Follow-up Friday – Granny Square Sophie

maRRose - CCC --- granny square Sophie-100Hot off the needle, here she is, my latest granny square “Sophie”!
I’m so pleased how she turned out!

maRRose - CCC --- granny square Sophie-22Apparently a (creative) brain works in mysterious ways, at least mine does.
You see, a couple of weeks ago, I woke up one morning remembering I had an idea for a fun crochet square that night.
The thing was: that was all I remembered! How ever hard I tried, I could not track down the specifics – very, very frustrating.

I was too sleepy and tired to get up and jot it down, but I was not too sleepy and tired to tell myself, I really-really had to try to remember things this time. And that’s what happened, hurray! When I woke up that morning, the first thing that came to mind, was the notion for this flowery granny square: Sophie!

maRRose - CCC --- granny square Sophie-25As things go when you try to transform an idea into crochet reality, it took quite some tries before I was finally happy with “Sophie”, but yes, that’s what I am now, and I’m so pleased to share her with you today!maRRose - CCC --- granny square Sophie-28

It turns out, she’s pretty versatile too; without her frame, I think she would be quite adorable as a shawl, and I’m eager to work some more on my first attempt.

The fabric comes from my stash, and turns out to be a pretty perfect match, and yep, I’ve been zipper-sewing once more – chuffed about that too…..maRRose - CCC --- granny square Sophie-26 maRRose - CCC --- granny square Sophie-27

You can find the pattern here (Granny Square Sophie-pdf), or in the blog tutorial section (here), and I sure hope making her will bring you as much joy as it brought me.
Oh, and do share your “Sophies”, using the “maRRosegrannysquareSophie” hashtag: I’d love to see them!
