Hi Guys 😊 I hope you are enjoying your back holiday weekend. If you have been on the ‘gram lately you might have seen a few posts going around about littleyarnbunny. Unfortunately she has become seriously unwell whilst attempting to make another blanket for charity. I was originally going to post a different square this week, but I have changed the square to align with littleyarnbunnys original squares. The plan is for the crochet community to make many granny squares to make blankets for charity in honor of littleyarnbunny.

If you wish to find out more about this please go and check out stitchedupcraft; we will be making white simple squares with a rainbow motif. I will be making one for our CAL, and several for this community blanket. I hope you guys will too ❤️

Now, let’s get crocheting!

Guys, we’re at part 10 of this CAL already! Where does time go euhh =D

Happy Sunday, hope you have all had a lovely week; we got back from the lake district on Sunday evening, and I have been wanting to go back since! Do you have anywhere that you want to go back to?

I did get a few ideas for new squares whilst I was on holiday, so definitely look out for those in the coming weeks. Also, if you guys don’t already please do follow me on Instagram as I post more frequent updates there that don’t require a full blog post.

This weeks square was created by the lovely Susan Hinton and she was very generous to let us use in it our Granny Squares Galore CAL; please do go and check out her Etsy store to, I know she would appreciate it =)

As this is Susan’s pattern, I have decided to just show final images of my squares for this week, and also a crochet chart I made for this pattern, for those of you who find them easier to read ❤

So let’s get crocheting all!

My yarn delivery also arrived this week, so look forward to the next few granny squares being extra colourful!

Yarn heavennn!

Hi everyone =) this week has gone so fast! I’ve made a few new amigurumi patterns this week, and connected with a few other crocheters (more on that later =) )

As its been a busy week, I thought we would counteract this with a simple but lovely square =)

Happy crocheting,

Mothers Day Flower – GSG 6

Hi all! Happy Mothers day to everyone 😊 I hope you all have lovely days, whatever you are choosing to do. I thought we would make a nice flower for this weeks square as a tribute to mother’s everywhere =)

I wanted to make this square special and so I have chosen a 3D flower which we make first, and then we make the square around it (a bit like our St Patricks square!). We will end up with a lovely flower framed in a square.

Beautiful!

Let me know in the comments what you are up to today, and what you love about you parents. I love my parents for putting up with me and always supporting me through all my madness!

Annnyyway, here’s the pattern!

Happy crocheting!

GSG 5 – Flower square

Happy Sunday all! It’s gorgeous weather here so I’m trying to make this post brief so I can take Jasper out to enjoy it whilst it lasts!

I plan on releasing a Granny Square CAL page soon so we can all easily see which squares are released and when the next square is due, but for now, this is part 5 of our CAL – a lovely Flower in a square. This square utilities the puff stitch which we learnt in a previous lesson, and it is also similar to our first square.

I hope you guys like this pretty little square, and as always,

Happy crafting!

Shammy square!

Happy St Patrick’s day everyone! I love seeing everyone wearing hints of green, especially in this lovely almost spring weather we’ve been experiencing lately. I created a small pop quiz for my friends the other day, in which I put some St Patrick’s day trivia in; did you know that the first city to celebrate St Patrick’s day was Boston, and that Chicago dyes their river green in celebration! If you guys have any traditions that you want to share please feel free to write a comment = )

As today is our next CAL, I thought we should incorporate something with a St Patrick’s theme. I thought of doing a Guinness coloured square, but then I settled on four leaf clovers, as they are a symbol of luck, and they would look lovely in a nice square.

So, let’s get clover-ing!

GSG 3 – Circles and Squares

Hi Guys! I hope you have been having a lovely weekend =) I’ve been on courses for work all week, from resilience training to lateral thinking. Hopefully they’ll provide useful for both work and future crochet patterns alike!

This week I wanted to make a granny square with a circle in the middle, as it’s useful for when making crochet flowers into squares ready for a blanket. Hopefully you all will approve. I intend to release a How To on crocheting in a circle, which should provide useful for this square.

The pattern is fairly simple, but still produces a lovely square, so without any further ado…

Hi guys! I hope you have had a lovely week; we’ve been having some glorious weather down here in Sussex, and I was also lucky enough to attend my brother-in-laws wedding yesterday. Overall, a very good week!

And now, to top it all off, I get to show you all the next granny square in this CAL. This granny square will feature the puff stitch, one of my favourite textured stitches.

Happy crafting!
