  1. What a fun way to embellish a solid granny square! I have only surface crocheted a few times. Need to add this one to my list. A bunch with a continuous string of lights would be neat. Pinned.
    Would love if you shared this at our October Granny-Spiration Challenge - a granny square inspired link up. Current one can be found here:

  2. I am loving this CAL. When you see the black lights string down to granny block do you sew on both sides of the chain loops or just down the middle. Thanks.

    1. I sewed them just down the middle and it worked well. I think either way would work!

  3. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post.

  4. Positive site, where did u come up with the information on this posting?I have read a few of the articles on your website now, and I really like your style. Thanks a million and please keep up the effective work. bulbs
