Helen Squares Pullover is a happy and cozy crochet pattern named after my great-grandmother. My great-grandmother was named Helen, and she taught me how to crochet, so instead of granny squares, I make Helen Squares! Ok, I actually called her Grandma Clark (her last name), but I always loved her first name. She was as beautiful as anyone named Helen should be, and she was amazing, strong, smart, and so loving. Enjoy your Helen Squares Pullover, may it bring you some of the happiness my great-grandmother brought me.
The yarn for this design was provided by Bluprint. All opinions are my own.
