Mini ♥ Granny Square

Almost a week ago I saw a tiny granny square with a heart in the middle on instagram (made by talented Susan @suregal27)
and today I finally tried it out :)

heart was simple and looked cute but I struggled to make the second round square up like it should according to the pattern .. so obviously - I frogged it a few times and finally made my own perfect hearty granny square ♥



1st row - heart! (as seen on Susans @suregal27 instagram profile)

Magic circle. Ch2, 3 tr, 3 dc, 1tr, 3dc, 3 tr worked in magic circle. Ch2, sl st in magic circle. Tighten magic circle.

Letter of the week: A

And the naming game is ON:

Annabella
Adriana
Aurelia
Aurora
Adelaide

and many more I like (I won't show you because they do not start with A :P ) ... hubby says none of mine could be the one and only for our little princess and thank god after more than two months of indecision he has his own favourite. A name I hadn't even considered (to be honest I hadn't even noticed it), but each day I like it more and more ... so probably me and my 30 possibilities will have to cave in and accept the one he has chosen ...


Pattern for letter A is pretty much the same as for letter V just turn it around and add "-" similar like I did for H ;)
