Free Pattern: Mitred Granny Square (Optical Illusion Blanket) Updated Pattern

Here is the promised update of my popular crochet pattern for the Mitred Granny Square (or Optical Illusion Square as some of my subscribers have described it). It's the latest of my older patterns to make it's move from my blog over to my new website — which leaves just three of my older patterns to make the move and then the pattern transission is complete.

I first published this pattern here on my blog in February 2013 after coming up with the design while planning a blanket for my teenage son. I wanted the blanket to have the feel of a granny square blanket but the look needed to have a more modern take on the traditional look to suit him. The square pattern I envisaged using also needed to be easy for crocheting while watching television. With a bit of fiddling about and some experimenting my Mitred Granny Square evolved. I'm really pleased with the shading or optical illusion this square gives to the completed blanket. So if you have an empty hook and some yarn looking for a project, then this could be the one for you. 
You'll find the updated pattern FREE to download on my website. Here is the link you need 😀 https://www.weediflowercreations.com/free-patterns
Wishing you lots of enjoyment making this blanket.

Free Cross Stitch Chart: Easter Sampler 2021

Hello there, i'm hoping you are all keeping well.  I've been busy this week reacquainting myself with the cross stitch design program on my laptop which hasn't been used for quite a while.  In the process of fiddling about and remembering what was where, this little sampler took shape and I thought you may enjoy it.   

It's perfect as a quick project for someone who is already comfortable with stitching, or for a beginner learning to cross stitch for the first time.  Each of the elements making up the sampler can be used on their own or combined in small groups to create a mini design perfect for a gift tag or for embellishing an egg cosy or napkin.  This project is ideal for using up scraps of fabric and left over embroidery cotton in your stash. 

There is an extra 'stitch free' project idea for children on the last page of the chart, which is free to download on my website at www.weediflowercreations.com

Wishing you a relaxing weekend.
