Edging Granny Squares

Have you been wondering what I did with those pink crochet granny squares?

I kept making more until I had nine of each square style. I ended up making four different styles but had only made three when I took these pictures.

3 granny square variations

Making nine of each would mean I could join them into larger 3x3 squares.

Once they were all finished I used a smaller crochet hook to secure all the loose ends.

Then snipped off any excess.

I added a sweet little white edge to 2 sets of the squares.

It was very simple edging: single crochet, 3 chain, single crochet.

The edging really made a difference don't you think?



Next time I'll show you how the joining went. Do you have a favourite joining method?

    1. I thought I would have the post up by now showing what I made with them. I had planned to get it up the very next day but it hasn't worked out that way. I guess you'll just have to wait and see ;)

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this on Happiness is Homemade! I love to crochet, and granny squares are my favourite way to use up odds and ends of wool. I love the edging and can't wait to see how you put it all together!-Sue
