Granny square Christmas

When I was younger I fell in love with the granny square blanket my Nan had made. It was in her tiny little Welsh cottage near the mountains and was one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen. So many colours and combinations of colours, it was just truly amazing.

I'm not sure if it's the happy childhood memories or my ever increasing passion for crocheting, but granny squares (and doilies) are something I could fill me life with. Even more delightful are the variations on granny squares.



Star burst blanket, which used to be my favourite, but I have recently had a go at African flowers.


They are quick and easy to make and so very pretty.


Thanks to the brilliant free pattern that I found here, I have managed to make a little crochet Christmas stocking made out of 16 1/2 motifs.


I am happy with the how the little Christmas stocking turned out and am now rather fond of African flowers, star burst and granny squares, well actually, all things crochet.
