Granny Square #8

This weeks crochet granny square is a mix of the Traditional Granny Square and The Cluster Square from last week. If you’re new to cluster stitches check out Granny Square #7 first.

This weekend has been the first weekend I’ve been able to sit outside in the sun all day long! The weather has been glorious here in Sussex. So for a change and to reflect my sunny mood I’ve used yellow and green for both the granny squares and the pattern drawing.
