A co-worker of mine is collecting granny squares to put into afghans to donate to the people in Moore, OK. She is very appreciative of any help anyone can provide!

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!

Hello the squares does she want them 4 rows with a white border or 4 rows total?  I have family that live in Oklahoma so I would love to help.

I am actually a little unclear with that, as well, so I will shoot her an email first thing in the morning and let you know!

I spoke to Lindsay today, and she said that the 4th round should be in white.

I just read her blog and it said fourth round in white and the finished square should be 4 x 4, mine are coming out 5 x 5.  Which is better 4 rounds or 4 x 4?  Puting together granny squares myself I know how important  everyone following the rules is!   Thanks!  Charlene

I told her that my squares are coming out big, as well. I've been measuring each one and mine are coming out around 5.5x5.5. I can ask and see which she would prefer.

 

ETA: I just talked to Lindsay on Facebook, and she said she'd rather have 4x4. I have too many squares done already to try to get mine down to 4x4, so I'm just going to make enough to where she can turn my squares into one afghan.

Thanks so much for the fast reply!  I kind of thought that she'd want 4 x 4, glad you also had the same problem I did with them coming out bigger, not just me.  Charlene

you can make a 4" X 4" granny square with a size "H or 8" crochet hook  with 4 ply yarn.

This drive is still pushing forward! Lindsay made a post on the CHA facebook page stating that she's received nearly 200 squares so far! I have 34 done and am aiming to do 50.

Hi Mandy,

I think i have pinpointed the confusion in said 4 by 4 squares. I think the web page says row four should be white. When i did a couple, it's row three to me, as I don't count the ch ring, join as row one, I count the yo yo as row one, then another row of color, then the white. Perfect 4 by 4, with an h hook.....I think she may have been counting the ch 3 or (4)and join to make a ring,as a first row, and , then the fourth row, would be white. That's my thought anyway, with the fourth row white, counting the ring, it's 5 by 5. So there we have it, no more confusion! lol

 

FOrgive the lousy pic, batteries must be low....

That would explain it! I never count the ring, so I just assumed 4 rounds total. Glad everything is ironed out now!
