A few years ago, I designed the Tudor blanket which is a combination of this modern granny square and some other beautifully shaped pyramidal stitches.

I have since also designed a cardigan from this modern granny square pattern and it’s one of my favorite cardigans up to date. This cardigan would be released in a few weeks’ time.
