    Thank you Sue and Alhana!
    You're right, I can't post here, but I can comment! now,the squares. The round one is just that, a circle in a square, the freeform is, well, I just went a bit crazy there! And the other four are the African flowers pattern found in Elizabeth Cat's gallery in flickr, but modified, they have eight petals instead of six, so you can make a square nicely. I'll try and write how I made this when I find out how you say when you yarn over twice, is it triple treble? Or I just made that up? I get a bit confused with these terms in english, sorry about that! Well, chat soon
    Love Pilar
