Aster Granny Square Crochet Pattern

This pattern is a part of the joined project the Friends With Granny Blanket CAL .

A granny square is a popular crochet motif, traditionally made of double crochet blocks and chain stitches, and using several different colors. They are in fact a great way to use up your yarn left over from other projects.

The story goes that women in early America used to save yarn scraps and create small squares out of them. The squares were then assembled into large, colorful blankets called afghans.

Nowadays, they are being used for just about anything you can imagine. Afghans are always popular, of course, but with granny squares you can make cardigans, vests, coasters, dolls, socks and bags.

There are so many different types of granny square and so many different patterns that you simply have to try them out. The beauty of it is, that despite of so many granny squares made out there, you can always create a new and different one.

I loved working on my Aster Granny Square, because I love texture, post stitches and puffs and just had to incorporate those into a granny square.

Granny Square Blanket CAL

Aster Granny Square is a part of the larger project, hosted by two fabulous crochet designers, MadameStitch and Eclaire Makery. They gathered 13 crochet designers to create a beautiful blanket called Friends With Granny Blanket

Each designer created 8” x 8”  granny square using medium worsted yarn, so they can be combined and assembled into a blanket decorated with a beautiful border.
