Great Things to do with Grannies

       Make an Afghan
Making a blanket is one of the most obvious things to do with granny squares, but also the option with the most variations. I have listed some of my favorites below. 1. Use the same square pattern iwth a variety of yarn colors.
2. Use the same yarn colors on a variety of square patterns.
3. Make a flower garden afghan by making a vareity of squares that look like flowers.
4. Make a christmas afghan by using red, green and white yarn in squares designed as snowflakes.

Make a pillow cover

By using eight 6-inch granny squares you can create a beautiful cover for a 12-inch pillow form that you can get for just a few dollars at almost any craft store.

Make a bookmark

Crochet a 3 to 5 small granny squares using breadspread weight thread and join in a row for a pretty page marker.

Make a tote bag

The number of granny squares you will need will depend on the size of the square you are using and the size of the bag you want to make. Just make the two sides, join together three of the edges and add handles.

Make a scarf

If you join eight or nine 6-inch granny squares in a row it makes a wonderful scarf.
