Here is my first Granny throw, and certainly not the last one as I have another big batch of Granny Squares of the same colors, ready to seam for another blanket. I’m happy I found a good use for those leftovers. Blue is not my favourite colors, and doesn’t inspire me much, most of the time. Granny Squares were definitely the best way to get rid of them 😀
I crocheted DK yarn with a 4mm hook, wool, acrylic, and blends.
This throw will keep my Grandma’s knees warm at Winter.
Granny inspiration: this beautiful handbag can be crocheted in any color to fit any style.
You’ll need 150 gr of a main color, and 50 gr of 2 contrasting colors. The Grey bag has been crocheted with 4.5mm hook (40cm x 29cm), the Green one with a 4.00mm (34cm x 24cm)

I love Granny Squares, we can just use them for any purpose. They make beautiful blankets and throws, but they also make fantastic gloves or mittens. Here are the last ones. The Purple/Mustard Wheel of Fortune one is made of Merino. The other pair is a mix of wool, mohair and acrylic. I welcome all your comments !
How beautiful granny squares can make a fantastic scarf looking like a soft porcelain. This one has been made mostly with the quality “Rare essentials” from the Rare Yarns Company (it’s about Alpaca, mohair, silk and superfine merino, Yum !) Soft and cozy…
I had that hank of craft wool of a beautiful green which I did not too much know how to use.
The solution came from a granny square once again. A bit of pink in the center to form a flower, and juggle with the nuances of green all around to give the feeling of a garden.
A butterfly and a ladybird come to decorate the mittens and because we want to make it chic, there is a flake of 12 Swarovski crystal beads in the center of both flower. We should not hesitate to indulge ourselves sometimes!
It started with a beautiful symetric granny square. A bit of beige and light brown, with a hint of rust and dark green for the contrast. The wrist is formed by crossed triple crochet, that I shall have to explain to you soon. The light brown thread is the Zhivago from Patons, It is a pleasure to work it, it is very soft and slightly satiny.
