More Squares… Scallops, Flag and FP/BP

Why did I wait until now to do these!! I love each one!!

Square 20 – Scallops

  • dusty purple, dusty green & cream
  • hook G
  • measures 8″

I was smiling the whole time making this square. Every round produced something incredible. I wanted to immediately stop and make a necklace or broach or flower.

Square 48 – Flag

  • lime (pea green)

Could also be used as a corner square for an afghan. I like it. I see potential for it.

      OMG!! The LADY herself!!!!

      I am obsessed with making these squares. I so want to “make” stuff with them but I am focused on getting all 101 done first.

      I could have used your help on Square 77 but I eventually figured it out. šŸ˜€

      I love that each square teaches me a new way to do things. A new trick up my sleeves. AND I am a new crocheter.

      Thanks so much for commenting on my squares. (I didn’t know you were reading these. I’ll be nicer going forward. LOL!!)

      Hope you get lots of sales of your book. A lot of people have posted or e-mailed me they bought or will buy it.

      Thanks again for putting together an excellent book. I’ll remember this project forever!!

    You are learning a lot just by doing these squares. You’ll be an expert in no time at all.

    And what an absolute thrill it must have been to see the comment from Jean Leinhauser!!! šŸ˜€

    But, I’ll bet she is thrilled to see you doing such a fabulous job of showcasing her designs!
