Last year I wanted to crochet a "granny-circles-to-hexagons" afghan but I never have enough time to finish it. So what to do with a lot of pre-made colorful circles...? I think I've found the perfect way to use them! @;) It was a bit difficult to create an octagon (the umbrella shape) from squares (what I crocheted from the original hexagon pattern), but at least it's worth every single gray hair I grown in the process!!!

Holy Shmoly!!!! That is INCREDIBLE!!! Shocked
I've just gotten the hang of the solid, no color changes, no elaborate stitches granny square and a few times I felt like punching my yarn in it's face (if yarn HAD a face).
Wow....must bow to you and your mad skills

I'm not normally a big fan of granny squares but your parasol is amazing. Did you just buy an umbrella and use that as the base? However, you did it, this project rocks!
