This granny square is a great pattern for anyone. Whenever I am reading a pattern, I have to make the item to be able to visualize what the author is trying to say. This square is no exception. I will have to give this pattern a try because I have not done much with the bobble stitch previously.

The cathedral Motif Granny crochet square is a great pattern for that beginner who wants to learn crochet and make their first afghan. This pattern is very easy to read and fun to do. You can so the motifs in all one color or two different colors.Definitely an easy crochet pattern for those beginners who want to be challenged.
