Asterales Granny Square
The Asterales Granny Square is a design a long time in the making. I first designed the flowery centre back in 2015. Since then, I had squared it off a couple of times but wasn’t happy with the result for one reason or another. Fast forward to September 2021 when I felt the need to try one more time and voila! We have Asterales.
The pattern is written for one colour as you see in my sample, but I’ve also included 37 different colour ways devised by some lovely folks you can use as is or as inspiration for your own colour play.
The pattern includes:
- written pattern in both UK & US terminology
- chart - right-handed and left-handed
- link to video - right handed and mirrored for left-handers
- A full glossary of all stitches and techniques used
- 37 colour options along with yarn and hook details for each
