I am working a project to be shared over at The Stitchin Mommy, and have shared this here as part of that project. This is a fun little square that can be used in many ways from embellishing, to pixel projects, to jewelry, to larger things like scarves and blankets, to name a few.
The reason why I chose to work my Bi-Colored Solid Granny in this manner, as opposed to others you may have seen, is because I hate fastening off, restarting and weaving in a bunch of ends. I came up with this way of working it to avoid that as much as possible. You will still have 6 ends to weave in.
Included is a Photo Tutorial, followed by just Instructions just in case it’s easier to read it first.


  • Small Amount of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in Dark Green and Ivory
  • J10/6mm Hook
  • Tapestry Needle

Material Alternatives:
Some alternatives to I Love This Yarn include Red Heart’s With Love, JoAnn’s Big Twist, but with this tutorial, you can use any weight yarn and matching hook.

Time Spent:
Each square took me about 6 minutes to work up.

DC - Double
