Member Update // Get in the Granny Square Groove
Have you been drawn into all of the fabulous crochet projects being shared everywhere online? From cardigans, scarves and handbags to blankets, pillows and placemats, many of these projects are made with crochet granny squares or granny square variations.
With the video lessons now available, learn to crochet your own at the new Granny Squares course taught by Charlotte Lee! The content will cover starting in rounds, crocheting the basic square pattern, changing colours, and piecing together squares to make larger projects. This course is based on the foundational techniques that were covered in the Crochet Basics course; thus, we won’t go into details for each stitch, we will focus on making granny squares!
With Charlotte’s crochet patterns included, plus help and sharing along the way over in the Community Forums, by the end of the course you will know how to make a granny square as big or small as your heart may wish. The sky’s the limit!
