Granny Squares and their Uses

I do love Granny Squares. Their “squareness” always surprises me. Their colour range is endless and most crocheters keep their first wobbly attempt at making one. However their versatility is underplayed.

Just a quick scoot around my normal knitty haunts throws up these wonderful ideas:


Granny square Bookmark

childrens room decoration

Granny Squares for childrens’ bedrooms


Granny square coasters – pretty!


Granny square cushions

evening wear

Granny square evening jacket – yes, they ARE granny squares!


Granny square Fashion


Granny square gloves


Granny squares holdall


Granny square shawl


Granny square make up tidy


Granny square toy

All beautiful and there are so many more. Obviously throws and blankets, but also arm-warmers, head-bands, teacosies, bunting, iPhone covers, bibs, hats, slippers… With a little imagination and adaptation there may be no need to learn any other skill!

What’s your favourite use for Granny Squares?

    That wraparound cardigan is amazing!! I love it. Granny squares are my go to thing. They are so simple and quick. The tetris blanket I made for Chris is probably one of my favourites. Our Sidekick has requested a Captain America shield/blanket which is 3 colours but would be circular rather than granny squares or a 8-bit Super Mario which is a little easier as it’s all squares.
