Third Dynasty of UR 12″ Afghan Block Square c. 2016 Margaret MacInnis
Inspired by cuneiform writing, I strove to create a block that has multiple layers of interest, and the more you look at it, the more you see. No hidden messages (at least I don’t think I put any in there, but if you are looking for secret treasure, you’ll have to hook it and figure out for yourself..)

Yarn in two colors: Color A (less than 15 g–1/2 oz or 25 yds ) and Color B (about 60 g–2 oz or 100 yds).
Yarn in three colors: See photo above by wg96girl for ideas; Yarn in more colors to achieve variation as above. Block shown also has Canada Goose border.
Hook: I used an H or 5.0 mm but I am somewhat of a loose hooker; I think most people would use an I or 5.5 mm hook
