No, not that granny!! This one!!
My local Knit Crochet Bible Study is working on granny squares this summer. We plan to get together in the fall and sew them into blankets, scarves, slippers, etc for local Social Services.
I got started on some squares from my stash. I used 3 different colors. They blended well together with a fourth color.
But as I completed several squares I found I did not have enough to complete a good sized afghan, so I searched my local WalMart, JoAnnâ€™s and Hobby Lobby. One color still remain unavailable.
So I finished off by making several rows of border around all the squares I had completed. Here is the finished project.
If youâ€™d like to learn how to crochet a granny square, check out the video in my previous post.

Your afghan is very attractive. I love the colors and your method of constructing it with contrasting colors. Well done! Susan

How do you make slippers out of granny squares? Is there a pattern?
I’ve found a lot of ways to use granny squares since we started the project. Here is one link to show making slippers with granny squares: http://www.purlbee.com/granny-square-slippers/
I will make a list of several online patterns and offer up links to some patterns.
I am actually almost hyperventilating over that afghan!! Purple is my FAVORITE! Will be downloading the pattern to add to my “To-Do” stack shortly! 🙂
I sooo want to make an afghan where no two square are alike but similar in design of color, that is, light, darker, bright (just for example of rows) followed by border of black or similar attractive choice. Using the same yarn type.
Is this called Jacob’s coat of many colors granny square afghan?? I have seen this rarely. My Granny Murphy made one and I assume it is still in a cedar chest in her home where my aunt now lives. Maybe one day I will find it and use it. I hope so.
At any rate, I am trying to motivate myself to keep on this project long enough to one day finish it!
Currently making toddler afghans out of Bernat Satin yarn for three separate toddlers. Maybe they’ll get them for Christmas…..I hope! I will post pics when they’re finished.
love your posts, links and uplifting….God bless you all today.
very beautiful job/work, I do this a lot myself,
