Granny Square Day - My Favorite Crochet Style
Granny Square Day
I didn't realize it was Granny Square Day until I saw a friend post about it on Instagram.
In fact, I didn't realize granny square day was even a thing! I'm excited that it is, though, because it's one of my favorite styles to crochet.
What is a Granny Square?
Basically, a granny square is any square piece of crochet work produced by working outward from a central circle. There is any number of designs you can make with them, and some are incredibly intricate, resembling flowers, mandalas, or lace (look it up on Pinterest if you're curious - but be prepared to fall down a creative rabbit hole!).
Granny Squares Are My Favorite Crochet Style
Personally, I use the granny square style all the time in my crochet work. The majority of my Critter Crafting Cat mats are made with this style (just larger versions of them), and a number of my coaster sets are granny squares in a super traditional sense.
When I make large blankets, they're often made up of granny squares, whether of a solid color or different colors.
