136::365 georges granny square

136::365

Pattern: "Georges Granny" by Jessica Gil.

This was a super easy pattern that I made even easier by making 3 dc "granny" rounds after the sparkly blue round. So that it would measure 12", I added two rounds of hdc to finish it off. I can see a zombie eye in this one, too...

Three weeks down for A Square A Day In May! Thanks so much to Melissa for hosting this fun crochet along!!!

Now that I have a pile of these big squares, I'm trying to figure out what color I want to use to join them. I really, really love the blue in Colour-Heaven's cushion cover in the first photo! I don't know if it would have such a bold impact with large squares as it does with her little ones. I think I want to test it out! :)

  3. Do you know how to do the connecting used in the bottom center scrap blanket? I'm dying over it!! I think I can see how it's done from the photo, but I'm not sure.

  4. Dana, I think it is just spaced chain stitches that are then slip stitched in the middle to chain stitches around another block. Is that what you see? It is awesome looking!
