Plantation Pillowghan Square

Image of Plantation Pillowghan Square Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This pillowghan square starts off as rows, such as a plantation would be planted, then ends up in rounds like the road around a plantation! It is fun and easy to make and would make a great take along project. Imagine making this with scraps of yarn using 2 colors per square.
