A granny square is like a plain sheet of paper. Sure, it comes in different colors, textures, sizes and weights however in and of itself, it’s not very exciting until you use it as an integral part of your creative process. During our two hour class we will explore the basic structure of a granny square as we make one traditional style square using a basic worsted weight wool. Our second square will not be a square at all, we’ll step it up as a more interesting polygon. You will leave the class with a new respect for the humble Granny square and how to bring it to life in your crochet journey.
