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

Don’t forget the extra three rounds you’ll need to do around each square to prepare for joining and finishing your blanket. Here is the link for directions on adding the extra finishing rounds.
Translations for base rounds can be found here.
This will be necessary to get your squares to the proper ending stitch count. It 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. You may choose to add these extra rounds now or later.
Enjoy and see you all next week!!!
