“Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s Day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.”

~William Shakespeare

I made this little crocheted throw blanket for my daughter Gracie. I used my favorite Boye crochet hook (F/5-3.75MM) and Caron “Simply Soft” yarn in the following colors: Watermelon, Coconut, Pistachio, Blueberry and Blush. The body of the throw is a simple, consecutive granny square.  The border is done in the fan stitch. The flowers are small roses, the leaves are free-form, and the centers of each of the flowers are pearl shank-style buttons.

Please share your latest creations with me!
