  1. Hi everyone, I'm pleased to find fellow crochet enthusiasts. I am a granny living in South Africa but my babies all live in UK and Europe. I love to crochet and sometimes knit.
  2. reposting this as i inadvertanlty deleted it a while back, and have gotten some inquiries about it, so went looking for a copy, luckily had one stored on my computer, so here goes, one more time, and thanks to all those asking about it!! It is now published too in the Crochet Pattern Calendar too, isn't that cool!! here goes.... Katie’s Flower pattern square... Sunflower/Daisy flower pattern.   With brown, Chain 4, join with sl st to form a ring. Ch 3, and do 15 more dc in ring. (the chain three counts as the first double crochet, here and throughout.) Join to the top of the turning chain with a sl st. End off brown. (16 dc) Row 2. Join Yellow in any stitch, and Ch. 4, (counts as 1 dc, ch 1) *1 dc, ch 1 in each dc around, (16 dc and 16 ch 1 spaces.) join with sl st to top of turning ch . Sl st over one to first ch 1 space. Round 3, Ch 3, and 1 dc in the same space. Ch 1. In next ch 1 space *2 dc , ch 1* and Repeat from * around for a total of 16 dc groups and 16 ch 1 spaces. Join in top of turning chain, end off yellow. Row 4. Attach Green yarn in any chain one space, this will be the starting of your first corner. Ch. 3, 2 dc in same stitch. *Skip next 2 dc group. *2 sc, in next ch 1 space, sk 2 dc * repeat from * Two more times and you will be at the next corner. Corner is made with 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc. Continue down next side, same as above, doing *2 sc, sk next 2 dc * three times along the side until reaching next corner, where you will work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in corner. Continue down each side, and when you reach the last corner, 3 dc, join to top of turning ch, end off green. Row 5. Add blue to any corner, ch 2, 1 hdc in same stitch as ch 2 . 1 hdc in each stitch along side, (Should be 12 stitches, it‘s easy to miss that first one though, as the corner hides it, but squish up the stitches of the corner, and find that first st! ) When you reach the next corner, then 2 hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc in corner. Continue down next side, with all hdc, (12) reaching corner, 2 hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc in that corner, Repeat sides to last corner, then 2 hdc, ch 1, join to top of turning chain, end off . Then comes the fun part, putting them all together!   For the daisy, change the center ring to yellow( or black) Do the next two rows in white, and everything else stays the same. Any questions, and I’m sure there will be many, as this is the first time I have written out a pattern of mine for someone else to decipher through, I will try to help, just pm or email me. I claim this pattern as a me pattern, ha ha, and if someone somewhere has thought of it already, which is the case in most all granny’s, I assure you, I have never seen one quite like this, nor did I follow or copy any pattern when I made it up. Thanks, Good Luck!
  3. Hi everybody!! I've just recently learnt how to stitch the basic granny stitch and I'm noticing, as you can see in the pictures, that they slant to the right quite a bit. I'm using acrylic perle with a size 3 hook, was thinking on using a half size smaller one (2.50 size one) but not sure if the problem is really in the hook or what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas that could help with this anyone?
  4. I am looking to design a bag that is attractive, but not as fussy as many of my other designs. This is my first attempt, and I think it shows promise. I have to add braiding to my skill set, and getting up to speed on that took some doing. Here is the blog post with more photos.
  5. I am trying to find a free pattern or the square size needed to make a poncho for a 5 to 7 year old girl [4 feet tall]. I want to make one to go with a doll size poncho. There is no collar but it does have a drawstring around the neck. Below is the link to the doll size poncho I will be making. Any help would be appreciated. A pm would be great. Thank you, http://www.abc-knitting-patterns.com/1381.html Dragonlady
  6. Here is a matching potholder and dishcloth I crocheted using a granny stitch. Here is the granny stitch potholder pattern and the granny dishcloth pattern I used. These are both going into a basket I am putting together for this year's Relay for Life fundraiser.
