***Debi Y's pattern***
This square can be made into a large square for a blankie - just continue to repeat Rnds 7, 5 and 6 of the pattern. This is one I'm working on now. :)
I've made a video for a rectangle 'simply pretty'.
A realy beautiful square! Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
I'll pin it on my Pinterest board.
Wow! a very pretty square. I have been hooked on different squares for a while now and I must tell you....I am in love with this one. Thank you so much for the pattern. I am going to use this in my latest blanket I am working on.!ReplyDelete

Debi - I loved this square when you first shared a picture, but I couldn't figure out what I could do with it if you shared your pattern (I'm not huge into multi-square blankets just yet) - this one large square is PERFECT! thanks for the pattern, and great idea. Definitely adding to my list of "to-do" in the future projects!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern-and for sharing so many lovely square patterns. You make them so easy to follow and they really are fantastic :-)ReplyDelete
Debi, This is gorgeous as always!! Definitely have to add this to my to do list, which is already filled with blankets inspired by your posts. I love them all!!ReplyDelete
This is awesome Debi! Thank you for sharing it. I am definitely going to make one. I just started on a never ending granny but Mikey from the Crochet Crowd. It's the 7 strand. Oddly my crochet 'impatience' I think is changing. I don't know, we'll see what happens. But I'm loving the colors I picked (except I changed one, and unfortunately it was the first one I started with and that is the only round with that color but I have an idea to cover it up).ReplyDelete
Debi, I was introduced to your site and this pattern yesterday; downloaded and tried the pattern last night. FINALLY figured out the problems with it today. You need to check your written instructions for Rnds 3 and 4 (rnd 5 also but it is just a case of saying SC when you mean DC). Had I not had the picture and also been an experienced crocheter, I would probably have never figured out what you did on those two rounds. Everything else so far looks fine; I am loving the way the square is turning out; will probably do a baby blanket out of this one. I do thank you for sharing this pattern; it may easily become a favorite for me. MarieReplyDelete
YAAY! Thanks for this. Have a wonderful weekend (what's left of it). :)ReplyDelete
I think this is a most beautiful square. I am a relative newbie when it comes to reading patterns. I'm having trouble with the instructions. My square is puckering or something. Has anyone done step-by-step tutorial with pictures? Thanks. BgReplyDelete
Hi Brenda. If I remember correctly, this square will pucker a tiny bit after the ch 3 rounds, but will straighten out when you crochet the granny stitch round. (I didn't do a step-by-step with pictures.) :)Delete
Hi Debi, I also had problems with the same rounds Marie is talking about so I had to come back to this site and now I think I can figure it out. I am using size 3 Aunt Lydia's thread and a small steel hook and making the prettiest coasters. I will be giving them for a bridal shower. Thank you for sharing. RobertaReplyDelete
I would like a draw of the pattern. it would be easier. I can not understand the explanation. thanksReplyDelete
I'm sorry, but I don't know how to do that.Delete
BEAUTIFUL & EASY AND DIFFERENT THANKSReplyDelete
This is the prettiest and most versatile square I have ever seen. You can make a blanket with less gaps than a traditional granny. ThanksReplyDelete
Hello Debi, my mum and I both love this pattern. Unfortunately our native language isn't English. So I tried to puzzle a little bit and made a drawing of your pattern. You can find it on pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/519110294530283901/ReplyDelete
I've made a reference to this blog post. Please let me know if you agree or if I should remove the drawing. Regards Daisy
Hi Daisy. You have my permission to use the drawing of my square. It's very nice by the way. I'm sure a lot of crocheters will appreciate the drawing instead of having to follow a written pattern. :)Delete
Hi Debi, I love this pattern. I've used it a number of times to make different projects and it always turns out well. I am about to teach a beginners crochet class for the first time and I was hoping you would give me permission to use it as a project option. There is a charge for the class but my income (if any) from it will be small. I would make sure it is clear that the pattern is your work, and encourage the students to come and look at your blog. I think it would make a great confidence builder for students as it is so lovely, yet it is simple to learn.ReplyDelete
Hi Twigbymeg. Of course you have my permission - thank you for asking. I'm happy that you enjoy this pattern so much that you would like to share it with others. I hope you have a great class. :)Delete
This square is REALLY pretty. I love the blanket you made. I will definitely give it a go! Thank you so much for writing out the pattern.ReplyDelete
This is a very pretty crochet square pattern. Would like to try make a blanket out of this someday soon.ReplyDelete
I love this pattern. Your video tutorial is very good. Thanks for sharing this really pretty pattern.
Thank you Geeta - I'm glad you like it. :)Delete
Beautiful. Will try this. Thanks for postingReplyDelete
