“So happy to share an updated version of my popular pattern for the Mitred Granny Square (or Optical Illusion Square as some of my subscribers have described it). I first published this pattern on my blog in February 2013 after coming up with the design for this square while planning a blanket for my teenage son. I wanted the blanket to have the feel of a granny square blanket but the look needed to have a more modern take on the traditional look to suit him. The square pattern I envisaged using also needed to be easy for crocheting while watching television. With a bit of fiddling about and some experimenting my Mitred Granny Square evolved. I’m really pleased with the shading or optical illusion this square gives to the completed blanket. So if you have an empty hook and some yarn looking for a project, then this could be the one for you. I hope you enjoy using it as much as I do.”
