Granny Square Scarf


This winter I spent a lot of time making Granny Squares. They were simple things, easy to make in-between projects when I wanted to crochet *something* but had no clear ideas. Then Pat's mom suggested that they could be sewn together on a diagonal to make a scarf -- and here we are.

I made these squares out of homespun gotten from Michael's. Each is relatively small, crocheted just twice around. I stuck them together using red thread. I figure, even if they come apart they can easily be sewn back together again -- not like a usual crocheted scarf that would just unravel.
