A little but better late than never? I posted a photo of this Granny Square on Granny Square day. I made it that evening so I didn't get to prepare the video, etc. This square is so beautiful and the texture is amazing! It's definitely a challenging square reading the pattern so hopefully this video will guide you through!
This square is from the Crochet Granny Squares Book. This square stood out to me of all the squares.

I used Loops and Threads, Impeccable in the color Gold. You can definitely follow along with any brand (or weight) of your choice!
