Nuts About DNA Afghan – Square 107 – Gwendolyn

Gwendolyn is my 107th square, for my  Mums “Nuts about DNA Afghan”

Gwendolyn is a beautiful square by Polly Plum of Every trick on the hook.
Polly’s designs the most amazing squares and blankets, she has been one of my all time favourite designers since I first started to crochet.
Her patterns are exceptionally well written and presented. They are one of a kind truly. You really can’t fault them.
Gwendolyn is up there with the best of them, easy to follow, well explained, with loads of photos to help you along the way.


It’s beyond gorgeous and looks amazing in every colour combo I’ve seen.

Gwendolyn would look absolutely stunning as a stand-alone Afghan or mixed up with any of Polly’s other breathtaking squares, edged with one of her breathtaking borders, I Wish You Love or her Moss Stitch Border.

Or you could make it in to a bag, a scarf, a bed runner, table runner, a wall hanging, anything your heart desires.


For my Gwendolyn I used the following colour order in my all time favourite yarn, Scheepjes Stone Washed, which I purchased from Wool Warehouse and Lusciously Loopy Yarn. 🧶
