Ruffles, Bobbles, and Granny Squares for Your Crochet Afghan

Last week I shared with you a few of my favorite granny squares from The Big Book of Granny Squares: 365 Crochet Motifs. If you remember, I said that, with 365 motifs, I could only share a few of my favorites. It wasn’t enough. There are so many amazing granny squares, I have to share just a few more with you.

Granny Squares

No book of crochet motifs would be complete without examples of the popular granny square. But this book takes this classic design one step farther, offering both classic granny square designs as well as modern interpretations. I love the addition of single crochet stitches in A Sweet Granny.

Bobble Squares

A great technique for creating subtle texture is crochet bobbles. Worked in the same color as the rest of the square, the raised bobble stitches create a 3-D texture that is more understated. These squares are the perfect option for combining with some of the more complicated squares in this book. And wouldn’t the Bobble Frame square be fun with a design embroidered within the frame of the bobbles?

Ruffle Squares

Ruffles are a great way to create textured crochet squares. We’ve all created unintentional ruffles on a project, so we know they are easy, and it’s fun to put those ruffles to a beautiful use. You can create a representation of the Great Coral Reef or a beautiful flower.

Get all 365 of these incredible squares. Order or download your copy of The Big Book of Granny Squares: 365 Crochet Motifs today and discover all of the amazing crochet squares.
