Welcome to another Surfin’ Sunday! I have been looking for granny square patterns this week. In particular, something fun, funky, unique and different than the plain jane square we all recognize. Here are a few I really liked.
1. Sunburst Granny–there are a few places to find this lovely circle inside a square. First up is nittybits who has a wonderful written tutorial with picutres. Look at the gorgeous colors! Didn’t she do an amazing job!?!
Bella Coco has a Youtube tutorial, for those who prefer to watch a video, using nittybits pattern. Bella uses UK terminology, but mentions US versions as well. If you want just US tutorial then try Wooly Wonders Crochet on Youtube. Priscilla’s Crochet also has a version of the Sunburst Granny that would make a wonderful afghan. I started one yesterday, and I love how it looks so far. It works up quickly. I made one change which was to do a magic circle with the double crochets in the center.
2. Patroon Granny Square–Yes, this blog is in a foreign language, but the photos are clear and you can translate it. I love this square! It is colorful and I love the loops inside. There are other gorgeous and free square patterns on this webpage so be sure to look them over.
3. Starflower Hexagon by Julie Mnemosyne is a stunning square! You can get this free pattern on her Ravelry page. This is on my top 5 to try list. Love it!
5. Celtic Knot Square looks amazing and I wonder how difficult it is to create.
So there you go, lot’s of atypical granny squares to get you started!
