an in-depth design like this will be a challenge, it is one you will certainly be up to, thanks to the pictures included with the crochet instructions. This square pattern will give you a chance to test your skills and create a symbolic piece that can serve as a devotional, special reminder, or even as the start of a crochet blanket pattern.
