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 can be described as a “craft, coffee and cat addict”. I began my crafting journey more than 10 years ago with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thanks Aunt Arlys!). In 2014, I jumped head first into crocheting and jewelry making, and my blogging journey as EyeLoveKnots, named in honor of family members affected by Retinoblastoma - a cancer of the eye. I currently craft part time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback - hoping to make it to full time soon! I can also be found on, where I have begun a craft directory!
