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.

“Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”

    Hi Trudy 🙂 It should read repeat 2 times! Will fix it immediately 🙂 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 🙂

  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 🙂

    Thank you Carol! If you need any help, please just ask 🙂

  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!
