I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

โ€œCrochet is an art and crocheters itโ€™s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafterโ€

Happy Crocheting Joanita Theron

    Hi Trudy ๐Ÿ™‚ It should read repeat 2 times! Will fix it immediately ๐Ÿ™‚ It your square is smaller just add a single crochet round – repeat round 3, then do round 4! From everyone that has done this CAL, I really appreciate that you inform me of my errors! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. 1st round doesn't work out…too many sts and doesn't look like picture…should it read : 3ch, 2dc,2ch, 3dc, (2ch, 3dc) x 2, 2ch, join with sl st to top of beginning 3ch? Thanks …keep undoing…also this square seems to be smaller than circle square in week 2…coming along slowly ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you Carol! If you need any help, please just ask ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This is so adorable, Joanita! I have yet to master granny squares, even though they are supposed to be easy according to all the expert crocheters. I'm going to give this a try, because your tutorial is very good!

  5. Wow, this is amazing! I love to sew but I am someone who struggles with knitting a scarf so this looks like the impossible has been done to me! Found you on Snickerdoodle Sunday. Thanks for sharing!
