This week, I’m sharing another square pattern inspired by the Spring Garden theme of Crochetville’s National Crochet Month Designer Blog Tour. I started off the tour by sharing my Hydrangea Shrub granny square pattern, and last week, I released A Ray of Sunshine. I’ll be releasing one square a week during NatCroMo
, and the patterns are available as free Ravelry downloads through March with the coupon code NatCroMo14.
I call this square Coming Up Roses, and once again, it’s inspired by childhood memories at my maternal grandmother’s house. Pink roses used to grow on the fence between her back yard and her neighbors’s yard. I think the roses actually belonged to the neighbor, but sharing didn’t seem to be a problem.
I have to say that I also have some…thorny memories related to those roses (imagine climbing a fence with roses growing on it and you’ll have an idea). But don’t worry, I focused on just the happy memories when designing this square!
