So that’s the confession:: I learn to crochet because I want to create my own granny squares blanket!
Granny squares are easy for beginners (like me) to learn, but at the same time, versatile and always intriguing. If you're new to crochet, the granny square is a fantastic first project:: it’s gorgeous to select your colour combination and it’s easy to fix your mistake before assembling the blanket.
At the beginning, I consider to use the traditional pattern but searching around the web I was amazed by endless possibility of square shape - just check out Barbara's 'Beyond the squares challenge'-. After all I was inspired and completely fascinated by the “summer garden granny squares “ I’d seen made by Lucy of Attic24.
