You will Need:Crochet Hook 3.25mmI used Dungareez Cotton in various colors Stitches Used on this Pattern: Sweetheart Bunny My sister Ashley came to me almost half a year ago, asking if I could design and make a special amigurumi for a silent auction that she was helping to organize.

Rosie Posie Grannie Square Tutorial What you'll need... Various colours of yarn (I used Patons Smoothie DK) Appropriate size crochet hook for your yarn (I used a 4mm - USA G) Yarn needle for weaving in ends Difficulty: something pretty – the pattern about this pattern: i found this pretty picture on pinterest and was totally smitten. after a lot of googling and searching i wasn’t able to find the pattern, so decided to figure the pattern out myself. dottie angel‘s pictures of her thrifty find was very helpful, and i was happy to find out that this is actually a pretty simple pattern, so novices – don’t be alarmed! just go ahead and try it out :) for more pictures, check out this, this or this post. about yarn/hook: any yarn with corresponding hook will do, i find that moving up a hook size from what the yarn says makes a softer material that would work better with a blanket. i’ve made pillows with these squares so that wouldn’t matter so much. i used sandnes duo (dk weight) and hook 4 mm and the square measures 8×8 cm, with garnstudio drops paris (aran) and hook 5 mm one square is a bit over 10×10. first a couple of basics:

I think this square (like most crocheted squares) has limitless potential, so I see this as more of a guideline than an exact pattern. Once you get the basic pattern down you can play with colors and joining methods.
