Welcome to the Ultimate Granny Square Roundup!


Ever heard of Granny Square Appreciation Day?

Did you know that August 15th 2020 is Granny Square Appreciation Day? It was new to me too! But I just knew that I had to do something to mark the day. So I got in touch with some designer friends and asked them if I could share their granny square patterns with you!

Granny squares were used a lot even a generation ago, but there wasn’t much different about them. When you think of a traditional granny square do you automatically think of this type?


They are great when you are learning to crochet. I used this type of square to inspire a traditional shawl for my daughter for Victorian Day at school back in September.


Times have Changed

But times have changed. These squares have seen a resurgence in recent years – and they are so pretty and modern looking! Lots of them are just simply stunning. And they are a great way to practice your stitches.


Shall we dive right in and check out some fantastic patterns?
