Thank you so much for the beautiful pics and patterns. I just finished the Summer Garden Granny afghan for my daughter...I am so inspired by your designs!!


I just started a blanket and was going to ask the same question as Joanne re:round 3. Shouldn't it be chain 5 to equal 2 chain spaces? I'd love to know before I get too far along in my project :)

Joanne Pavone

Pretty granny square pattern. I may be wrong but in row 3 shouldn't it be chain 5 to equal one tr and chain 2 space as the other 3 corners? I actually joined the yarn, ch 3, 3 tr, ch 2, 3 tr, all in same space as joined ch 1, 3 tr in next space, ch 1.


Thank you for this idiot-proof tutorial. I see it is 3 years old now and still going strong. It rocks!

Thanks so much for this tutorial.
I have known a few basic crochet stitches but have found patterns incomprehensible in the past.
Attracted by your use of colour, my daughter and I attempted these while I was recovering from surgery.
Success! Your instructions are so clear.
I then hunted for other granny square patterns but have yet to find one that I understand. So, for now I will keep making these lovely squares in new colour combos.
Thanks so much. Kim & Lilikoi


Tr :: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (two loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through remaining two loops. (NB this is equivalent to US dc stitch)

I'm new to this crocheting world. I still am trying to understand how to read crochet's language. What is Tr? I don't understand how to do tr? Please help me understand. Thanks! Amy

Ok just done 1 and love these. Only my 2nd week of crocheting and your site has been with me all the way :) x


I just finished making a summer garden afghan for my daughter! I used all sorts of colors and really soft yarn! I love your tutorials, you make it so easy to create some of the beautiful things you have on your site. I check back often just to see what you've been working on!


Wow, I'm very happy that I find Your blog. I like it very much. I'm from Poland. I have a blog too, but the theme of it is a food/kitchen.
I'm planning to make a new blog about crochet, wool etc. etc. because it's my hobby also:)
I love Your colorfull pages, your pictures:)They are optimistic:)
Sorry for my English - I hope You understand me;)
Keep up Your work - because it's fantastic.
Greetings from Poland,

Thank you! Grazie! It's very nice !


It's now 3 years later, and I found your pattern on Pinterest. It is so easy to follow that as a crochet-baby I can understand it pretty easily. I have about 50 granny squares nou, 25 of which in your style. I love doing this. And you are right. I do them in waiting rooms, on the train to work and while waiting for the bus.

Greetings from Holland!


Thank you for all these great ideas! I love the way you combine colours, makes everything look bright and lovely! I'll defenetly follow your blog!

Lucy, I keep returning to your site. Your colors in your Granny Squares inspire me and give me a happy feeling. Thanks a bunch.


I am a little late joining this party, but just finished a baby afghan for a friends baby shower! I am new to the whole bloggy thing...I posted a pic on my blog, with a link back here, and included the tracking link as well...I want to make sure people know where I got the pattern :)


Thank you for this very easy to follow tutorial! And I love the summery colours you have used.

How many different colours do you think you would need to make a nicely varied blanket? Thanks


That is a really pretty and cheerful project! So nice of you to share!


I was doing this pattern as I read it and wondering why mine looked so different. I thought, "Her treble stitches look like doubles." So I looked up differences in British and US crochet terms, and as it turns out, "treble" in British English is "double" in American English. So I was right! That's a relief. I'll be redoing this--the right way this time :-)

Beautiful pattern, by the way.


Thank You soo much! I found you on Pinterest and decided I needed to learn to crochet. I just finished my first Granny Square after only knowing how to crochet for two days! The photos were extremely helpful! Thanks again for helping out a true beginner.

My mother was a big in crochet. I have some large "blankets" that she made YEARS ago. The granny square is my favorite & I LOVE your colors. I have forgotten how to crochet & now you have inspired me! Excellent tutorial ; )


Hi Lucy,

I love this tutorial and I love your blog. I'm a beginner crocheter, and your site is just inspirational, helpful and beautiful! Thanks for helping folks like me love crochet :)


I don't know if I'm being thick, but I cannot get the bobble stitch right. Mine looks a weird shape compared to the picture. Also, I watched the video, and the bobble stitch being made in that video seems to have more steps than in this pattern. Is it just me? I really want to make these squares but I just can't get them right! It's driving me mad because generally I can crochet fine, I've made stuff up as I've gone along before, but I've attempted this about twenty times and it just looks wrong!


Thanks so much for this tutorial - I came to it a bit late, via Ravelry. I love the white linking these squares in your bit throw - so classy looking - definitely on my to-do list.

Looking forward to becoming a regular visitor here :D

Lisa xoxo
