Quick Granny Square Ornament


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 
  • Scissors
  • Ruler (optional)

Tutorial Links:


Instructions:

(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.

Round 3 (green yarn): Work the corner in the same manner as the previous round: chain 4, 2 dc in same space, chain 1, 3 dc in same space, chain 1. To work the sides, simply work 3 dc in the next space then chain 1...repeat until you reach a corner again.

Fasten off.

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!
