FATW5 – Week 30 – Extra Rounds

Four in One design created by Bluebird and Daisy

Week 30 of FATW5 has a wonderful “old school” feel to it. The Granny Square style of this design takes me back to when my grandmother was teaching me to crochet! This delightful square has texture at every stitch and uses the “stand-by” stitches of out beginner days in out crochet journeys. What a fabulous square….. with the memories of 4 different lessons all wrapped into one design!

The final stitch count per side on this square is 40 stitches….. and we have certainly used that set of Extra Rounds before. But….. here it is again!
