I do like this.  What kind of yarn are you going to use?

I just printed out the pattern, and I'm using yarn from a sweater I had.

As you can see it's actually two strands wrapped together, and yarn has elasticity to it, which is always good. Smiley

Your granny square looks great!!! did you have any problems in the 3rd and 4th rounds? i kept having to take mine out and start over but i couldn't put my finger on the problem. i think that mine are all going to end up different and i might have a hard time putting them together... oh well. i made 3 today...

thanks! i have four done now- but i am pretty sure i am going to have to redo two of them. c'est la vie! i am a long time knitter but i haven't picked up the needles since i learned to crochet about 2 months ago. all i have crocheted before are hats. i guess i picked a fairly complicated pattern to start out with. reading the pattern and chart is confusing for me because i keep wanting to look at it like a knitting pattern. i think i finally have the hang of it now! I can't wait to see the final product! it's going to be soooo beautiful!!! here is one of my correctly done squares....