  7. Just wanted to share a basic granny stitch potholder pattern that I crocheted. This is for a Mother's Day gift for my Mom and I wrote up the pattern if anyone wants to make one. The front panel is in granny stitch and the back panel is done in single crochet stitching to provide a thick protective backing for the potholder.
  8. Here is a crocheted dishcloth pattern that uses a granny stitch but with a little different center look to start the cloth. Here is the link to the free country granny dishcloth pattern at my blog. Here are a few photos of some of the cloths I crocheted using up different scraps of cotton yarn I had.
  9. Modern Granny Scarf A granny rectangle and color-changing yarn with long color changes are all it takes to create this stunner. Mindless rounds of granny fabric make this the perfect take-along project, even for beginners. If you don’t want to use the yarn pictured, pick your favorite multi-colored yarn, or use those small balls in your stash. It’s easy to customize! Buy now
  10. Here is my bag for summer, and here is a link a blog post that includes more photos:

  12. I am looking for a granny square crochet egg pattern like this one. Does anyone know where to look? Thank you!
  13. This is my new pattern of a pillow cover published on Ravelry yesterday. This crocheted Dahlia decoration for pillow cover consists of 9 square motifs made in Overlay crochet technique. If you use other colour palette for this pattern, your pillow cover will look completely different, and unique. Many Popcorn stitches used in this pattern give the whole design nice volume and structure. This square motif can be also used for blankets, bags or just as an appliqué for clothes, curtains and so on. The motif is very thick as it has two layers due to large amount of overlay stitches. So if you decide to crochet a double sided pillow cover – you will not even have to buy or sew a fabric pillow case.
  14. This is a pattern of pillow cover which I called “Lucky Quatrefoil”. Pillow cover consists of square motifs crocheted in the Overlay Crochet technique. They remind me of quatrefoils which are famous for bringing good luck to people. But at the same time they look like small butterflies as well. The square motif can not only become a part of pillow decoration, but you can also crochet a blanket or a bag with it or just use it as an appliqué for clothes. This easy to follow pattern of a square motif (10 pages) is written for one size. It contains step by step full written instructions in English using standard crochet abbreviations and US terms (stitch guide is given in the pattern). It also contains lots of pictures explaining all the tricky and difficult places and how the motifs are joined. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lucky-quatrefoil-pillowcase

  18. Hi, I'm making a friend of mine a baby blanket consisting of 4 granny squares joined together, I'm trying to find a way to put letters in the blanket without stitching them on top of the blanket. her son likes to pull and will pull the letters off. Any help would be appreciated.
  19.   A bright, soft, maxi-tote-bag featuring traditional granny squares in a very stylish design. Ideal for the beach, for traveling and for shopping. Fast to make using robust Egyptian cotton yarn and reinforced rigid borders. Dedicated to Varenna, the wonderful town on Lake Como. Pattern available here @Craftsy: http://www.craftsy.com/user/1570660/pattern-store?_ct=fhevybu-ikrdql-fqjjuhdijehu @Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/NTmagliaCrochet @Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/designers/nt-maglia
  20. I just finished this baby blanket tonight. Pattern information is available on my blog if anyone is interested. I did use 1 fewer colors than the pattern called for. The color I omitted was the one that is only used on the edging.
  21. My 12 year old DD has been into making these lately. They take her about 2 and 1/2 hours. What do you think? She does some craft fairs, and she is making them to sell. Pricing suggestions?? She learned how from a youtube video from yolandasotolopez.
  22. What defines a granny square? what I learned is 3 dc in a ch1sp then ch 1, and repeat. but seeing all the wonderful creations u all make I figure I am missing something lol. so what is a granny square?
  23. I finally finished the Granny Pillows which are part of a set with the Granny Afghan! The details are on my Ravelry project page: http://ravel.me/PBELKNAP/mmgpcn2
  24. My first published design, and it's a free download at Red Heart. Based on the piece shown, the pattern uses With Love instead of Super Saver and is smaller than the original.
