Apparently 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.
And then, two days later, the same thing happened: I woke up in the middle of the night, having this crochet idea – happily and strangely enough, it was the same idea! 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!
As 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!
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.
Right now I’m chuffed to pieces with the framed “Sophie” in my latest cushion cover, that I’ve just listed in my Etsy shop (link here).
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!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
