Modular and Modern!

Even newbie crocheters (as are many of us who come over from knitting) love the ease and fun of granny squares - the sets of 3 double-crochets that make up the clusters are rhythmic to do, and build up fabric so fast - must be why we love doing granny squares as quick and satisfying baby blankets and afghans.

But it’s hard to wear a square, so we wondered if it were possible to pull a square out long to make a rectangle. Sure enough, you can! Make one rectangle and seam the short ends and it makes a pretty cowl; make two and seam once to make a scarf or seam twice to make a loop - that makes this thoroughly modular and thoroughly modern!

Cowl: Approx. 25”/63.5cm around x 7”/18cm deep, after blocking.
Loop/Scarf: Approx. 49”/124.5cm long/around x 6”/15cm deep, after blocking.

Approx. 5½ 3dc clusters = 4”/10cm, after blocking.
