Granny Square [learning to crochet left hand]

My Lesson 3 -Part 2



I wanted cotton yarn for my project, and after getting lost in rows of vibrant colours and variety of textures at the yarn store I found these pretty yarn. While I am not a regular at the store, I thought that prices are quite high.  Then again, I have not been there for a long time.


This cotton yarn is called ROWAN ;belle organic aran and the needle I am using is Aero 3mm. I still don't have many needles[only 3 sizes] and after attempts with each, I chose to go with this one.







The purple/grey square is little larger when completed even though the yarn is exact same as the other two. I think I will encounter trouble when it is time to join. I need to learn what to do in a situation like that.

So far the squares are stacking up very nicely.... and I am enjoying making them :)

Thank you for always stopping by,

Until next time,

xxx,
Gaia

  1. your granny squares are coming along a treat, have you seen the site hooked on crochet? it gives new patterns every day, must admit I do not have the time to look at them all but have saved the details so I can browse later.

  2. These look great Gaia! I'm sorry I can't help you with the different sized squares issue, but I'm sure if you googled it, someone will have posted something. Good luck! (I find yarn extremely expensive too ... I'm sorry I got rid of so much of my mom's leftovers) Wendy
