Sparkle Granny Square Free Pattern!




I just love this traditional granny square fabric! It's worked in half trebles, in rounds from the centre outward and it's perfect for crafters just starting out on their crochet journey. The classic stitch resembles coarse lace and looks so pretty with an added sparkle! Add additional rows to increase the size of your granny square or create multiple small squares and join together for a yummy crochet blanket!

Blush Pink (TK34)

*TIPS*

Always work 3htr groups into next available ch sp unless otherwise stated, not into next st.
