Colourful Crosses – Granny Square Variation

I wanted to share my latest project with you – the working name is ‘Colourful Crosses’, and is a Granny Square Variation.

Over the last few weeks I have been working on a bright and colourful project. I needed something relatively portable to be able to take the project on my summer holiday. The colours are a mix of reds, pinks, oranges and yellows and are wonderfully uplifting.

Granny Squares are so addictive, and this variation was so aesthetically pleasing. The squares are worked in 3 colours in 3 different stages.

The first stage produces some beautiful little sweetie-like squares.

The second stage:

The third stage adds a little twist – some crossed stitches:

The best thing about these squares is that they turn out wonderfully ‘square’ and they are completely reversible.

I have decided to join the squares by sewing them, and am so pleased with how it works up so neat and still completely reversible. Not quite finished doing yet, and then on to a border.

Full pattern is to follow shortly.

Crochet Patchwork Squares

I have been so desperate to make a crochet blanket made up of different blocks of colour, but a design that does not involve individual squares or Granny Squares.

I am so happy that I have finally worked this out, and have come up with this crochet patchwork squares design. Here is a little taster of what I have achieved so far.

The free pattern is now available here.
