Our next square in the Friends CAL was designed by New Zealand designer, Patrina Hollis. You are going to love it! It looks fabulous in one color or more. You can find the pattern on Patrina’s Ravelry Page at the link below.

My name is Patrina and I am an absolute crochet nut! I was about 8 years old when I first learnt to hook. “Wrap the wool around your hook and poke it through that stitch, wrap the wool around your hook again and pull it through the same stitch ….” OMG! I can still picture my mother teaching me now. Geez she must’ve been one patient woman to put up with me! Together with my Mum’s guidance I completed my very first project. It was a lemon yellow and white granny square

Important Additional Pattern Info
Don’t forget you will need to add an extra three rounds to your square to achieve the final 48 st/side count which is necessary for joining. You can find the instructions for all squares here. Translations for these additional rounds can be found here. The extra rounds will vary slightly from week to week because the squares vary in ending stitch counts so be sure to follow the directions for each square.
Enjoy and see you all next week!!!
