Funny story. I’ve been doing some serious reorganizing of my work space the past month. I needed to find a way to separate work from rest, so I decided it was time I make myself more of a “working area” within my home. Upon deciding this, many of my projects had to be packed away temporarily. Guess what was last to be unpacked?
My Marvel squares.
So I ended up momentarily forgetting that this little project of mine existed. Thankfully I have anxious readers who have been wondering when the next square was going to be released and they reminded me that I need to get my little butt in gear!
Hawkeye is actually one of my favourite characters in the Marvel universe. I feel like he is a bit of an unsung hero, causing him to be brooding and mysterious.
I LOVE the way this square turned out! I was worried that it wouldn’t look the way I had envisioned, but after testing it I managed to prove myself wrong.
I’m going to be quick and to the point with this post. I know many of you have been waiting for this magical moment. Here are the grids for Square #6:
As always, don’t forget to print off the grid made of letters and cross each square off as you go. It seems redundant, but I can promise you that it will save you a huge headache in the future. P stands for purple and W stands for white (yes I know it is written in black). Fairly simple!
For ease of designing the grid (and also the horrendous colour selection I had available to me through my cheap editing software), the grid is shown in a vibrant purple. I am planning on using more of a dark eggplant and white for the target. If you were wanting a bit of a darker look, you could even change the white of the target to black or dark gray!
You have a lot of free reign with this square. The colour changes are fairly simple, and we already have practice working out a circle shape from our Captain America Square. I can’t wait to see all of your creative ideas!
Don’t forget to use the hashtag #marvelgraphghan on Facebook or Instagram so I can stalk you all and creep your pictures.It really is a favourite past-time of mine.
Just joining us now? Where have you been?! If you are a little lost, here are some links to the previous squares we have done:

When are the next squares going to be uploaded? Am enjoying this series x
One more is coming this weekend! Thank you for your patience 🙂
Eagerly waiting for the next square… completed the rest 🙂
Love nd appreciate the effort u r putting into this. Can’t express how happy i felt when i came across this series when i was wondering abt my boy’s christmas gift 🙂
I have a question. Not having realized that the yarn I chose made significantly smaller squares, is there a way to add say another outter square with out doing the entire square over and buying new yarn? And with out it being horribly noticable?
Thanks in advance.
I would actually recommend just blocking the square! If it is only smaller by a small amount it can easily be fixed with simple blocking (essentially stretching out the fabric). I wouldnt recommend adding another square to the outside just in case that increases the size too much. Then when you are dealing the squares together it might pucker and bulge in areas due to the extra size
