Grannies gratuits
When I first learned how to crochet, I fell in love with the granny square. I tend to gravitate more toward quick turn projects, and granny squares can be completed quickly and then pieced together as a project later. Voila… instant gratification. There are many different versions of granny square patterns available on the web, so I put together some of my favorite ones that were free. Some of them aren’t exactly squares, but they would still make a cool afghan so I included them. I hope you enjoy! Have a granny square pattern on your blog?

Grannies gratuits Crocheted granny squares are a hit with crafters since there are so many different items you can make with them: blankets or afghans, scarves, potholders, wraps, totes…the ideas are endless! Here are several different designs to check out, use a single pattern for a project or mix them up as you like. I also added a helpful tutorial at the bottom showing you how to join them all together and another for how to make a flat border (for blankets). You may want to bookmark this page for future reference since I’ll be adding new goodies here as I find them, enjoy!

Crochet: Old Fashioned Potholders If you're looking for a last-minute homemade holiday gift for someone who likes to cook, how about some potholders? I grew up with potholders like this - they'd been crocheted for years by various women in my mother's family. I think some of the potholders we used (and possibly some of the ones I still use) may have even been made by my great-grandmother. The older potholders are typically yellow and white or red and white, but once my sister and I started making them we naturally gravitated to all kinds of colors and even those garish variegated threads. I made the pair above for Bob two Christmases ago and they pretty much follow the pattern of their predecessors - a dark center with a good-sized white middle enclosed by a dark border.

Granny fleur A few weeks ago I was asked about a Granny pattern in English that could only be found in German. So I translated it, thinking that I may crochet it myself one day because it’s a lovely pattern. Later I’ve learnt that the pattern had been modified and gotten a new name due to a charity project in Somalia. Maybe you don’t know much about the crisis at the horn of Africa, maybe you do. Anyway, while I am corcheting these lovely squares on a rainy day, I am thinking about the misery and famine and all the people suffering, especially the women and children. The pattern (in German) is from nadelspiel, where you can get information about this particular project in Somalia.

A Better Granny Rectangle « crochet again Well, I think it is better : ) As I said before, in my other Granny Rectangle post (don’t go there, I think this one is better), I have always been unsatisfied with how the center of granny rectangles line up in the middle, instead of alternating like it does in the rest of the fabric. It seems weaker and is not as pleasing to me, I just don’t like it : ) Don’t know why I didn’t do it this way the first time I got the idea, but at least I thought of it now. For the size I did in the example: Ch 22 Ch 21 (corrected 8-24-13) In the 6th chain from the hook, 3dc. Skip 2 stitches, 3dc in same stitch. Continue across, skipping 2 and doing 3dc in the same stitch.

These are the directions for the blanket I first showed in the Crochet in Progress post, here is a better photo (the colors look a bit washed out, the sun was bright): And a closer look, remember it is posed on a chair, instead of lying flat so the squares look less than square. I’m sure that there are variations of this kind of square out there. Here is another one I did, I really like the off centered square, definately going to make something with these!
