Just a quickie to post my Granny a Day square. I call this one Battenburg for obvious reasons! It is made of two of the same yarns from yesterday (the quality of my camera doesn't pick them out). There is a cerise acrylic and a varigated wool/acrylic blend in cerise, brown and green. The big square is made up of 4 small squares. Each of which is a 2 round solid granny square.
Foundation: 4ch ring
Round 1: (3 treble + 2ch) x4
Round 2: 1 treble in each treble below and 2tr + 2ch +2tr in each corner
I could have joined them as I went but I like the look of the whip stitch and they're only little so I went with that. I'm not a big sewer but I don't mind a little bit now and then !!!...!!!

- String Theory Crochet is about family. My mum, Lynn, is a brilliant and experienced crocheter who taught me everything I know. I remember her teaching classes at our house when I was little. We now work together just crocheting like crazy. We have just begun to share our little blog and we are trying to persuade (bully) other family members to post too. My mother-in-law, Dot, and partner, Stu, are both learning and my dad spins and creates his own yarns. If you're wondering about our name - my mum and I were both teachers. She taught physics so the reference is for her and I taught English so the play on words is for me. We'd love your comments and suggestions and please come across to our FB page too where you can find regular mini-updates about our crochet. Victoria x
