  2. I just finished my Granny Square Cardigan and I am so tickled pink! It is so super comfy and warm. I will be using it all summer long at the evening concerts and play at our local park, as it is by the ocean and can be cooler in the night.

    The ENTIRE time I was crocheting it I had such joy! At first sight I loved it, and the video was so easy to understand. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your craft and bringing joy into my week as you have.

  11. Hi, hope all is well! I am going to try and make the 365 or is it 366. I’ve made 3 so far but I just started yesterday. I’ve been crocheting since I was 7, I’ll be 75 in November. My mom always made granny squares so did my older sister. I’m crocheting a baby blanket right now, I am also an avid quilter. I’ve never made a granny square until now. With your outstanding instructions I am going to attempt to make as many as I can. Thank you Nadia.

  12. Dou you take requests? I stumbled on videos from Helenmay. She has the sweetest cacoon and matching hat as well as a baby blanket done in a similar stitch. The main problem is, she shoots from the side front. For someone trying to learn I can’t see what she is doing. I would love to make the cacoon and hat as my second project. Could you make us a video. She said the pattern isn’t written down. Your a much better teacher. Could your mermaid be turned into a cacoon? Could you also give lessons on pattern reading. I wanted to learn crochet because my late aunt made Xmas snowflakes when I was little. I have purchased a book but for me it’s in another language. Need your help. Thank you.

  26. I am new to finding crocheting projects on the Internet. You are truly the best from all I’ve looked at the past 6 months. Your tutorials have enabled me to make the shark blanket for my grandson and the mermaid for his girlfriend. Both of them loved their blankets. The gentlemen’s scarf was exquisite as was the classic scarf. I thank you so much. Will you be showing shark slippers for adults? I know my grandson would wear them and appreciate them.
    Please stay well and take care!
