Crochet Modern Granny Square pattern - The Crafty Co

 Modern Granny Square Tutorial

There is nothing better than receiving a handmade gift from someone and especially something that has been created from an old tradition.

Crochet is a wonderful art and once you have mastered it, you can make the most amazing creations.  A relaxing hobby that can be taken anywhere and it's something that can bring young and old together. Gone are the days when it was something that only granny did, sitting next to Grandpa with his pipe and slippers. It's a growing hobby among all generations, with crochet clubs, crochet along groups and people standing up against the stigma that wearing something handmade used to hold.

The Granny square has been around for many years and comes in all designs and sizes.
Here is a tutorial for a modern day square. At first glance, it appears as a normal granny square, but has a modern twist in the fact that the rows mirror each other giving a fab effect.

The instructions are easy follow and would be great for beginners.

You can either work lots of smaller squares and join them together, or create one large square, although the danger is, once you start this design, we fear you may keep going and going.

Keep an eye on our you tube channel, as we are working on making a rectangle blanket in this stitch.  The more advance crocheters out there will work out how it's done, but for those just starting out, it will be the perfect way to learn how to make a rectangle, it certainly saves joining all those squares together.

At The Crafty Co, we love seeing your creations, from our designs, so please tag us and link back here
