While these love-it-or-hate-it little squares have most likely been around since the dawn of crochet (Because what else do you do with your scraps?), examples have be found as early as 1891 in publications like Butterick’s The Art of Crochet.
To make your own “Hipper” Granny Crochet Pillow with the Vickie Howell for MAD|TOSH TML, choose 5 colors and get 2 unicorn tails of each five colors. (You’ll need approximately 450 yards.)
TUNE IN FOR MORE GRANNY SQUARES
Don’t forget to tune in on Monday, May 24th at 12pmCT to Vickie’s weekly Facebook Live show, Ask Me Monday. During this episode she’ll continue the granny square love, by showing how to crochet a small project!
I. Am. Thrilled to announce the launch of an ongoing YarnYAY! project to celebrate and support local music, the 𝗕𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗕𝗼𝘅! Each box will cater to knitters and crocheters while featuring and benefiting a different musical artist, beginning with Vickie’s new, favorite local band, @urbanheatband
Whether you love music, can’t say no to hand-dyed yarn and a great, slouchy beanie, or just like the idea of supporting both a small business and an indie band, the 𝙇𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙀𝙙𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝘽𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝘽𝙤𝙭: 𝙐𝙧𝙗𝙖𝙣 𝙃𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙀𝙙𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 is for you!
