Going Granny

I confess. I like granny squares. I know, I know. In my defense, I always strive to keep crochet moving forward. I'm all about "not your grandmother's crochet" crochet.

So, how do you make a granny square fresh & interesting? This was my attempt last year:

This bag was made for my Mom and each square was carefully planned out. Too bad I messed up the square alignment on the sides. Oh well. Only I would really know and it's still pretty.

Here are some ideas I pinned from the interwebs to keep those grannies fashion forward.

How about one big square turned into a purse?

Lots of pretty hex grannies make a fun purse or afghan.

This is a pretty idea. Fancy grannies, each one different, but in a single color yarn. Lovely!
By Mit Hand und Herz

I'm really loving the first & last options. Which one to try first????

Happy Crafting!
