Granny, Meet the Stripes
I’m sure it’s not new. I’m sure that someone, somewhere, has had the same idea. But yesterday, as I was playing with yarn, I decided to entertain this idea: what would you get if you mixed a “traditional” granny square with the “solid” granny square? The answer is a very cool motif.
I decided to called it “Granny, Meet the Stripes”, because it does create a nice stripey effect. The next step will probably attempt to make an baby afghan out of this (I only need to find out where I should just continue with the pattern - thus creating a 24’ square, for instance - or to make several squares and sew them (oh, the horror) together.
Decide for yourself. Find the pattern here: http://theanarchistknitter.blogspot.pt/2014/02/granny-mee...
(PS: If you want to have a go at the pattern, but don’t really know what to do with the finished square, check out the project “Lily - Love in the Language of Yarn”).
