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!
Dear YarnYAY! Community & Supporters,
It’s with all of the feels, and a deep breath, that I announce that month’s will be the last monthly box, as we begin the process of closing YarnYAY! by Vickie Howell.
Five and a half years ago, this business essentially fell into my lap. I was just wrapping a tour promoting the launch of The Knit Show, and in the middle of writing my 13th book, The Knit Vibe when an executive from CrateJoy approached me about co-founding a subscription box for knitters. The arm of their company that ran subscription box businesses with creators and entrepreneurs who already had a following would handle the capital, fulfillment, customer service and sourcing. I would be in charge of project design, pattern writing, product curation, marketing, media content, and anything else creative. I had longtime been wanting to add a retail aspect to my overall offerings, but with a very full plate hadn’t yet figured out a viable, responsible way to do that. This seemed ideal.

Have you met her? This is final shade of VH Montoya Merino, Sputnik Spruce, and she’s practically perfect in every way. Hand-dyed by the amazing @spunrightround I could not love this non-traditional, holiday palette more!
Get this limited edition run of Sputnik Spruce in the YarnYAY! December box. Now available at YarnYAY.com (link in bio)!
Ok, reposting the December Unboxing, because it looks like I chose the wrong posting option last time, so only 90 seconds came through. The vid’s 7 minutes, so hopefully this time it works! (It’s posted in full on my Facebook page, YouTube, and YarnYAY.com, too.) Thanks for your patience!...
