The Design

“Nostalgic, modern and cheerful!”

The beloved granny square is the perfect excuse to play with color. Traditionally crocheters used this rustic pattern to use up bits of leftover yarn, however we love it in the super-soft Manos del Uruguay kettle-dyed merino Maxima. This plump and lush single ply worsted weight adds such a richness of color. And the firm nature of the granny square pattern adds twist to this unplied yarn. New crocheters love the ease and fun of one big squarestarting in the center and working their way outward, round and round. Experts return with newfound joy to the simplicity of this favorite.

Pick up a copy of the pattern and the yarn below. One seven skein colorway set yields a cozy 40"/102 cm square throw (shown). For the afghan size, order 2 colorway sets.
