What can be done with an afghan square? Tons! You can create a purse/tote, blankets, pillows, sachets, jewelry, washcloths, clothing, hats, scarves... just to name a few! This fun afghan square was designed for the 2015 Mystery Lapghan CAL. The name for this square came from my mother. I knew I wanted either "Granny" or a form of 'four' to be in the title, but I couldn't quite think of anything I liked. When my mother came out for some coffee, I hopped over to the kitchen counter and started bouncing ideas off of her. She wasn't really into any of mine, but did come up with Cuatro Esquinas, which is Spanish for Four Corners. I said, "Okay, the Cuatro Esquinas Granny Square", and she suggested "Cuatro Esquinas de Abuela", which translates to "Four Corners of Grandma". Hehe! Very unique, and creative - Love it! Hope you do too. This is a 6 page PDF with 7 photos, including photos showing how to join the squares. I do have a PDF available with just the main two photos for a more printer friendly option - you can email me for it should you desire it instead - BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Single Crochet Double Crochet Photo Tutorial Included for Joining Squares GAUGE 14 DC x 8 Rows = 4" SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 6" PREFERRED BRAND/YARN I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn.

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
