One of the things that we love about Granny Square Day is the international appeal that it has – we love seeing squares being posted from all over the world! If you’re in Italy (or fancy treating yourself to a holiday) then you simply must check out this amazing opportunity! You can join Simply Crochet designer Kate Alinari and a guide on Walking Wool, a Florence guided tour for yarn lovers! You’ll discover hidden gems and legends of Medici town, visit one of oldest yarn shops in downtown, and of course there’ll be a bit of time for knitting or crocheting with those breathtaking views too!

For English speakers Kate is offering a 20% off discount for those who book onto the Walking Wool experience on Airbnb between 14th and 16th of August.
Kate’s also released a free C2C square pattern depicting the Brunelleschi Dome in Florence. You can find her post and C2C chart here!
