Great granny!

Hi friends, I thought I'd share a bit more about granny squares following yesterday's post. Here's another blanket by Sandra Juto, similar to the one from yesterday. I just love it.

I thought that finding a pattern might make for an easy blog post, so off I went a-searching... ...and phew, what a lot of patterns there are out there! This is just a tiny selection of the granny square resources out there:

- Canadian Living has your back: these basic granny square afghan directions will get you started. - Over at the Purl Bee, they've got a great crochet primer, plus directions for making granny squares (with lots of pictures, which is great!) and a Babette Blanket how-to (the Babette is on my wishlist, too! - The granny squares flickr pool will have you plotting a day off work just to look at all the photos. - This looks like a good resource book if you're looking to try granny circles: Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs: 150 Circles, Triangles, Hexagons and Other Unexpected Shapes What's your favourite granny square (or circle!) pattern, and where can we find it? Have you got a good book or website to recommend? Leave it in the comments! PS Don't forget to enter this week's giveaway.
