I like to crochet.. a lot! Even in the most unusual of places. I always keep a ball of yarn and hook in my bag, because you just never know when you might need them.. right?

The trouble is finding the perfect project for those on the go moments. You need something easy to remember so you are not lugging around a pattern book, some quick so you don’t forget where you are and something small to fit in your everyday handbag.
So the perfect solution was .. Yes the Solid Granny Square. Quick and easy and you can do them anywhere.. Doctors appointments, On the metro, At the park, On your lunch break even at the kids football practice 🙂
Disappointing! I can hear you sighs, but wait its what you can do with a good ole solid granny that makes it all worth while.
I have a love for patchwork quilting but can not sew for the life of me. However; using the granny square as a patch you can almost recreate anything.
I set myself to the task of creating some patchwork style graphs and had a blast. I came up with a total of 5 designs.. did the math and set me and my testers to work.
I will be sharing each design over the next couple of weeks, with a full “how to”, yarn amounts, charts and colors.
