After reading everyones comments. This tutorial is very good. First of all

Nadelspiel I can follow you BUT, slow down on your crochet for others who
are not at that level.
I have made this, it is beautiful.
Thank you for your lovely tutorial.

lucid and thorough instructions are a true gift.

Maybe make your squares using a thicker wool and bigger hook? could make it
less of a job for you. You could do it in less squares.

A very good video and a beautiful design! Everything is explained in a calm
and clear tone of voice, very nice. You do need some experience with
crochet to understand some of it though, but if you're not familiar with a
certain stitch you can always look it up! I'm definitly gonna use this
design for a grannysquare blanket!

Author Erin Adkins ( ago)
Thank you for this tutorial! I think I have found the perfect square for
the blanket design in my head!

Author anandazen30 ( ago)
Thank you for the video. Your explanation is excellent however your voice
is going at one pace while your hands go much more faster. It is impossible
to see what you're doing. The very last round it's the most difficult to
understand it doesn't matter how many times i go back. I've tried already 7
times. Review the video, remember you are teaching. Lovely flower. I hope i
get it.

Author 5dorkycastillos ( ago)
Beautiful. English may not be your Mother Tongue, but you do a superb job
teaching in it despite the fact. I can understand you perfectly, and really
enjoy your videos. Your creations are unique and motivating. Thank you. =D

porfavor si, te mando mis bendiciones y muchos besos, gracias, sandy

Author planetjanknit ( ago)
Thank you! Beautiful and lovely! Would you mind, please, explaining what to
do with the loose strands from color changes? Or suggest where I could find
your instructions? I've stayed away from G. Squares for 2 reasons--one
being the strands left off and the other--I've yet to find such artful and
imaginative Granny Squares as yours--until now! I love flowers! Thank you
again--your English is soothing too; )

Author s13rr4buf3 ( ago)
