So, I Mastered the Granny Square- NOW WHAT?

Posted on Updated on

If you remember last week, my first few attempts at the granny “square” turned out to be more of a granny “trapezoid”.

When I asked the great google why my square turned into a trapezoid, the first article that popped up was ‘Five Common Crochet Mistakes and Tips for Beginners’. PERFECT. Not only did it answer why my shape was mixed up, it also helped me with 4 other problems I didn’t even realize I had!  For each problem she gave a few suggestions on what you may be doing wrong, and gave you a few suggestions that might fix it! I found that adding too many stitches, and having my stitches go from being too loose to too tight, were my two main problems- and they were both addressed in this article.

Ladies & gentlemen, thanks to the wonderful crafting website ‘Felt Magnet,’  I am proud to show you my first, successful granny square!

WOO! I must say that having something to do while I binge watch Netflix makes the hours spent on the couch seem much more productive.

My next goal is to learn how to read a pattern, and use this to crochet something other than a square!

If any of you have any ideas on a simple item I could try, leave a comment- I am looking for ideas!

    As a person learning how to crochet, it definitely is not an easy task! I am currently working on a pillow cover that may be of interest to you, check it out and let me know what you think.

      That turned out so cute, way to go! I am excited to see what you come up with next. You could also try crocheting a mitt for a cup! Just an idea 🙂 Here is a link for an example of what it could look like! http://tiny.cc/0ytriy
