Since this pattern has been popular for many years on my web site. I have decided to put it on Ravelry.

I used DK yarn but the pattern gives the basic principles for making any size granny circle in any yarn. Hook size should be standard for the chosen yarn.

The pattern also gives a chart for a suggested edging.

The instructions start with a slightly tongue in cheek but I think none the less accurate idea of the maths behind my method of constructing the granny circle.

I have now added a picture of a lovely babay blanket that was made using the pattern - using a gradient 4ply yarn by Stenli from Bulgaria, James C. Brett Baby 4ply for the border all on a Tulip Etimo Gold 3.75mm hook. I had 12 groups of 3tr between the 6tr cluster.
