first two granny squares

In my last post I wrote about the Granny Square app by Simply Crochet, in which they are publishing a free granny square pattern each week. The second one came out, so I’ve got pictures of #1 and #2!

Here’s the first week’s square:


And here’s week #2’s square:


As you can see, the first square is just a classic granny square. The second is a variation of the alternative granny instructions I made a while back. The difference is the chains in the corners — I typically use 2 but this pattern calls for 4, so that’s what I did.

The two squares do not have the same number of stitches on each side, nor are they quite the same size, so there will be no joining as I go, but that’s OK. I’m enjoying the squares so far — it’s nice not to be rushed.

Well that’s all for today. I have most of another project finished but I have the finishing touches to make and add on before I share. Thanks for stopping by!

    It might be nice to make a strip of the same squares and then join them with band of crochet similar to your striped cal blanket.


  2. Hi, I would love to follow your blog but didn’t see where to sign up for that. So, I’ll fill in my info below. Thank you. FYI Your design of the As you go blanket is what brought me to your site. Loved it immediately!!
