I just can't get enough Granny Squares...they are perfect anytime of year, but a classic square crocheted in holiday colors are among my most favorite decorations and give my home a cozy, nostalgic feel. Here is an easy peasy Granny Square that you can hang on a tree or even put on top of a present to give the recipient a special keepsake too!
I've included both a full video tutorial and also the written pattern below...happy holiday stitching!
Here's what you'll need:
- Worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in "Cherry Red" "Hunter Green" and "White")
- Tapestry needle
- 5.5 mm crochet hook
- Ruler (optional)
(Begin with red yarn) ch 4, join into a ring with a slip stitch.
Round 1 (red yarn): Chain 4, work (3 dc into center of ring, chain 1) 3 times, then 2 dc into center of ring. Join to close with a slip stitch.
Round 2 (white yarn): To work the corner of round 2, first chain 4, then 2 dc in same space, then chain 1, then 3 dc in the same space. Ch 1, then work the next corner by working 3 dc in next space, chain 1, then 3 dc in same space, chain 1, repeat two more times to complete the round.
Finishing & Assembly: Weave in any ends that remain Using all three strands (red, white, green), cut to about 12 inches or so. Make a loop and tie with a pretty bow. If using as an ornament, you'll just need a smaller sized loop. All finished!
*A note about making multicolored rounds:
To begin a new round in a new/different color, cut yarn, leaving a tail, and fasten it with a slip stitch. Join the new yarn at one of the corners as shown and tie securely.
Happy crocheting lovelies!
