If you love crocheting, then you must love granny squares! They are so versatile and flexible. Granny Square is actually a kind of patch-working in crochet where we can literally put any color combinations we like to make it a square and patch them together to form a project.
They are traditionally handmade. Although there is no theoretical limit to the maximum size of a granny square, crocheters usually create multiple small squares, called “motifs,” and assemble the pieces to make clothing, purses, Afghan blankets, and other household textiles.
The granny square first became extremely popular in the 1970s and has remained crocheters’ favorite ever since. This is mostly because granny squares are easy to be made and even beginners can successfully crochet them.
