Looks great Debi. The yellow and white looks sunny and cheerful together. Enjoy your weekend. :-)ReplyDelete
Very nice square! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
The square is wonderful. Do you agree, I translate the pattern in Dutch and show it on my blog, making a link to your blog? The pattern is not difficult but it has a great effect! Thank you in advance for reply!ReplyDelete
Thank you Anna. Yes - you have my permission to translate this pattern and post it on your blog with a link to here. Thank you for asking. :)Delete
Thank you very much for your reply and permission to translate the pattern in Dutch from a square in a square. I do like this pattern and I think all Dutch crocheting ladies. I will make a link to your blog! The open shell pattern also is very nice.
Lovely greetings from Anna (Holland).
Thanks ladies. :)ReplyDelete
Gosh, I love it. How do you get all these lovely ideas? :DReplyDelete
Thanks Madeleine. Sometimes they just pop into my head and sometimes I have to do a little thinking. :)Delete
Again a good pattern of a pretty square! Thank you for sharing this with us:)
Saved this pattern to do in future. Lovely!ReplyDelete
The printable version of your pattern is really well done. Thanks for making it so easy to borrow your pattern. MargaretReplyDelete
You're welcome Margaret. :)Delete
I love this pattern. I pinned it a few weeks ago and now I am using it to make my husband a Tetris blanket. I gave you the credit on my blog. http://mymethodtothismadness.com/ReplyDelete
Thanks Mattea. I went and looked at your blanket - it's looking very nice. :)Delete
Thanks ladies. :)ReplyDelete
Debi, Thanks to Pinterest I discovered this lovely design. I was working on something vaguely similar for a shamrock granny on my new craft blog (just what we need - another craft blog). I like your design so much I used it instead and would like permission to post it on my blog with a direct link to this post. I will not post the directions on my blog, as it's silly (and bad art) to re-write perfectly good pattern directions. Besides, I want people to be sure to see your blog. The goal of my blog is to help my friends learn new craft skills and part of that is to provide connections to quality sites like yours. Sincerely, Niki - thelittlecrafthouse.blogspot.comReplyDelete
Thank you so much for your kind words Niki. Of course, you have my permission to post about the square on your blog - I'm glad that you like it so much. (I'm going to pop over to your blog for a visit.) :)Delete
I can't seem to find your blog Niki - I did a google search and nothing comes up.Delete
Ahhhhh. I'm sorry. I didn't give you my blog's correct address. It is thelittlehandcrafthouse.blogspot.com. (I left out the word "hand"). I am just starting this one, so there isn't much on it yet. I did become a follower of your blog today. Have a lovely weekend.ReplyDelete
What a pretty square! Thank you very much! :)ReplyDelete
Crochet...Gotta Love It! Blog
Thank you for sharing the pattern. My sister in laws church make squares for afghans to give to needy families and I offered to make some because I love to crochet and try new things and these squares will make a nice Afghan. Thank you again and God blessReplyDelete
Thank you Lee Ann and Kimberly. :)ReplyDelete
Hi, i`m a member of a crochet group in Holland and with a few lady`s we crochet every week a different granny for a year.May i translate this pattern and join it with the other lady`s? It is so lovely!!!ReplyDelete
Greetings from Holland
Hi Maike. Yes, you may translate this pattern and share it with your group. I'm glad you like it. :)Delete
Gorgeous work! Thank you for the pattern! ♥ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. I love it. Going to give it a trial run a little later today!ReplyDelete
Do you have any special instructions for joining these lovely blocks together. Might use this for the new grandbaby who is on the way.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.
Hi LeArta. This is my favorite way to join squares:Delete
you have to watch all 4 videos. :)
Love this! :-)ReplyDelete
okay .. so I see the square.. where is the rest of the pattern?ReplyDelete
The yellow square is the square within the white square - hence the name 'square in a square'.Delete
I love this square - I like a lot of your stuff. This might just be the square I need for a new lapghan. So pretty.ReplyDelete
i wonder if you could send me the instructions on celtic lace joining?ReplyDelete
Hi Patrice. I had no idea what celtic lace joining was, so I googled it. Here is a link to the instructions:Delete
Thanks ladies. :)ReplyDelete
What perfect timing that I came across your blog and this particular pattern today - I am in need of a new pattern and just found the prettiest colors ON SALE that I wanted to use in a baby blanket - thank you, thank you, thank you! :)ReplyDelete
Oh how pretty! I love it...thank you for sharing your talent. :)ReplyDelete
In MY DAY, I have made many blankets & BABY blankets using this GRANNY SQUARE pattern.ReplyDelete
Unless 'your day' was in 2012, I seriously doubt that. Thank you.Delete
Actually I used this pattern in the early 90's. These patterns are always going around. But a beautiful blanket.Delete
Hi Patricia. I would very much like to see a picture of the square that you used.Delete
Back in the early 90's I made baby blankets like this.... My grandmother patterns are never knew just refurbished. Nice blanket!!ReplyDelete
Hello. I would very much like to see a close-up picture of the square that you crocheted back in the 90's.Delete
Thank you for sharing your pattern, what a great square to do.ReplyDelete
Thank you for a lovely square. I am using it as part of a sampler blanket for a new Great Granddaughter. I've adapted it to be an 8" square in keeping with what I am using. Keep them coming.ReplyDelete
This is a lovely pattern. I nade it in one colour and it's turned out really nice. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Thank you a beautiful square that I intend to use in white Aran for a bedcover.ReplyDelete
