Beyond the very basics, my crochet capabilities begin and end with granny squares. Which I’m totally fine with since these are the epitome of portable patchwork and enable me to get my crafting fix on the go. Plus, I love exploring the possibilities within the simplest of geometric motifs. So when I saw this fabulous skirt on Pinterest, I knew I had to make one of my own. 35 granny squares later…
You know me, I was tempted to go wild with every color of the rainbow; instead, I stuck with the same beige hue as the outline color in each square, keeping all the color madness a bit more contained. I did bust through lots of little yarn scraps, but also ended up with something that I’ll actually wear. It’s fun without being over the top.
I lined it with beige jersey fabric and added an elastic waste band, nothing fancy– and somehow the lining is just the right color to not show, while making it clear that I’m not completely exposing myself either.
Definitely adds some, shall we say… thickness to my derriere region, but I know I’ll appreciate the warmth during the winter months. This post reminds me that I also finished up my previous granny square project a month or so ago. My crochet afghan, for which I did go crazy with every color of the rainbow, but it looks great on our new dark brown sofa.
All with one little square– who’d have thought?! Definitely some future projects in that roundup.
I bet you could even make a puppy sweater.
