granny square sampler afghan- week 8

IMG_1057

We are hard at work on Emma's room this week (pictures soon) and there is, as always, quite a bit of DIY involved. In fact, there are consecutive projects going on all over the house. Kind of chaotic! This all means no time for much crochet this week, as lovely as that sounds. But I did manage to complete half of this week's assignment, I'm hoping to finish the rest over the weekend. I turned to my trusty crochet pinterest board and found one that I think adds some nice variety to our sampler. The Sunburst. This one feels retro to me, kind of 70's, is that what you see? Anyway, her directions are written a little differently than what I'm used to. For example, she indicates the number of times you make a stitch after the stitch, (For example: "R1: Working in ring, sc 16".) You'll get it, I think this granny square is pretty straightforward.

The Sunburst

Make 2 of these this week, and make sure they look quite different from each other color-wise.

And here's an optional challenge this week for anyone that wants to try it- add in a very random color, one that doesn't look quite right with the original palette you planned and gathered for this sampler. Use it in small, but noticeable chunks in the next few weeks. You may be pleasantly surprised at what you see!

Previous week's granny squares can all be found here.

Have a great weekend everyone! Wish me luck on finishing Emma's room, we're gonna need it!

    Oh, the pop of bright yellow I’m using is going to look great on this square.
