Welcome to Part 10 of the ABC blocks series!
You're here because you have completed all your Tapestry Crochet ABC squares, OR you have a bunch of other crochet squares you wish to turn into baby blocks.
This tutorial will show how to do that via written instructions and a video tutorial.
Let's get started!

Step 2: Starting with a slip knot in Focal Square Background Colour (or whatever colour you choose for the block’s edging), sc 13 tog across the side of squares that line up with the Yellow lines on the diagram – make sure WS are pressed tog, ch 1, f/o. Rep for Orange and Red Lines.
*The remaining lines / edges will be crocheted continuously.
Step 3: Starting with a slip knot in edging colour, *sc 13 tog across the side of the squares that line up with the Pink (1)line(s) on the diagram – again, make sure WS are pressed tog, sl st join to one of the edging corner sts available*. Rep from * to * for the next 7 lines by following the order and arrow directions on the Diagram – Purple (2), Blue (3), Aqua (4), Green (5) *no sl st required at the end of line 5 since it is the first time that corner is reached, Dark Green (6), Olive (7), Gray (8).
*Make sure you tuck tails of squares and first edges inside the square as you crochet.
Step 4: Continuing in the same fashion as for Step 3, sc the first sts of the Brown (9) lines tog. Pause here to stuff block before crocheting the block closed. ***Here’s where you’ll want to insert the nylon stocking (if using it). Insert one closed end of the stocking into the opening. Wrap open ends of stocking around block to open it up*** Stuff your block until it is slightly bulgy. ***Close end of stocking, tuck into block*** Finish crocheting the rem sts tog to close block. Sl st join to one of the edging corner sts available, f/o and tuck in rem ends.
*Put more stuffing than you think it needs because over time the stuffing will condense.
Step 5: Rep Steps 1-4 for rem blocks.
That’s all there is to it!
