My new favorite granny square is a cool, modern and very simple pattern. I found it on every crafty girl's best friend and worst enemy, Pinterest.
The squares go together quickly and combine to make an amazing blanket. Crochet on an edging and make and afghan, or sew a flannel panel on the back and bind the edges into a quilt like I did. It is great for a baby blanket or full scale cover. Make all the circles one color or each a different color to use up scraps. The possibilities are endless!
Want to make your own? Check out the square tutorial from Three Beans in a Pod. Then check back here tomorrow (or the next day, I might be lazy) for my simple tutorial on adding flannel backing and binding!
