Granny Square on Steroids

The first granny square was addictive, once I got the hang of simple crochet.  9 inches square (it is supposed to be square, that is, although it looks a bit wobbly around the perimeter):

Whilst watching tv, the little 9 inch square looked up and said "FEED ME".  Really.

So back to the craft closet for odds and ends of yarn, and more crocheting.  It will end up an afghan because it just keeps growing.

It is abour two feet square now and continuing to add girth.  It is eating up wool, acrylic, possum fur, and every blended fiber in my stash. 

Even without vitamins, it is growing like a weed.

The pattern can be found here under Heirloom Stitches.


  1. I love it! Been there. LOL
    Sometimes when you use different ply yarns the square will get a little wonky after washing. That might actually add to it`s unique charm. Good job!


  2. Beautiful granny square!  I love it my friend!  I wish I could make such a pretty!  Have a blessed day my friend!  HUGS!

  3. A great way to use leftover yarns. They always seem to pile up and get entangled. Lovely work!

  4. Love granny squares. I had a couple of vests made with giant granny squares back in the 70's, are they back in style yet?? I might have to try my hand at them again. I love seeing what you have been up to my friend.

  5. Hey! I love your blog! I am a huge fan of granny squares...I'm in the middle of making a blanket out of a bunch of um'. Do you have any advice for attracting attention to a blog. I've had one for several months now, but I can't seem to get any traffic coming to mine! :)) thanks!!


Your comments mean a lot to me. Thank you so much for reading my post, and heaps more hugs and thank you's for leaving a note!
