Circles & Squares in Progress: Free Patterns Coming Soon

free crochet pattern: granny square and circle

My Circles & Squares project is coming along nicely. Last week I showed you the Scheepjes Colour Crafter Velvet yarn I was going to work with and the colours I'd chosen. Now that I've made a couple of circles and squares I can say that I'm more than happy with how the four shades work together. The colours are so vibrant and they really reinforce one another.

I'm working on two different patterns. I started designing the granny square first. It's so great to have a design you can use for all kinds of projects: blankets, cushion covers, shawls or bags. Once I'd finished it, I wanted to do more with the circle inside the square so I decided to make a companion piece to the square. I started expanding the circle, which was a little harder than expected. I wanted it to lay completely flat and it took a lot of frogging before I was satisfied. After having designed so many items, it still surprises me how adding or losing just one stitch here and there can make such a big difference. So far I have made one large circle and a few squares. I've tried two different colour orders and will see if I can combine them in my project. Any ideas on what I'm making? Well, next week I'll reveal all!
