Here are the patterns I used for this week:
GS #23-Clover Afghan Square
GS #24-Lacy Diamond Square
This square looks a little complicated but was not hard to figure out! The Lacy diamond Square pattern can be found here.
GS #25-Open Cross Square
This Square was not hard to make but a little challenging to get it perfectly straight. This pattern was designed by DragonflyMomof2 Designs and can be found here
This is another design by DragonflyMomof2 Designs, the pattern was easy to follow and would be great for a beginner. This pattern can be found here
GS#27-Friend Family Square
This design reminds me of a quilting square. The pattern directions shows the square done in different colors, so the squares each have a different look. If you do the whole square except the outside border in white it would look like a snowflake! This easy pattern can be found here
GS#28-Tic Tac Toe
Here is a twist on the traditional granny square, It is crocheted like a granny square but the center is done a little differently. This is an easy square to make and the directions are easy to follow. The Tic Tac Toe pattern can be found here.
GS#29-Easy as ABC
My square does not seem to look as good as the original pattern. I used a DK weight yarn and a smaller hook than the pattern called for and the cross in the middle of the square does not seem to show up as well. Maybe it is the colors that I used??? If you would like to try this square you can find the pattern here.
I hope everyone has a good week,
WOW!! Love all the Granny Squares, reminds me of quilt blocks. :) Hope you are having a special day today for your special Birthday!!ReplyDelete
I'll vote this week for the Lacy Diamonds block. Happy Birthday! SandiReplyDelete
Can someone help me with the Lacy Diamond Square? I want to make some for my mom's blanket but I'm confused on round 2. I don't understand what it means to make 1 sc around the closing sc of the previous round. I'm not new to crochet, but I've never seen a pattern with this in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)ReplyDelete
Hi Brandi, I sent you an e-mail explaining the pattern a bit. please let me know if you have any further questions.Delete
I don't think I recieved your emailReplyDelete
This is a pattern that I found on the internet. It is a great square but the directions are a little hard to understand.
with color 1, ch 4 join with a sl st to form ring
Round 1: ch 1, (sc, ch 2) 3 times in the ring, sc in the ring, ch 2, join with sl st in beginning sc,
Round 2: ch 1, sc in the same st (this is the sc that you joined with a sl st the end of round 1), sc in the next st, *(sc, ch2, sc) in the next ch-2 space, sc in the next st; repeat from * around to the last ch-2 space, (sc, ch2, sc) in the last ch-2 space, join with a sl st to beginning sc.
So instead of : (make 1 sc around the closing sc of the previous round), which can be confusing.
I would ch 1 and sc in the same st (this is the sc that you joined with a sl st the end of round 1). The ch 1 in this round does not count as a stitch.
Does that make sense???
Let me know,
