Debi, you are so, so creative. I not only love the square but the name!ReplyDelete
Hi! I am new to your blog and I love it! This "squircle" is great! Will you be sharing a pattern?ReplyDelete
Thanks ladies. I'll be sharing the pattern in the morning. :)ReplyDelete
Ah, ah ... a 'squircle'. :-)ReplyDelete
Nice one, also the flower mat.
A rug or mat to make is not a bad idea at all!
What a truly lovely design. And I definitely love your squircle name too!!!ReplyDelete
What a great design. It really adds a nice touch. I love the squircle name you came up with.ReplyDelete
Debi, I must confess....I have recently went 'blog browsing' and I have to tell you that I am so fortunate to have found you blog some weeks ago. Your blog is like no other, you post your own projects, no magazine pictures, and help everybody with your knowledge and wisdom of the art of crochet....A BIG THANK YOU IS IS IN ORDER!!!!!! I wish you well in all you do, you are truly inspirational!!!! Have a great holiday =)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much ladies. :)ReplyDelete
Thank You for the pattern!!!ReplyDelete
I really love that thanks so much for sharing the pattern I may just have to make something with that :o)ReplyDelete
Debi! I finally got started on my extraordinary ordinary blanket! Mine is sc with an L hook and it's a bit different but I owe it all to you! I think this will be great to use up smaller yarn balls for my charitable efforts. Wised I could share a picture. I love this idea. BrendaReplyDelete
That is a really pretty motif Debi. I'm looking forward to giving it a try! :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks ladies - glad everyone likes it. :)ReplyDelete
Love your 'squircle' - very cute name also :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing the pattern :)
Thanks Gillian - and you're welcome. :)ReplyDelete
Do you mind if we sell products made from your designs, as long as we aren't selling the pattern?ReplyDelete
Ambitious Blonde - that would be fine. Could you give me a little more info on that?ReplyDelete
Can't wait to try this. Thanks....so pretty!ReplyDelete
Thanx so much for allowing your pattern to be printed!! It's been hard to find a 'pin' that will give you the pattern and in English ... bonus!ReplyDelete
My first attempt to make this and it kinda turned out to be half oval.... Practice practice for me, but great pattern and thank you so much! :)ReplyDelete
thank you so much for this lovely pattern and for your generosity!ReplyDelete
I just started doing granny squares and I am hopelessly addicted...I love this squircle (lol) and I plan to integrate it into a lovely blanket/afghan....Thank you for your ingenuity....ReplyDelete
What is the size of the size?ReplyDelete
Hi Lynn. The size of the squircle is 4 1/2".Delete
Or what ever size you want just by adding more rounds, keep adding rounds and make 2 and see the sides and the top edges and you have a topDelete
Debi, I love your squares! Can't wait to try all of them. I think you should publish your squares in a book so we could have all of them at once.ReplyDelete
Thank you Shirley. :)Delete
OMG love this SOOOOOO much!!!!ReplyDelete
love love love this....ReplyDelete
Thanks! This is an attractive alteration on the traditional granny square and very easy to do.ReplyDelete
