I'd been busy making granny square projects anyway, so why not make something for myself? The thing I love about granny squares -- about all squares, really -- is that you get quick gratification from your efforts. Spend several minutes or an hour crocheting, and you've got something to show for it. And, as I watch the squares accumulate, I know they're going to amount to something really pretty when they're finally sewn together. Progress, progress!
To replicate the scarf above, I made 26 granny squares, each with four rounds. I dug into my leftovers bag and gathered up some bright colors and scraps to use for the first three rounds. Black was my chosen color for the last round because I really wanted to make the other colors stand out. My finished granny square scarf measures about 72 inches or 183 cm. I used medium-weight acrylic yarns and a US J 10/6.00 mm hook.
What do you like to make with granny squares besides blankets?
