    I have been looking through so many Granny Squares to use up my stash of excess yarns. I think I have just hit the JACKPOT. {;0).
    I've wanted something not too 'open', but not totally solid either. And this is 'IT' .
    I can now plan on sitting our in my yard in my new swing, and crocheting 'til my hearts content.
    Love this pattern, and thank you for sharing.
