This is a wonderful square you designed! I just finished mine for a friend's comfort-ghan for her dad ~ she's gonna love this one! :>) Now I'm going to have to make an afghan for my son and his wife, and then one for me, too. Thanks for sharing your talent, Aurora.

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful square!! Truly a work of art with easy instructions to follow!! I'll make this pattern into an afghan for my daughter going to college as a "Never ending Love" between a mother and child. Thanks again!

TennCay said...

So pretty! Round 2 threw me because it didn't have the instructions to repeat around...thought it was some new manner of construction, the combination of 3-D texture and sturdy square. Thank you!

Claire Caruso said...

This square is lovely, thank you so much for sharing it. I would love to try it, but could you advise what TR means? Thank you!!

I'm going to make this for a friend at work. She and her husband are longing for a baby, and I think this is just the right pattern for a baby blanket! Thanks for the inspiration,I can't wait to get started. :-)

Elly D said...

Thank you for the beautiful designed square :)

Teresa Barkley said...

Claire Caruso TR means treble crochet. Hope that helps. I love this for the center of a afghan.

Jessica Audette said...

Good evening, I am stuck on Round 9.

** (TR BEHIND the heart hump in the stitch you originally made the 10tr in row 7)**

it confuses me..please help me so I can finish this wonderful square. I am going to be sharing the square as part of a square swap.

Thank you

Hi Jessica, let me see if I can help without looking at my square. I will be redoing this one soon, as I am rewriting my patterns, and will either video this, or take a picture of this st, but in rnd 7 you worked 10trc for the heart hump, remember? that is the one you work in for this one..........ugh, I am confusing myself too, If you want I will work this sq tonight and take a short video of this. I am working another sq right now for another lady, but will do this.

For rd. 2, it only says to make 2 corners. was it supposed to say repeat 2 more times? If not, how do you do the first BegCorn, as there is no ch 2 space to ss into.

And, yes, it is such a beautiful square!


Debi G said...

Thank you for sharing! Truly Beautiful! This will look lovely in an afghan for my 7 year old Grand Daughter.
