Granny Square

Once you know how to crochet the Granny Square it is easy peazy lemon squezy. It is the most universal pattern for you can make so many things out of it.

You can make slippers, pillows, table cloths, blankets, rugs and even toys with this simple pattern!

All you need is just a little of fantasy and wonderful items can be born from your crafty hands! 🙂

Today I will show you how to make a gift bag from granny squares.

First of all, I will choose my thread and appropriate size hook. I love firm crochet items, therefore I often tend to choose smaller hooks. Nonetheless, you can choose any type of hook you want and the result will be the same.

Further on, my bag will need 14 granny squares. That adds up to 4 for the front and back, 2 for each sides and the bottom.

The granny square will be done with 4 rows.

Whenever, I crochet with the squares I attach them to one another straight away. This saves time as you do not need to sow it later on. If you wish to find out how I do that, please do let me know in the comments below, I will be more than happy to show, explain and even make another blog post about it! 🙂

Once all the squares are done, all is left to do is sew the bag and make the handles. However, for the handles you can use a simple sash or a tassel. Also, you can add as many accessories to your bag as you wish. As you can see that is exactly what I have done! 🙂

I do hope you will love the technique and the squares you will make. Nonetheless, best of luck and if you have any questions drop us a comment below, message us on Facebook and we will figure it out together! 🙂

With love,
