:clap THANK YOU!! :hook

I like this square! I'm not Irish (hubby is part Irish) but I want to make an afghan this year with a square for each month (I might make 2 and let the church raffle one off as they are doing different things to put money towards the building fund--it is a small inter-denomination country church, only about 30-40 people attened each week but now more people are getting involved). This is going to make a great March holiday square! I was thinking about making 12 (12") squares. I am going to add a few rows to make it 12". I am starting to look through patterns now so that I can work on it after the holidays.

Thank you so much! Now I have my March square picked out!

I'm Irish and married an Irishman last year. Our wedding cake had Irish flag colors (orange, green and white) with shamrocks around the edges.

I absolutely love this square! I am making a calendar afghan and it is perfect for my March square! BUT, I'm having trouble. After the ch7, the pattern says to 'work 4sc evenly up side of petal, sc across top of pettal 2sc in ch-2 sp, etc. Where was the ch-2 space? I somehow missed it in the instructions. Can you help?

Thanks for this awesome square!:cheer

Thanks for the compliments! :hug I'm still working on my afghan of this square. So far it looks pretty good, except I made my squares bigger. I added another Rowof white then green then white again for mine. Only because DH wants it big and I figured making each square a little bigger would be easier than making umpteen more squares. I'll definetly post a pic when its done.

 

And please if anyone finds any more errors, let me know. Peggy, it looks like I should have sent this one to you before posting it! ;)
