  1. I love your work keep it up i will be back i am working a a project for my daughters wedding and cant do anything else right now but ill be back love . your sit is great and so is your work
    thank you

  2. I’m fairly new to crocheting but was wondering if I want a throw using this would I make squares and sew them together or make the square larger? It seems like it would be very warm and I try to use throws to keep warm in the winter and this just looked like something I would use. Thanks, Rebecca

    • Hi Rebecca, you could actually do either. You could make a bunch of these squares and sew them together, or you could increase the pattern and make it one large afghan…your choice. If you want to make one large afghan just increase your stitch count in multiples of 2.
