** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

  3. Great square! Slow day at work so I just finished one. I used an "I" hook instead to get it down to 6in for Sibol. I think I messed it up though..row 6.."*(ch 2, 2 dc in next space, dc in next dc) 3 times"..after the first series I had to leave out the ch 2 to get mine to look like yours..not sure what I was doing..but it turned out great! Thanks :)

  6. That's a great square! It's sort of 3D looking when you stare at it for a long time (or is that just me lol?) :) Lovely shade of blue too!
