Link to Free Crochet Pattern--I Forgot to Post on Monday 18 July 2011

Quick post because I just realized that I didn't post a link for a free pattern on Monday. Here's a cute scarf with pockets. There is a knit version and a crochet version. I hope you enjoy and I'm sorry I forgot to post on Monday. I'm getting ready to schedule a month's worth so I won't be forgetting for a while. Hugs...

New (to Me) Way to Join Granny Squares...

I've been in a phase of making afghans out of granny squares. When it comes to joining them, I like to crochet them together on the right side so that I have an interesting 3D effect. If by chance, I sew them together, I make sure that I have the final round of each square the same color as the yarn I'm sewing them with so that the seam isn't visible. Here is a great idea to sew with an "invisible" seam. Look at her example--a scarf made out of a gazillion tiny squares!

Another blog I read linked to the tutorial.

Hope your week is going well. Take care..
