Nuts About DNA Afghan – Square 101

My 101st Granny Square was the Savannah by Polly Plum.
My plan was just to use, Scheepjes Stonewashed in, Rose Quartz, Corundum Ruby and Garnet but after the first few rounds I felt they blended together a little two much, so I threw Moon Stone into the mix.
In hindsight I wish I had re-made the first few rows as the detail is a little lost.
Lesson learnt that details will be lost using these three colours together especially Corundum Ruby and Garnet.

Colours used per round, were,
Round 1 – Rose Quartz Round 2 – Corundum Ruby
Round 3 – Garnet
Round 4 – Rose Quartz
Round 5 – Moon Stone
Round 6 – Corundum Ruby
Round 7 – Moon Stone
Round 8- Garnet
Round 9 – Rose Quartz
Round 10 – Corundum Ruby
Round 11 – Moon Stone
Round 12 – Garnet
Round 13 – Moon Stone
Round 14 – Rose Quartz
Round 15 – Garnet


I once again had to make modifications for size and stitch count by making 3 extra rounds.

Round 13 – I made Half Double Crochets (hdc) in third loop across and then 2 hdc, chain 2, 2 hdc in corners.
Round 14 – I Back Post Double Crocheted across and made 2 dc, chain 2, 2dc in corners.
Round 15 – I made, 2hdc, chain 2, 2hdc in corners, I missed the hidden stitch and made Back Loop Half Double Crochets (blhdc) across. (44hdc)


After a very soft block, Savannah was ready to add to huge pile of Granny Squares.


The Savannah square was such a easy calming make. The pattern was flawless as always and super easy to follow.
