Sarah - sorry you had problems reading my free pattern.
Thank you for sharing this amazing block. Mine are neon colored centers with the white being neon green...looking like a beautiful flower bed.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing those are very pretty.ReplyDelete
I love the clean look of this pattern, do you have a pic of your finished product? I know doing the flat braid is going to be a challenge for me as I intend to make a afghan. :)using your block.ReplyDelete
Thanks Michelle. I have a baby blankie made with these motifs posted here:Delete
I am using your block pattern to make an afghan, I know doing the flat braid will be a challenge, I love how simple and clean it looks :)ReplyDelete
Love it have made it a bit larger for a wash clothReplyDelete
How many skeins of yarn would you need for a Lap AfghanReplyDelete
The circles are made with scrap yarns and if I remember correctly, I used less than 16 oz. of the soft white.Delete
Hi Debi, started making these lovely squircles ... just love them. Have them mentioned on my blog! Blessings.ReplyDelete
These are so Pretty! I am new to Crocheting! Do you happen to have a Video showing how to make these? That would help me so much. Thanks for Sharing! :0)ReplyDelete
Thank you. :) I'm sorry, but I don't have a video for these squares.Delete
maybe im missing something, how did you do the last row to make the circle edges?ReplyDelete
Hi there. The link for the joining rounds is over on the right sidebar - it says 'joining grannies'. :)Delete
This is exactly the pattern I was looking for to start my new afghan! Thank you.ReplyDelete

Can I clarify please are these American Terms? I am in UK. Should I be actually doing Trebles where it states (dc) and then a double where it states (sc)?? Thanks. SarahReplyDelete
Hi Sarah. Yes - my patterns are in American terms. Sorry it took a little while to get back to you - I was out. :)Delete
I have done 4 of these now. Thank you so much. I hope to make enough to make a patchwork bag. I would love to upload a pic of mine to show you. So chuffed for a newbie. xxReplyDelete
You're welcome yummymummy. I'd love to see a picture of your squares. :)Delete
Do you have an email or way I could send you a pic. Or is there a way on here and I am just being dim. xxDelete
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org :)Delete
I have 36 squares done. I used 6 different colors. Should I do 6 rows by 5 rows or 6 by 6 for a baby afghan?ReplyDelete
Hi there. I think 5 squares by 6 squares would be nice. :)Delete
Oh thank you for replying so quickly! I was afraid 5 rows would be too narrow, but I think the flat braiding will make up for almost another square. Thank you for this pattern. I am making two afghans for my niece who is having twins! So I have another 30 squares to make now, but it didn't take me very long to make the first 36 so I am Ok with that! Thank again!Delete
You're very welcome. Congratulations to your niece and family on the twins!! :)Delete
I just found you on pinteret while searching for a granny pattern for afgan for my niece as a bday gift in December. And I love it.ReplyDelete
Thank you - I hope your niece likes it too. :)Delete
I'm having a problem with finishing the square part. I'm finding I have extra holes left over even when I space them out correctly. Any advice?ReplyDelete
Hi Sheila. I'm sorry you're having a problem - can you send me a picture of the square you're making so I can see how to help? My email is email@example.comDelete
Is there maybe a pattern instead of a written version? I'm beter with that ☺️ and love the granny... Thanks for letting me know.ReplyDelete
No I'm sorry - I only have the written pattern.Delete
Could you perhaps create one Sibylla? I haven't mastered patterns. Mind you I struggle with written instructions too. 😆Delete
Thank you soooooooooooooo much for sharing the pattern!! So many nice things on the internet but no patterns, if they don't want to share why bother wasting my time, so again thank you xoReplyDelete
Hi! This maybe stupid question but I have the circle part done but where is the part to do it out to make the square? Thank you?ReplyDelete
Hi Jeannie - Rnds 4, 5, and 6 will make it into a square. :)Delete
These are so pretty, love the joining. Feeling ambitious....thinking this would make a wonderful scrap bedspread :)ReplyDelete
I have been an avid lover of this pattern for many years and still not got round to finishing my patchwork bag, but I have just featured you Debi on my new website as I love your work.ReplyDelete
Thank you Sarah. :)Delete
How would I go about creating a half square for your squircle square? I would like to make a vest, but it calls for half squares (triangularly), and I don't know how to make one.ReplyDelete
I don't think this square can be a triangle because of the chain loops. I think you would have to make a plain triangle. :)Delete
Hi could you point me to joining instructions cant see anything .. maybe because im looking on my phone and doesnt show up. ThanksReplyDelete
Hi Helen. Here's the link for the joining:Delete
