Can anybody help me with the black and white rounds that go around each 4-granny group?  I thought I could figure it out, but it's making my head hurt to think that hard.  I haven't figured it out yet.

Does anybody have a pattern with these type of stitches?  If someone could email me those instructions, I'd appreciate it.  In the meantime, I'm looking around trying to find it.  I know it's a combination of fpdc and bpdc, I just haven't been able to figure it out.

Again, here is the picture:

Square Windows Bedspread

Edited to add:  I found the pattern HERE, but I would still like it via email if someone has it or knows how to do it so that I don’t have to wait for the book to arrive via snail mail.  I have purchased it.


  1. Ya got me kid.....You could always just do a couple rounds of grannys...I like the idea of black and white though

  2. Sorry Pammy Sue - I wish I could help you out but I've never seen that border before.

  3. Hi Pammy Sue, I can't locate your e-mail on your blog, so I'll just leave you a quick note here. I don't have the book, but it looks like they are alternating rounds of the black and white leaving a chain space for the front post crochet to come over into the row below. The black row (going outward) looks like it might be 3 sc with a chain 1 in-between, then when you do the next round of white, you would be front posting over the black chain 1 and into the first round of white. Not sure if that's any help, but I hope so. That book looks like it has some pretty patterns. Good luck and I hope that helps even a little. Heather

  4. heather's sounds like it would work.

    Ii am wondering about this:

    Round 1:With white *3 sc, ch 1,sk 1,* repeat with 3 sc in corner

    Round 2: Repeat Round 1 with black only make corners (sc,ch 2, sc).

    Rpund 3: Using black and white together . . .SC black into black and do a long sc of white into. the ch 1 on round 1. Corners would be (sc wh, sc black, ch 2, sc black, sc white)

  5. Hello!!!!
    I am rather new at this, but hope this can help.
    Search in Ravelry for artsy afghans (pattern search). A couple of projects come up and if you look at the pics u shoul be able to crack the pattern! Searching for moer help.....

  6. I tend to stay away from fp and bp. They intimidate me really bad...don't know why. That's a beautiful blanket though.

  7. Hey just order this book with this pattern in it. I love how beautiful the afghan looks with black trim. When I get it I let you know and share if you like. Take care my friend will keep in touch.

  8. Wow, I can't wait to see whatcha come up with on this one. AND as fast as you crochet, I know I won't have to wait for long to seeeeee it! :) I know what you mean about attaching the squares together. That is why I haven't put mine together yet. New years resolution to finish it is coming to mind. Uh, oh... Nah, not. It will get done when I can get it done, no rushing and crazy resolutions here.
