  1. Thank you for the free granny square motif.

  2. Hi Sarah, Thank you so much! I’m still practicing, and have gotten a lot better with some elements, but I have a long way to go. If I could just crochet granny squares, I’d be very happy. Your free pattern inspires me.

    the single crochet, 1/2 double crochet, and double crochet. I’m just about ready for granny squares, more practice, more practice, more practice.

    Thank you,

  11. Hello, do you know about how many yards of yarn this takes to make and how large the square turns out to be?
    Thank you.
