  3. I'm looking for a pattern for "Stitchgwen crochet fox pixel blanket" I am wanting to make it for my daughter being she loves foxes. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  4. Hey everyone, I have recently found a charity that I was making Squares for and was wondering if anyone would like to help. You can send me your squares and I will add them in with mine and deliver them all. The Orginization is called Clicking for a cause and is based in Durham, NC. It is a volunteer ministy where members take all of the finished squares and assemble blankets. Here is what they ask for: Our primary gifts to others are BLOCK AFGHANS, and we are always looking for more BLOCKS. You need not assemble an afghan yourself; our members will do this. Simply create blocks of washable “worsted weight” yarn in any bright colors. Use knitting or crocheting to fashion the blocks, whatever you wish. Please leave a “tail” of yarn about 18 inches long at the beginning and end of your blocks. We will use this to sew the afghan together. Most Important: the finished block size must be 7 inches by 9 inches for ease of assembly. Measure carefully! Let me know if you are interested and I will let you know where you can send them! Thank you in advance for your help.
  5. What's the best method and easiest method for a beginner crocheter to connect granny squares together with a sewing needle or crochet hook?
  6. I recently finished this afghan for a friend of mine from high school. Her son is going there in August. I may have another afghan for Bowling Green University. Im happy to report he loved the afghan. The afghan is made up of 100-4" black squares and the white logo is made up of 300-1" granny squares.

  8. Okay, so, I have a project in mind but I'm unsure how to complete a bit of it. I'm a bit of a novice. I want to make a heart, using granny squares, that is about 2 squares high by 2 squares wide. I understand how to make the bottom half with 2 squares of a two colored diagonal, black and red. The top half is where I'm stuck. How would I make the curved top half using 2 colors? Please help <3 Thank you <3
  9. Hello my name is Tonya Craig From CraigLoves2Crochet I am hoping I can find a few lovely people with a small amount of time to make a huge difference to a family in USA. This story has really taken my heart and had an idea to make a recovery blanket using Granny Squares made with Love for Tracee (see link) I have also popped over to ask if you would share this very special link with as many fans as you can. We are hoping that people could spend 30 minutes to make a granny square to make a recovery blanket. I am hoping we can bring a little love to a family almost destroyed by domestic violence See Below: If you can share as many of your granny squares patterns, tutorials also to assist with the cause too. Please post on my fb page under the link so others can share. Thank you so very much in advance https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151884099924523&set=a.10150173710834523.316552.810224522&type=1&theater
  10. Hi everybody! Does anybody like to make granny squares? I like to. There are my favorite thing to crochet. I have made many afghans using this pattern. Mama taught me the granny square back in 60s when she taught me to crochet. After I learned it, I developed what I call a formula for crocheting an afghan. First, I decided on the main color that I'm going to use. Then I decide on colors to go with the first color. For example, say I decide to crochet an granny square afghan using blue as one of the colors. The other two (I always use three colors and a border color) colors are medium blue and light blue. The border would be either cream or white so the formula is three colors and one color for the border. This works out to three skeins for each color and three for the border. Since I always buy an extra skein of each color, I would have 4 skeins of each color and 4 for the border. I used to choose black for the border, but black is too hard to see for me now and so I now choose a light to medium color for the border. Do any of you like to make granny squares? Do you make them into afghans? Are they for you or do you give them as gifts? Do you use the basic granny square or do you use a variation of the granny square? What else have you made using granny squares? I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks for reading this. Jeannie

All of the information is listed in her blog post below (titled "Oklahoma"), and I'd be happy to ask her any additional questions you may have! craftedheartsalliance.blogspot.com

  16. I raided my stash to make this afghan of granny squares. I used different size squares and stuck pretty much to grays, maroons/burgundies and blacks. I used 5 different shades of gray, 3 of the maroons and 2 or 3 different blacks! I had so much fun with this one and that's strange because I usually loathe sewing squares together but I think crocheting them together was much more fun and gives it a little something else. Thanks for looking.
