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.

Crochet is BACK!  It’s cool again and so many people are rediscovering this fun (and addictive) hobby.  We have been having classes in crochet at The Studio and so many people are learning how to crochet.

One of the standards in crochet is the Granny Square.  You can make so many things from squares from blankets to ponchos to hats to sweaters and more.

Here are some samples of traditional granny squares as well as a pattern chart for some “not so traditional” squares ( from Mes Favpros Tricot-Crochet website) that we will be looking at in our next crochet class on April 12th.  Consider joining us.  Click here for more info on the class.  

Of course, one of my favorites is this floral granny square blanket that Big Mama made me many years ago.  I treasure it.
