GSC Week 32

This week I have been using the book "Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs" by Edie Eckman. I used some of her patterns for the snowflake squares I did last week. I found some great granny squares in her book, so I will be using the patterns for the next few weeks. Her book can be found on Amazon, it is worth a look.

The motifs in Edie's book do not have fancy names just numbers, so I will give the numbers of the ones I did.

GS # 219-Motif # 88 in the book

                               This was an easy square to do and would be great for a beginner.

GS # 220-Motif # 93 in the book

                                         I would call this one Eye Spy, it reminds me of a spy glass.

GS# 221-Motif # 95 in the book

                              This should be called diamonds in diamonds, it was another easy square.

GS# 222-Motif # 96 in the book

            This square looks like a spider web and looks similar to the "X marks the spot" square that I did back in January.

GS# 223-Motif # 100 in the book

                                            The cross in this square looks like it is made of flowers.

GS# 224-Motif # 102 in the book

                    This block looks like a cross with rays of light behind it or even a bullseye!

GS# 225-Motif # 103 in the book

     I would call this square the wave! This is an easy square that would be great for beginners.

As I get further along in my Granny Square Challenge, I feel like I am repeating some patterns. The only difference is doing a double crochet instead of a single crochet. How many different granny square patterns can there really be?

I hope you enjoy this weeks squares!

Happy crocheting!

  1. I'm partial to the first block this week. #219 reminds me of a daisy that is missing its center. Have you ever seen a pattern for a thread spool pin cover? If so a machine or two or three in San Diego would love to have one. Here is one that is crochet that I've been admiring.
