Granny Square Sampler Project- Week 4

Granny Square Sampler
(Find all the assignments listed on this page.)
I’m calling this week’s granny square a “V Variation”. (It’s only week 4 and I’m already out of names, I know!) There is a version of this square in the original afghan that inspired this project, which didn’t make any sense to me, so I created this pattern which makes more sense and will hopefully make sense to you. It’s a little more open than last week’s square, but similar to the traditional grannies in week’s 1 and 2. I explain a little in the videos, but there is a “V” effect with the stitch patterning in rounds 3 and 4.
Use a different color for each round of this week’s squares. I made mine totally different from each other, as you can see. I want to throw some totally random colors in my sampler in certain spots, so at times I pull out a bright citrusy orange and get crazy. I divided the videos by round, so there’s several of them.
