Rose Granny Diamond Halter
G Hook 
Sugar n’ Cream Cotton yarn (I use cotton yarn on cones. I don’t remember how much I used)
Sizing: approx. a size 4

I made this pattern up in Feb. I’m just now getting the pattern written. There might be errors as I haven’t made it since that time. I’m sorry if there are. I hope to make another one for next year, but I haven’t had time.

I made a Rose granny square. I used Maggie Weldon’s pattern from her Afghans in Bloom leaflet. I can’t give this pattern out as it’s not mine and it would be violating copyright laws. So you can use any granny rose square pattern if you would like. My square was approx. 3” square. The rose was in the middle then 2 rows of granny square.

I took my square and from there, I hdc on 2 sides of the square (approx. 11 hdc). I did 3 hdc in the corner. At the end, I ch 1 and turn. 
Row 2 – 23: Hdc across, do 3 hdc in corner stitches. Ch 1 and turn.
Row 24- 29: Sc around the diamond. Do 3 sc in each corner.
I did a 7 dc shell border around. I did leave a blank spot at the top for wear it hits my daughter’s neck. I also used 9 dc in the corners to make it lay right.

I made 2 ties for around the waist. Ch 6, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc across, ch 2 and turn. Repeat for 25 rows. On one strap, sew 3 buttons. On the other side, leave holes for the buttons on Row 14, 17, and 21. Approximately….I hope to write this out better when I make another one and refine the pattern better.

I made 1 tie for around the neck. I used the same concept as the other ties. I put the button on the underside of the diamond at the top. So the strap wraps around the neck and buttons. I found this style comfortable and stylish. It’s easy to get on and off and lays flat on the neck.

I apologize for the roughness of the pattern. I kept thinking I would get back to this and just didn’t. So here it is in rough form…. I want to make Shaelynn a bigger one for next year, so I do hope to write this pattern out better next time.

Little Girl’s Kerchief
I used a H hook and the same cotton yarn.
Ch 4, slip st tog to creat a ring. Ch 3, count this as first dc. Dc 3 more times in ring, ch 2 and dc 4 times and turn. Slip st in between the 1st dc and the 2nd dc, ch 3 and dc 3 more times. 3 dc in corner, ch 2, 3 more dc (this makes the corner). Do 4 dc in between the 3rd and 4th dc from the bottom chain, turn. Follow the granny square pattern…for 11 rows. Then I did a shell edging 7dc with skipping 3 sts sc and skip 3 sts, 7dc…repeat this around the triangle. Ch 50 for straps on either point.
