The Circled Granny Square is the January 2016 BAMCAL 6 inch block. You can find the free pattern HERE. I had trouble printing off the pattern so I had to copy and paste the text into a document to get it to print. The BAMCAL step-by-step pictures really helped me with this first square.
The first set I made was in my Red Magnolia Splash color-way. I really like how these colors are looking together. This was a fun, easy square to make. Mine came out a bit on the large size at 6.5 inches so instead of using a dc on the last round I used a sc. It should be fine once joined with my other squares.
I decided to make 4 of the 6 inch squares and join them into a 12 inch 4-patch square to use in my afghan. The plan is to do this with the 6 inch pattern each month of the CAL.
My second set of blocks each month will be what I'm calling "Colorful". This yarn is Red Heart with Love in a variety of colors. I'm trying to pick them at random as I'm crocheting so I really don't know how the final blocks will look!
And here is the final 4-patch of the Colorful set. I'll be using white to edge each square of this set and also for joining.
I'm loving making these squares!
