Crochet * Granny Square "Somalia"
Crochet * Granny Square "Somalia"

We run a fundraising for Somalia during August – similar to the one for Japan initiated by Großmütterchen’s Blogspot. I modified the famous „African Flower“ granny from hexagon to square format. You are invited cordially to join!

For starters – please use cotton or cotton-mixture matching hook #3 mm. The granny squares should measure appr. 10-11 cm. We will give you more information on how to proceed shortly.

    Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely adore this pattern and have found it extremely helpful! I created an English transcription from your video on my blog and wanted to make sure there was proper linkage to you as the original creator. Here is my transcription of your video: http://effwords.wordpress.com/2012/01/25/quilt-trip/

    Vielen Dank für das tutorial.

    I liked the „somalia“ very much and with the video it is easy to make it. It is a wonderfull project.

    I used the squares for a granny square bag (to be). If you like to see the result, I put it on my blog: http://nynkestone.blogspot.com/2011/10/wip-granny-square-bag.html.
