The first thing that comes to mind when you think of starting crochet granny square projects is a granny square blanket. Am I right, or am I right? Well, granny squares aren’t just for blankets. There are tones of uses to put them into use. From crochet blankets (yeah, you’ll find those here) to cute little pouches, you’ll find something to pique your interest.

About these granny square projects
This year, I’m taking part in The 100 Day Project. Crochet motifs are so simple and therapeutic. Moreover, for someone like me who struggles with low attention span or is simply too busy to sit down and crochet a big piece, these squares are a life saver. Because of this, I decided to do my project on 100 Days of Crochet Granny Square Projects.
In this post, you’ll learn what to do with your granny squares. I’ll be adding more patterns, tutorials and projects to this blog post. The full list won’t be finished until the 100 days are up. First off, some important links to all the beloved granny squares I’ll be using. Although granny squares are traditionally square in shape, there are many variations on the granny square, some of which I’ll be using for this project.
Crochet granny square patterns
I know you want to get started on these unique crochet granny square projects right away. But first, here are some of my favorite granny square patterns from the site:
How do you join the granny squares together?
It will all depend on the project. Joining crochet granny squares can be just as creative as crocheting them. To add to that, the join you choose for finishing projects makes a huge difference in the way your items end up looking. For example, you could choose a textured join or a flatter join, a decorative join or one that nearly disappears into the work. Each option has an entirely different effect.
What type of yarn will I use?
In picking out the right yarn, it’s essential that the proper kind be chosen. Using up your leftover yarn is not simply a great method to become organized, but it’s also a great money saving solution. Most of my projects will feature DK (Double Knit) yarn because it’s the one I have most of. However, I have a few pieces of mason twine, cotton yarn and even polyester (bag) yarn that I can’t wait to make use of.
