granny blanket : 2 more squares

I am going to make this short because it is too nice of a day out to be sitting inside at my computer. 

WEEK THIRTY || Bavarian Square
by Little Wendy Crochet

WEEK THIRTY ONE || Daisy Center Mandala
 I am in love with this square and am so happy I chose to include it in my blanket.  The pattern is actually two different patterns: one for the mandala and one to square it off.  I may just be a teense bit impartial to mandalas (see my crochet manual board).

I did make some minor changes to the pattern in order to end up with a square that fit my blanket.

On the Daisy Mandala pattern:

Row 7: change the 5dc around to 7HDC in ea ch3 space

omit the rest of the rounds 8-11

To square off, follow the original pattern with these changes:

Round 1: ch2 instead of ch3

Round 2: do 2 stitches in the corners instead of 3

Round 3:  same but ch2 instead of 3 around

Round 4: beginning at the corner, *2dc ch2 2dc, in each of next spaces: 2dc, 2hdc, 2sc, 2sc, slst in next sc and ch space (for a total of 11 slip stitches), 2sc, 2sc, 2hdc, 2dc, repeat from * around and slst to finish off.

I will definitely be making a beautiful mandala from Zelna's pattern soon.
