Springtime Magic Granny

Springtime Magic Granny Square
(Go to Norwegian pattern / gå til norsk oppskrift)
August 15th is the Granny Square day. Susan, IG-profile @suregal27, created this event in 2014, and the idea was that people from all over the world would post a close up, full framed photo of a granny square, tag it with #grannysquareday2018 (this years tag) At the end of the day, you could click on the tag, find thousands of beautiful granny squares and create your own virtual granny square blanket.


This year I decided to make my Springtime Magic Mandala into a square, to celebrate Granny Square Day, and I would like to share my pattern with you.

Note I,ve done a couple of small adjustment; I decided to use dc instead of hdc on round 5.
(The pink and turquoise are made with hdc, the purple and grey one is made with dc)
