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.

    Hi Raquel 🙂

    That is a typo – I will fix it!
    The repeat should be – [2 Dc; ch 2; 2 Dc]

  2. Thabk you so much this is a beautiful pattern (dragonfly granny)
    I have a question? Should in r6 after the TR, DC in nxt 6. Should the *be 2dc, ch2, f2f in ch2 crnr so

    Or is it supposed to be as written the *1dc,ch2,2dc? And repeat that

    In picture the count seems like ot lines up as the 2dc,ch2,2dc in corner sp

    Thanks
