granny square sampler afghan- week 5
I didn’t mean for a whole week to go by with no blog posts. But I’m back just in time for this week’s granny square. How are you guys doing on your squares? Is everyone caught up? Overachieving and making more? (That’s okay too!)
Its summer remember? Your pace is your own.
This week, we’re going to do 2 different grannies. Both with a circle in a square shape. I was thinking we definitely needed some of these type of square in our sampler. So without further ado, here is this week’s assignment.
(Find all the assignments listed on this page.)
1. The Granny Square with a Circle Center– Make 4
So, crochet these following the tutorial I made way back when, using and picking colors as your heart desires. Remember, the beauty of a sampler is that you “sample” your color mixes as well as your squares. Try a completely the square solid, or 2-color, or do it as originally written up. You pick.
2. The Squircle V 3– Make 3
I have had the image of this granny square pinned to my crochet pinterest board for a while, I love the simple straightforward look of it. I asked Deb, the creator, if I could include it as one of the squares in our project, and she kindly said yes. Her instructions are very easy to follow, I’ve already made several. (To make the 2 color version, you will change your yarn color before beginning round 4.) I will note that she makes her center circle/beginning circle differently than I do. Give it a try. Just follow her instructions, and you’ll get it quickly.
There are some gorgeous squares showing up in the Flickr Group, and on Instagram (#wisecraftgrannysquareafghan). Thank you to everyone who posted!
As always, any questions on these squares, leave it in the comments.
