Granny's Gone Dotty Square



Hi Everyone

Another pattern to share, but first I would like to shout out a very big thank you to all who took the time to drop me a line and show their support on my last post.  I get quite a lot of pageviews, but only a special few go out of their way to comment, pretty much on each of my posts, and I really do appreciate hearing from you.



I hope you like this latest pattern.  It actually came about as I was making another square and this was it part way made; I stopped for a coffee, looked at it and thought hey, that's really nice in it's own right.  (By the way, I've recently given up caffeine...   if you've heard it's bad then whoever told you underexaggerated!  1st day was hellish, followed by 13 days with a thick head...  However, out the other side and I'm glad I made the effort.  I definitely feel much better.  Another addiction gone...  Just sugar to conquer!)  So here it is...


If you would like to purchase, the listing on Etsy is https://www.etsy.com/listing/109617763/grannys-gone-dotty-square-crochet



Happy Crocheting everyone!

  8. I love your pattern and your colour combination is beautiful. I especially like how the white makes the circle in the middle "pop out".

  9. When I first returned to crocheting after many years, I wasn't very interested in granny squares. I have always crocheted single items, ie baby blankets, afghans, anything that was one piece and I didn't have to put together. However, your beautiful patterns have made an impression on my and granny squares are starting to move up on my list. I finally realize how portable they are and how easy to work with. Thank you so much for the free pattern. I have emailed you with my address.

    Once I get through the newest expected grandbaby's blanket and the last grandbaby's birth sampler, I think I'm going to start something with this pattern. I'll let you know when I do.

    Thanks again.

    Hugs,
    Sharon

  16. Karen,

ARE YOU CRAZY???? Next you are going to say you are giving up chocolate!!!!!! Good luck on your quest!! (however crazy you may be! LOL) Darlene

  17. love and prayers continue dear Karen- good job on the caffeine!
    you are so sweet to offer this pattern to me- I already have some ideas swirling through my head of how I can make this out of crochet thread and turn it into something..... I had quite a few of your others marked in my book as 'one day' projects, but of course never managed to print them out! Well, they are still in my book, but that 'one day' looks like it may be some time off now, as I am surprisingly busy with orders for my crocheted treetop angels!

  18. I found your lovely blog via Pinterest. You are one of my favorite crochet designers. I, too, love color just like you! Your patterns are very unique and I wouldn't be surprised if I purchase some one of these days. May I ask how you started designing? Have you been crocheting long? I'm enjoying visiting your previous postings. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful projects with us.

  21. Thank you thank you thank you! I'm such a fan of your work and look forward to including your square in my on-going "Granny Square Project".
    Just an aside - here in New England the weather is starting to turn cool and the other day I pulled on my chevron lace wrist warmers and though of you!! These are my favorite and I have plans for another pair soon.
