note: i am just calling it granny squares as i know of no other name to call them, samplers? call it what you want :D


Itti 10/31/2011 #

I know what you mean by "granny squares". I wouldn't have understood "sampler".

kellybleu 10/31/2011 #

Is there any restrictions on the type of yarn we use?

ChantalB 10/31/2011 #

@kellyblue : no restriction, as long as the square ends up 6x6" @Itti : i like to call anything that has a missmatch of stitch styles a sampler, just like a crosstitch sampler contains a large variety of stitch styles as well

nad1a 11/ 1/2011 #

Yay, this is cool!!!

ChantalB 11/ 1/2011 #

@nad1a : glad you think so :D this is giving me a chance to go through this new book i got called 400 stitches :D 1 down 399 left to go :D

bellazoo 11/ 7/2011 #

bellazoo 11/ 7/2011 #

bahahaha sorry commented on the wrong thread hahaha!

widelo123 11/ 8/2011 #

Are we just sending one to each partner? I know, the regional has sending two to each partner. What ever, I am in.

maisonlula 11/11/2011 #

I'm in too!! I don't know if it is one partner or two..
Also, if you are knitting me (if it's not knitting then please forget this message) can you please send me a note to how you did the pattern?? I'm trying to learn new patterns,, it would really be appreciated!!

gypsyinthecastle 11/13/2011 #

If they are cotton we call them wash cloths. :)

Check out this Google search result for all the possibilities of Granny Squares !

twobluecrows 11/15/2011 #

Please no wool for me! Anything else soft is wonderful!

maisonlula 11/16/2011 #

I'm knitting mine in 100% cotton by Debbie Bliss, I know that some people are allergic to wool.

twobluecrows 11/16/2011 #

Sorry for taking up soace with this, but I'd love opinions from you "grannys" about a potential swap?
I love this type of afghan so I was thinking of doing a swap for: four 3", one 6", one 9" & one 12" square set (a total of 7 squares each set) for each of a number of partners, and doing enough of a series over enough time to make a big afghan like this.--or a choice of four 3", two 6" or a 12", etc.

My questions are: Does this sound interesting/do-able? How much time between swaps, and how many partners would be reasonable?
Please PM me with your answers so we don't take up space here. Thanks, Cyn

ChantalB 11/17/2011 #

@widelo123 : one partner, but i am hosting this once a month, if people are interested in 2 partners i can set it for 2 next month, i myself wouldn't mind 2

Genieslot 11/19/2011 #

Can this be a weaved square as I weave all my wool

maisonlula 11/22/2011 #

gosh I keep messing up my square because I'm so nervous!! hahaha... I'm saying sorry in advance!!!

kristiamb 11/24/2011 #

How many squares do we send to our partners?

nad1a 11/27/2011 #

I'm practicing and practicing but it's really hard!! If I'm not able to make a nice one, I'm out of this swap :(

heritagedecouleurs 11/29/2011 #

I like this one and I hope there´ll follow a lots of them...so I would make a blanket in pastel colors cotton with squares of the whole world for my spare room...

heritagedecouleurs 11/29/2011 #

and of course if someone will use another yarn or weaving a square it´s also ok ...I´m so curious about the square I´ll recieve :- ))

thunnina81 11/29/2011 #

hello all;) I'm new:) I can swap?

thunnina81 11/29/2011 #

hello all;) I'm new:) I can swap?

bananasock 11/29/2011 #

i think is a great idea, but next time do one with more partners so we can each make a swap bot afghan from pieces we get from all over the world!

ChantalB 11/29/2011 #

next swap is being made now, will have 2 partners in it, hope all is well

ChantalB 11/29/2011 #


ChantalB 11/29/2011 #

if the next one goes well might try for 3 partners, but we will see when it gets to that

nadiwoo 11/30/2011 #

Hey, I'm new to swapbot, this is my first ever swap! How do I know who to send my granny squares to?

1leemeadows 11/30/2011 #

Thunnina81 if you want to swap granny squares, I will gladly swap with you, we were all new at one time or another. I enjoy helping our new swappers get a start on their ratings. Just send a message. Happy Swapping

gmarie830 11/30/2011 #

I am also "spanking brand new" to Swap-Bot and eager to learn and participate where I can. This seems like a good swap for me to take my first plunge! I'm excited!

pandakitty 11/30/2011 #

I still do not see anything about how many squares are to be sent to the 1 partner.

thecosmickid 12/ 1/2011 #

@pandakitty You'll have 2 partners, and you'll send 1 square to each partner. That's what I understood anyway :)

jenthehoover 12/ 2/2011 #

looking forward to seeing who to send to ;)

gmarie830 12/ 3/2011 #

I, too, am looking for to seeing who I'm assigned to. I would really like to read their profile before I begin my blocks....and the deadline has begun too loom..... :-(

heritagedecouleurs 12/ 4/2011 #

I´m also looking to seeing my partner , because I would see if they have a wishes ... and so we would have not much time to make our square ...

nad1a 12/ 5/2011 #

When are my partners being assigned?

kristiamb 12/ 5/2011 #

Hi Chantal, I want to make sure I'm sending the correct amount to each partner - one square each correct?

kristiamb 12/ 5/2011 #

Also an FYI - not sure if you all are familiar with pinintrest.com. There are free crochet square patterns on that site once you join. No fee to join.

diva72mom 12/ 5/2011 #

Why do I only see 2 addresses of people to send to, although there are 38 in the swap? How many squares go to each person?

thunnina81 12/ 6/2011 #

to me it says that I have two patners but have not received any mail ... help meee

thunnina81 12/ 6/2011 #

Anaryawe 12/11/2011 #

Srsly people, I know the exited confusion of a beginner, but you'll make everybody's life easier if you take five minutes to read this: http://www.swap-bot.com/faq.php

thunnina81 12/12/2011 #

Hello enough to respond not disappear ..... cmq for you at the beginning has been most difficult is not it? cmq because I solved my doubts .... swaps are beautiful even if you still create new friendships for me ....

good morning

saturner 12/21/2011 #

The swap should be better explained for beginners. A lot people still confused trying to understand how many squares should send to each partner. All the swaps rules should be very detailed explained, including if you get's flaked and if there is any angel. I am not beginner but I don't know the answer either. So I will send one for each.

jenthehoover 12/23/2011 #

Sorry I got caught up in the season...

shelbysbarn 12/25/2011 #

Just leaving an FYI comment here as well. I've contacted my partners...between my son being sick, the holidays and then no money to ship, I got behind, but I've contacted them both and let them know they are on their way soon!

thunnina81 12/31/2011 #

Thanks satuer ... I end up not to make mistakes I have sent two to one, and I'm finishing the other two ... I'm late because I started too late: (I was hoping for some advice ... cmq I apologize to those who should receive from me ... but be certain to come;) happy new year

thunnina81 12/31/2011 #

I wrote to my cmq patners but did not answer either: (
