I wasn't picky about the colour palette. I just jumped right in...and then, of course, I couldn't stop! So over the course of a week I crocheted ALL nine squares. I made A LOT of mistakes but was too impatient to rip them out and start again so I sort of adjusted the pattern where I'd made the "mistakes". Anyhow...I finished the nine squares, in their random rather icky colours and learned so much along the way about overlay crochet. Which was the initial objective, increasing my crochet repertoire.
Of course, Babe (aka Augusta ) had been diligently overseeing my progress and quickly claimed the finished square as her own personal little blanket...after much testing for nap-ability.
I will definitely be revisiting this pattern again, following the pattern and tutorials to the letter, and taking a bit more time to choose a lovely palette. I imagine various shades of Blue, with Ivory and Rose? I am so humbled by the brilliant, and generous crochet designers who share their beautiful designs so freely. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart! You are all amazing!
Have a wonderful week and remember, Happiness Is An Inside Job!
