Oooh That's funky looking. I like it! If I can master the hippie looking purse from the Happy Hooker then I'll try this square for another purse.  So far, that granny square from the Happy Hooker looks different every time I make it. Hmm. Anyway, I like your colors, too!

It's funny to me that this OLD OLD post has gotten dredged back up!  How nice that anyone is still looking  Wink

I maintain that color choice is really a subjective thing.  I personally like a lot of different colors, and I like a couple of colors that are contrasting and unexpected.  But you know, any time you do a crochet patter, whether it's a granny square or whatever, you can choose the colors and yarns that you like.  I think this pattern would look just as nice in varying shades of blue, or if the rounds were reassigned to just a couple of different colors.  Personalize it!

About the "hdtr", it's a "half-double-triple", and I swear I didn't make it up, but I can't remember where I got it from.  I have a lot of vintage crochet patterns...  I have found a few different things online, but they're not all the same, and I can't remember exactly what I did.  Let me work on it tonight, and I'll get back to you!

Sorry for the confusion!

Okay!  I think I have fixed the problem with Round 5.  It's kind of an important round, because that's where the square "rotates" so that the center square is diagonal.  If you go to the first post in this thread, you will see my changes in RED text.

If there are other problems or questions, let me know!  This inspires me to try to make up more squares, because the process of making up something and then trying to write it out so that others can understand it is a tricky (but fun) challenge.

Thanks again,

Melinda

I really like this and I'm bookmarking it to do after I get some other projects done.

I like how you did the colours because it really shows the stitch work! Great job!

That's great...so many grannies out there are either so flowery and blech, or absolutely plain!  Good job
