ON THE VLOG // This week, I’m still in the midst of cleaning up all my old projects I’ve been working on – kind of clearing the deck so I can get started fresh for the new year.⁠

I have recently finished making a crochet granny square (… a giant granny square), and so on today’s Taking Back Friday episode, I want to show you the basic step-by-step of how to crochet a granny square! If you’re interested in learning more about crochet, I really encourage you to also check out the Crochet Basics course over at the schoolofsweetgeorgia. Charlotte Lee charlotte_milkteacup has put together a comprehensive class including everything you know to get started.
