Crochet - Granny Square Scarves

Crochet - Granny Square Scarves

We had a quiet kind of weekend and made the most of the sunshine in the garden by dusting down the garden furniture and having a bit of a tidy.  I also managed to finish one of the many crochet projects I have on the go; granny square scarves...

I started the first of these for Lulu before Christmas but I was lazy and left all the ends hanging so she didn't actually get to wear it.  So with a bit of free time this weekend I finished it all off and completed the second one I had also started and not finished! 

Again, inspiration for these was found online; I had bookmarked a couple of these granny scarves last year but when I went back to find them the pages were gone :( 

You don't need a pattern though just pick any type of granny square (I used Jane Brocket's Starburst Flower square) make up 9 or so, join then add a border (I joined in 4th round and then finished with rows of double and treble crochet).




and here's her sister...




We also had time to set these little babies on the windowsill - where they are happily sunbathing the days away!


Bye for now. Em xx

    I love the scarf and always admire anyone who can crochet, the one needle thing is beyond me.

      Thank you - I have yet to master two needles and feel exactly the same about anyone who can knit.xx

    Well done finishing the granny squares - they really do make lovely scarves. Lulu looks warm and snuggly in hers. Your spuds look pretty good too - which variety are they? Hope you have a good week.

      Thank you, I'd say I hope she gets some wear out of it - but I'm desperate for the sun so she may have to wait until Winter again! The spuds are Charlottes for spring/summer salads (Hopefully!) Have a lovely week too.xx

    Gorgeous scarf and beautifully photographed too. Reminds me, I should go and buy some seed potatoes. Late with the garden stuff this year.

    They are beautiful scarfs, love the colours in the grey one, but the white is equally as nice. Agree with Wendy that your photographs are stunning!
