SC – single crochet
HDC – half double crochet

Tension/Gauge is not necessary for this project to be perfect – if making more than one for an afghan or blanket; crocheting the same tension throughout will ensure squares are approx the same size.

|I love to crochet! To design and make patterns for both young and old is an absolute life’s passion. My daughter is my greatest inspiration! I love to try and learn new techniques, and although patience is not my strongest virtue, I have found that committing to a project and having the pleasure of a finished item, is one of life’s greatest and most satisfying pleasures. I believe that anyone can learn a new craft. I try to design and make my projects so that even a novice can do them. “Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”
