Yarn Used: Hobby Lobby's I Love this Yarn in Grey Beard and Sungold.
Finished size: 8"
I added a couple of rounds to make this one 8 inches. It's originally a 6" square. I really really love this pattern. It's very easy and has a ton of color options. She has a photo that shows how the square will look with different color changes, which I love when designers share.
I liked this one until I blocked it. It looks a little too stretched out now. I've been trying to keep all of the squares to 39 stitches on each side for ease in connecting them and this one was just a little on the small side so I had to stretch the heck out of it. I'm sure I'm just over-analyzing how it looks. The pattern is great though. Jacqui has a way of making really difficult looking sqaures pretty easy to make. this was definitely one of the most difficult I've made of her pattern's though, and it really wasn't that bad.
I'm going to start connecting these over the weekend! I'll share progress as I go through instagram most likely.
I really love this pattern! I think my favorite part about this sqaure is that Chris breaks down all of the color changes and shows you which row to change colors on to give the square a different look. You can do it all in one color, bring out the star or bring out the flower. I chose to go with making the star stand out. I probably could have flattened out the sides of this one a little more, but it will be fine once it's connected to the other squares in the blanket.
I've gotten a few comments that lead me to believe that some people think these patterns are mine. I think it's a language barrier type issue, but just to clear it up a little; every square has a link to the original pattern or its ravelry page and the designer listed. I haven't designed any of these granny squares except for the Dear Valentine square.
