'Willow' Granny Squares

My lovely friend Taylor- whose family met mine at the Botkin family/Christians at the Crossroads conference- pictured below with me (doesn't she look amazing in black and white?)......showed me how to crochet a new pattern of granny square called "Willow". I LOVE the pattern, it's fun to crochet and it looks gorgeous when you get it done!
Here are all the Willow squares I've made so far, displayed on top of the hope chest at the foot of my bed...
My original square was the pink one, and I branched out and made one in blue and green as well! I can't decide which design I like better. They're both pretty. :)
Taylor found the Willow pattern in this really neat book, which I have ordered and hope to get sometime next week.

I love to crochet, and granny squares are my absolute favorite thing to crochet, but all I knew how to do was the plain old original granny square, so I am SO excited about all these new patterns to try out! :)

I am feeling ... Creative and Excited!! :D


  1. Wow! those are cool! i can't crochet. But I can't knit. =D
    My sister has tried to teach me to crochet, but I'm not very good at it........ hehe.


  2. Those look so pretty!!! I would like to learn how to crochet or knit!:D Both of the designs sre pretty.:)

  3. I have put your "Cookies and Cream" button on my site but it appears to be a bit big. I was wondering if you could trim it down.


  4. Hi Julia! =:) Those are lovely! I have gotten that book out of the library before and it has tons of ideas for blocks. I hope you enjoy it!

    I like crocheting too! I didn't know you liked to crochet!? I assume you are an intermediate crocheter? I am too. I could be better but I don't work on learning new skills enough of the time (I blog too much I guess!) =;) Do you knit as well or just the crochet?


  5. That is a really cute photo, Julia. :) I can crochet a little, but nothing like that... wanna come teach me? LOL

  6. Those are really cool! I'm normally a pink kind of person, but in this case I think the blue might be that little bit more awesome. :)
