To me there is nothing more elegant than the traditional granny square - it’s iconic for a reason! It’s probably the first thing I was taught how to make and I still love how it looks. I completely didn’t invent this pattern but this is my twist on the timeless classic.

Multi-colour granny squares are a great way to use up small amounts of yarn left over from other projects and the basic granny square motif does not require advanced skills to execute.
