My new elegant granny squares

After a recent month long illness, I wanted to crochet again. I decided on something small, just to be able to create something after the long absence.

For some reason, I decided to make some fancy granny squares. I don’t like the traditional granny square but these are fun. I ended up making six different patterns. I had them tested, and have published four of my grannies. I am getting the last two patterns ready to publish.

I made a beautiful baby / lap blanket out of 12 squares. Now I’m contemplating using some of the squares to make a poncho. They would make wonderful pillows covers. They would make a beautiful shawl I think. Squares are so versatile! So here are the ones that I have published.

When I have the time, I will be putting them in Ravelry as well. Here’s a picture of the finished baby blanket.
