When we think of Granny… Squares we think of the old-timey style that we saw at out grandparents homes…multiple colors…generally bordered with black or cream.  They still hold up today.  I love the traditional look of them…but there is more that can be done with the granny square stitch than just a square.  At our class on November 6th we will learn to make the traditional Granny Square but we will also learn how to apply that stitch to a Granny Stripe, a Granny Scarf, and even more.  Click here to register and join us to learn how.

20180102_134925530972130.jpgI posted a photo of Brother’s family dog Duffy last week and the sweater I made for him.  Debbie sent me this new photo of him this  morning walking in the cold weather sporting his new attire.  Isn’t he CUTE?!  That reminded me to post the pattern.  I wrote this several years ago after I post photos of Lincoln wearing one I had made up for him.  If you crochet this will give you an idea of how to go about it.  You may have to make alterations in order for it to fit your dog but it’s a start.  The link here will take you to the pattern.
