Rules:

3- No deadlines! No certain nbr of rounds required! You are free to use the yarn that you like, the colors that you love and make it as big as you want 🙂

If you have already began one you can continue…It is after all just a fun experience and our goal is to share something we are all creating with the same classic pattern used ages ago by our grandmothers…a simple granny square 🙂
