Project 101: Picking Up Where I Left Off

Can you believe it’s been 6 months? Time flies when having fun.

OK, time to get back to working on this project. Called Project 101 since there are 101 crochet squares in my book. The name of the book is 101 Crochet Squares by Jean Leinhauser.

Here’s Square 1. A giant pansy in the center of the square.

I didn’t think I would like the pansy. It looked odd. But I just wanted to get a square done and crossed off my list. I love it!! It came out so pretty.

Of course, I did a bit of changing. Altered the pattern. The center (gold color) was so deep you couldn’t see it. So I made a separate circle of single crochet, sewed it on top and added a picot stitch around it. I used light blue yarn for the flower, trimmed in navy. The square is white, trimmed in navy. Square measures 8 3/4″ by 8 3/4″.

Now I have to decide which square to make next.

    Where can the pattern be found for the Giant Pansy. A little confusing.
