Allara’s Dream Granny Square

Some people say that dreams are for good children, and as an adult, you need to be more of a realist. Your relatives, society, and the entire world expect you to be one. However, just as C.S. Lewis said -“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”. I always try to set myself new goals when it comes to making new patterns. This time I decided to create a blanket that would consist of various blocks. This particular granny square is its first element.

    Beautiful crocheted work. Do you have any patterns on YouTube or patterns that I can print out?

      Hi, thank you for your kind words. I have free PDF patterns on my Ravelry account so that you can print them easily. So far, no YT tutorials but I’m planning to make some soon.
