easy granny squares

granny square crochet easy yarn

 It was a cold and rainy day here in Greece, not what you would normally expect at this time of the year....sort of a winter touch in the heart of summer...but they say that things will get back to normal in a day or two. So i tried my best to stay inside....doing my housekeeping stuff and cooking for our little family...and of course i did some crocheting to keep me entertained...

I started making little granny squares...following a very easy pattern and using one colour for each one of thinking of sewing them together for a cute cushion instead of making another blanket....i already have two and i wont be using them for the next 4 i have plenty of time if i decide to crochet another one...also its a nice brake from crocheting toys...i don't want to get bored by doing the same stuff again and again...

As you can see the squares are pretty small but super cute and easy to make even for a beginner. Unfortunately i cant remember which blog i got the pattern from...i so want to give you the link...i have it written though if you want it.
I take it that you can read it from the photo (lazy me) so im not gonna copy just giving you what you cant see in the photo...

  1. I love making granny squares because they don't require much concentration.

  2. Nice granny squares Peli! Maybe I'll try making them, following your pattern!

  3. I love granny squares because they work up so quickly. For years I couldn't even figure out how to do the granny square because there are written patterns out there that make things much more difficult than necessary. Then I found a pattern on Tangled Happy and boy was it ever easy. Your colorful squares look great. Tammy
