Granny Squares….

Once you get to grips with crochet your life changes…. in a good way but it can get quite obsessive, it’s ideal for taking on journeys and if you do take it out & about you need a little bag! (no plastic bags here!)
I recently bought these little balls yarn of yarn from Flying Tiger for only £1 each . Well, obviously I should have bought more because the colours are lovely! (you may notice that the colours I have used are not shown here, afraid I didn’t think to take a pic in my excitement to get started).
I was having a lovely day with my daughter who was also learning crochet and as we were chatting whilst crocheting I felt I needed to do something I could (almost) do without looking or thinking.
So I started granny squares with one row per shade of colour.
(I’ve attached a YouTube link, if you don’t like this tutorial just click on another – there are millions to chose from and some are much easier to follow than others)
I liked the look of my squares but the lovely yarn wasn’t going to make a bedspread, and so I decided to sew four together, create an envelope and use to carry my latest project around.

I lined the ‘bag’ with felt to prevent my hook and mini scissors falling through the gaps.
Here’s how I made this little make…


This is the four squares sewn together and folded in.


I lined with felt and attached a button, the corner loop becomes the buttonhole.

Thanks for reading,
back soon,
love Rosie
