Off-Kilter Granny

At last! The pattern you've all been waiting for. This is my first (and quite probably only) original design. I hope the instructions make sense. If you do find any mistakes please email me.

Off-Kilter Granny
(American notation)

Update 23/6/07 - corrected DK hook size and added mm sizes

WW / H-5mm hook = approx. 7",
DK / G-4.25mm hook = approx. 6"

Special stitch - htr (half-treble):
YO twice, insert hook in stitch indicated. YO, draw through two loops. YO, draw through remaining
3 loops.

    Sus - you're very welcome and thank you.

    Nanabear - Wow, you didn't waste any time! I've had a peek at your square. Thanks for giving it a go - I hope my first attempt at a pattern didn't give you any trouble.

    Vashti - Welcome! I've seen your work and I'm honoured by your attentions. ;-)
