Pattern: Spring Granny Square

Please be patient.. This is my very first attempt at writing down a pattern.  I often take inspiration from others work. I will like how they started a square and how someone else finished theirs. So I’ll just mesh them together.

I wrote this more or less as I say it in my head. (sorry) So there is few short forms.  I’ve added photos to the bits I’m not sure that I explained well. Please .. all feedback will be most welcome.

Spring Green

It’s been a long winter. I’ve kept busy with lots of projects, mostly baby blankets!

The blanket that I started today makes me happy. I always love when I get to make a blanket from colours and yarn that I like.

Green Hellebore

The circle / granny ‘square’ I choose reminds me of a flower.

I love that shades of green and the Bernat Cotton yarn .

Here’s the first square =)  spring green square one
