The Collegiate Throw is a great way to celebrate a recent grad headed off to college! Make it in your school colors using worsted weight yarn and a large hook. A fast project to help celebrate being college bound!

I recognize that the traditional granny square is not my original pattern, but rather a public domain technique in the crochet community. My pattern does, however include special techniques for how to make your granny square super straight and reversible, as well as edging instructions, multiple color sequence ideas, and photo tutorials for special stitches.
