One of my next attempts at these happy little projects was this fabulous 8 petal flower pattern from The Perfect Knot.
This time I made my square in size 3 crochet thread, and so instead of it being a 6 inch yarn square as the pattern said, mine was a 4 inch square.
I have made other patterns and found this ratio holds true throughout, so if you wanted to try your hand at these thread granny squares, you'll know what to expect if you choose to work one in size 3 thread too.
That square was too pretty to just let hang in my window all by itself, so I made it a twin, and turned them into a votive candle cover! This is an idea you could use with lots of other granny square patterns, but because this design has that 3-dimensional flower thing going on in the center it is just perfect for this method of displaying
Next, I took another 6 inch square pattern and worked it in size 10 thread, my usual medium of choice.
What I got was a perfectly petite half-size 3 inch square. This time I made 4 alike and joined them around a smaller square glass votive.
That design is called 'Freesia' and I found it as a free pattern on Ravelry.
And again, the proportions seem to hold true so that any 6 inch square pattern turns into a half-size square when worked in size 10 crochet thread! Such tiny little fun... there must be oodles of ways to use these little bits of crochet goodness.
