This adorable scarf came together while my lovely little ladies were taking their afternoon naps one weekend. It’s the perfect project for when you have a limited amount of time to yourself. Plus, there’s just something about crocheting granny squares on such a mammoth scale. Not only are they quick and easy to make, they just look so darned awesome, AND it makes a basic crocheter feel like she can crochet. This scarf is also a showpiece for a very special, very large button, so have fun with it!
