What is more classic than a granny square? When I was first learning crochet, the granny square motif was the one thing that I knew I had to create. The signature motifs were a cornerstone in my childhood home. I always loved the soft artwork of the small clusters, whether I was cuddling up with one of my grandmothers afghans or climbing the mountain of blankets in the laundry room.
This love of the classic folk art staple is what inspired me to create the Modern Granny Throw, my newest free pattern for Red Heart Yarns. The classic granny is taken to the modern age with locks of double crochet to break up the sections. This is and Ideal pattern for beginner crocheters who (if you're anything like me) have a few spare skeins of Red Heart Super Saver!
