  1. Can’t find a link for the starting with a granny blanket. Can you send me the proper link please?

    1. Hi Tracy, this blanket was actually based on the shawl pattern. You will find the link under the picture. Hope this helps!

  2. I get it! It’s very easy to understand the pattern of starting with a granny …. Just make a whole granny instead of a half granny as you would for the shawl.Then do each round as indicated.

    Thank you for the pattern.

  3. I would love the pattern for the pink fan shell granny square. It only sends you to a YouTube video which I don’t understand her. Can you please send me the actual pattern please? Thank you.

  4. I would also like to receive the pattern for the cream, tan and brown blanket shown in the picture.
