  1. Plain Granny Square Pattern / Dutch translation / YouTube Video / Ravelry link – This humble plain granny square is perhaps the most important square in the #VVCAL. You will make at least one every week of the CAL, and use this square to make sure the rest of your squares are the right size.

  1. I have a question about the eucalyptus square. On row 2 your graph and written instructions say/show 3 DC in the chain 3 spaces. But your picture of the square only shows 2. By following your instructions my square doesn’t look anything like the picture. Which one is correct?

    • You can do 2 DC instead of 3 if you like! When I did the original square, I did 2, but then I did 3 on the chart, so I left it! They get skipped over on the next round anyway, so definitely do whichever you feel comfortable with. I made it with 3 for the video so it would all match up. Maybe check out the video? Hope this helps a bit! Happy crafting 🙂

  2. Hi, I too did 2 dc in row 2 because three was too bulky. There were some other differences between the charted and written pattern. I followed the chart, but made edits on my PDF copy of the file if you would like these.
