Granny Square & Cozy Bear

square & bear

Hi Friends,

Here is a project I am working on for my son.  The plan is to make 4 of these large granny squares and crochet them together to make a lap size afghan.  It was originally going to be for a baby shower gift, but I wasn’t real happy with the colors {not knowing if it was a girl or boy} so I chose a different palette.  Hearing this, my son piped up and said that he really liked this one.  Music to my ears!  So, now I need to get going on it again so he can use it this year.

As you can see, Cozy Bear took a liking to it too.  He is engrossed in his book {tee hee} and snuggled up warm as a bug in a rug.

What is your favorite afghan pattern to crochet?  Share if you have a mind to.  🙂

Have a fabulous Friday!  Mine is going to start EARLY, but I am so excited!  I am catching a train to Seward with my team at work.  We are taking a boat from there to Fox Island for lunch and then back to town.  It’s been rainy here so I hope I stay as warm as Cozy Bear!



P. S.  I decided to add a pattern in case you are interested.  {Click image for pattern info.}

P. S. I decided to add this Red Heart pattern in case you are interested. It is the same general idea as what I crocheted, but the pattern calls for thicker yarn and I used worsted weight.

  1. I love the granny square blanket like you have. I just keep adding and adding until it is the size I want. I have a red, white, and blue one that I plan to use as a picnic blanket or a queen sized bedspread when it is all done.

    How nice to hear that your son likes your crochet! My son is only one and can’t say anything that complicated yet. 🙂

  2. Your granny square is beautiful! I haven’t picked up a crochet hook in so long. I’m not very good at it, but would like to give it a go again. Years ago when I used to crochet a lot, I used to like making Ripple Afghans. I’d love to try granny squares when I get a chance to sit down with a crochet hook again. Thank you for the link to the pattern. I printed it for a future project 🙂
