I'm going to-do it at the end so if needed I can stretch them a bit to make them the same size

Cool that is what I was thinking but wasn't sure! I'll do that too :widesmile:

Wow I can really see why it is a good idea to do this one early on and why Dedri put lots of options for adding rows on her blog! Saying that it probably is actually 30 cm (or is it more @autumnalgirl ?)- my other one is only 25 (I am missing a row though!) which is what they are supposed to be!

Remind me (a dense beginner crocheter) but are we doing these to make a blanket each?

Yes lovely, we are doing 2 a month which will give us 24 by the end of the year and they are meant to be 30cm each (if using aran - 8.5 inches if you use DK) so depnding on how you put them together / borders etc it is a decent size 130 x 190 or something like that - perfect for snuggling on the sofa :thumbsup: @JabberJabber . Come on come and play you know you want to - 2 squares a month is no time at all - you can do them on the bus on the way to work :twisted: :crochet: :twisted: (big stick).

That is quite nice @MissFrodo ! I struggle to picture things not how they are in the picture but here are some a bit more how I'd do it. I think it looks lovely with the colour changes - amazing how much it changes a pattern!

Are you guys all happy to do the Flame square as 2nd for Feb @JabberJabber @girlinleeds @autumnalgirl @confusinglady @Bugglyboo ?

I fancied trying out one that is a bit more 3D so this is a good start. I think we should do one of the 3D flower ones next though :widesmile:

How do we fancy this for the first March one? Is it wrong to get them up early so I am not trying to catch up as I'm away all of March and don't think I'll have time to :crochet: at all - does anyone mind if we do that then I can try to get them done before I go? Or if you dont' want to know early I can choose them and do them but not post :hohoho: :wink: :hohoho:

And you all need to do some picking too - so far Esther and I are being big bossy's :giggle:

Love both of those. I'm struggling with crochet and knitting time at the moment as we're moving house again. I will catch up though.
