You know what I love about Cheryl’s patterns? How she includes new stitches and techniques in so many of them. Plus, her site is a veritable course on effective use of color in crochet design.
With her Even Handed Granny Square pattern, you’ll learn how to use the fishermen’s knot to make virtually seamless color changes. How cool is that? A color change technique that looks great and eliminates having to weave in ends.
She teaches you how to make a nice even square that will require very little blocking. And, as if a pretty granny square pattern, learning how to make seamless color changes and make virtually perfect squares wasn’t enough; Cheryl will also teach you how to use the stacked single crochet stitch to start new rounds. No more noticeable chain 3s to start the rounds – making this or any other granny square you make look even better.
Oh, one more thing; the center flower is made after you’ve made the square but is not appliquéd.
