Ok, you are tempting me to try yet another thing, and I will, but I have a christening blanket to finish and an afghan for my MIL for xmas. Too many things to try, so little time!

This is beautiful! Can't wait to try it - I hope to make two and join them as a little "make-up" bag for my 3 year old niece :) wish me luck hehe
That is just the prettiest square I think I've ever seen! I am new to making squares and I just have to do this one. Thanks for the great pattern, Suzie!
Help! I'm trying this square and the instructions are just not making sense to me. I have gotten to round 5 and am baffled! No matter how I try it, I don't end up with 12 loops, I have either more or less. Can you give a little more detail on this round? Thanks!
On round 5, you are making an extra "loop" in what will be the corners. Try not to over think it.
I loved making this square, it turned out to be very simple to make, great instructions
Thanks for the pattern, I'm really lookking forward to trying it. I have added a link to it on my blog, I hope that is ok?
Jo :)
Please help me, I can't understand Round $
I guess you mean round 4 since $ shares the 4 on my keyboard.

Fibercat did a tutorial of this square maybe that will help you.
