  3. Denise,
    I just checked and it is there. Try clicking on the "Watch in High Quality" located to the bottom right of the video.

  4. Ok, that's odd. I had to do the opposite and click on "low quality". Thanks! Now I can try this one this weekend.

  6. Hi

    I am a little confused about Round 3. in the video I believe you say to do DC, but on the written Pattern it says HDC. What is the correct stitch?

  7. Hi Teresa,

    I just love your blogs. I am a beginner and just started crocheting granny squares. I finished a traditional and solid square granny. I want to make an afghan and would like to know if I could use different types of granny squares including the sunbeam and others together in an afghan instead of having only one type of granny square. Your helpis highly appreciated. Thanks in advance
