This year, take a moment to crochet some wonderfully winter themed granny squares as the weather gets cooler. There are so many wonderful uses for granny squares and it’s great to try a new pattern besides just the basic granny square.
Christmas Crochet Squares
It may be too soon to start wishing people a “Merry Christmas!” but it’s never too early to start crocheting Christmas themed granny squares. Crochet a granny square afghan for your kids or grandkids by combining different Christmas squares together. My personal favorite is the Holiday Applique Granny Square which features a snowman and Christmas tree applique. You could create a layout of granny squares so that the snowmans and trees were spaced out every few granny squares. There are just so many possibilities with these holiday themed granny squares!
Winter Wonderland Squares
One of the most magical aspects of the holiday season is the beautiful winter snow. Yes, snow is a pain to drive in, travel in, walk in…but if you take a moment to really appreciate the beauty of the season, you’ll find that there are many things to love. Fresh snow on the hillside, dangling icicles glistening in the winter sun, and that familiar crisp air. How can one capture so much wintery goodness in crochet? It’s not as hard as you may think. With these special granny squares, you’ll be able to celebrate the winter season by whipping up a winter granny square afghan.
Delicious Granny Squares
Have I ever mentioned how much I love coffee or hot chocolate on a cold day? It’s the perfect way to cheer anyone up. I love these two squares because even though you can make an afghan with them, you can also use them as coasters. Make a set for your drink loving friend and I’m sure she’ll love to use her Peppermint Mocha Square coaster with her mug full of peppermint mocha.
