‘Ada’ Granny Square Pattern

Meet Ada, a new granny square pattern, which I hope will become the first of many squares. She’s a simple, straight to the point, and a little bit fancy when she wants to be. A 5-round pattern, which can be made in up to 5 colours, or keep it basic with just one colour. I hope you enjoy making this pattern, I look forward to seeing what you make. If you have Instagram, please tag #adagrannysquare so I can see your beautiful works. Or feel free to share on my Facebook page.
