Wildflower Winkie

One of my Grandmothers recently celebrated her birthday, and since she was the first lady to introduce me (many many moons ago!) to knitting I knew she would appreciate a hand made gift.

I've been working on my crochet skills a little and felt confident in making a gift-worthy item - albeit a simple one!

My Gran cooks wonderful delicious things, particularly baked goods, so a large Winkie Square Pot Holder would be just the ticket for her dining table! The colours of this yarn, fabulous koigu KPPPM, are just the wildflower hues that my Gran loves - it was the perfect match!

The shot above gives a size comparison with the fork. Basically I started in the centre crocheting a standard Granny Square pattern and just kept going and going and going until I felt it was a suitable size!

I have no idea what a Winkie square is, it made me thin of Popeye for some reason. But what beautiful colours and lovely crocheting!!
