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.
Is there a written pattern?
we on nadelspiel do only have a written pattern in German. But if you look a few comments below. Krystle K made a translation and posted it in her blog.
hi beautiful square may i ask are you using us or uk crochet terms please

What a beautiful little square! I have been looking for an interesting square like this for ages. Lovely clear video too. What a lovely relaxing voice. Thank you 🙂
Thank you, Krystle for writing the pattern out!
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/
Thank you, Lila!

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.
