Whispers from the Past Part 2

Whispers from the Past Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of Whispers from the Past

I have seen some gorgeous examples of your Winnie's squares this week, with some amazing colour combinations.

If you are on Facebook and have not found the Event page yet, here is a link, just click on join and you can share your progress and find lots of help.

In part 2 we will be joining the four squares together, and then working around the whole project, with some very simple double crochet and some back post stitches.

Reminiscent of simple baby blankets I have made in the past, you could easily add a pretty shell border at the end of this part and have a gorgeous blanket to wrap any little person up in love.
