crochet:: hawaiian granny square pattern
I am thoroughly enjoying my crafting right now.
I am so thankful that I have hobbies to take my mind off my troubles.
Loving the hooker therapy.
No big secret here ~ my dreamy layers pillow is just a giant hawaiian granny square.
I have searched the interwebs to find a pre-typed version to share to no avail.
So, I must undertake this on behalf of our great-great-great-great-great-grannies.
My pattern for this has always been scribbled on paper, copied out of one of my Granma Amy’s books years ago.
I have no idea to whom the credit should go for this old granny square pattern. But here it is…
