A Windmill Graph Pattern to Knit or Crochet! I designed this pretty windmill scene while reminiscing about my grandmother’s house filled with little windmill figurines, blue Delft pottery, and yummy spiced cookies. It can be used as a table mat, wall hanging, or even an afghan square. If you add some extra rows it would even make a great decorative hand towel! Best of all, the graph can easily be used for crochet, knit, and Tunisian crochet projects. I can’t wait to see all your pretty windmill projects!
