Pattern: Crochet Octagonal Granny Square

Friday, November 13, 2009

I saw a garland of cute granny squares somewhere on the Internet, and whipped up this pattern to put it together. There's basically three stages: the octagon motif, the square frame, and the thicker frame. You can stop at any of these stages, as needed, but for the garland I recommend all three. (Maybe for an afghan you wouldn't need the thicker frame)

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your
site? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you
could space it out better?
