Grandma All Round Tutorial

Grandma All Round...

My Grandma's not square
she's perfectly round.
She eats Christmas pudding
and never gains a pound.
Or so she says
and I believe it to be true.
Cause Grandma's never lie
when it comes to food...

Here is the Tutorial...

8 ply
and size 3.5 hook...



First round finished...




Second round finished...




Third round finished...





Congratulations!!!
You have your very own
Grandma All Round...

But we are not quite finished
I now have a flickr group where
everyone can share their
Grandma Tutorial photo's...
How cool!!!

Now if you are a big fan of caravans then
be sure to check my Loving The Vintage blog
for my next post...
But I will let all my crafty friends here in on
my big news as well..
The amazing Leah
has just completed the most beautiful
painting of my adorable Roma...
How sweet is that...
you can also purchase prints of her work
on her Etsy shop
Click the image to go straight to the listing...

Now be sure to take a look and heart a fabulous piece of art...
Or look through her other inspirational pieces of work...
I will be purchasing a few more prints to go with this one...
Can you imagine how sweet this print
and some more of Leah's caravan prints
will look hanging up in my new house...

Just a short reminder...

Support art and do the right thing I say...

A note to thank you for your wonderful tutorials! I just found your blog and am enjoying it quite a lot. Oh, and thank you kindly for making the US designations clear on your patterns. I appreciate that since I am from the USA.
Thanks again!

I've just made the Granny Christmas Tree - brilliant. Few more with some twinkles will look lovely over the fireplace for Christmas. I saw the Granny Hearts on your other blog. Do you have a tutorial for these?

yarn_lady said...

Thanks so much for the granny go round! I finished one just now and I know I am not going to stop till I gift every one I know a set of these lovely coasters!!!

Colleen said...

Loved the twinkles, now I am in love the granny circles. Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful tutorials! Not exactly sure what I am going to make out of them, but my stack is growing :)

I have recently found your blog via Attic24 and have fallen in love with your work.

I do have a question for you. I have saved several of your patterns for future projects and wanted to know if you allow people to sell the items made from your patterns or if they're for personal use only. I will admit that I haven't gotten through all of your blog yet, so may have missed this information.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Michelle said...

Dear AJ...
It is perfecty fine for people to make and sell there crocheting projects from my tutorials...
I just love that so many people are using them and there is some grandma goodness all over the world...
Regards...thanks for asking...

jontina said...

Thanks for showing how to make these adorable circles, must make some right away so i can remember how to do it.. Thanks again.. :))

Nazia said...

Thank you for posting step-by-step instructions on many wonderful ideas to crochet on your blog. I'm just starting to crochet on my own by following instructions and wanted to know what does treble(dc) mean? Is is treble crocht or double-trebel? Similarly what does dc(sc) mean? Double crochet stitch or single crochet or double and single crochet in same stitch?

michelle said...

You have the most wonderful tutorials. Thank you for being so generous with them. I can't wait to try your Daisy Cushion once I become a little more proficient!
