Granny Square Class - 10/23 & 10/30

Granny Square Class

Sundays: October 23 and 30, 2016

1:00  – 4:00 pm at INUA Wool Shoppe

Cost: $40 plus materials

Instructor:  Anne M. Castle

Limited to 6 - 10 students


Granny squares are square motifs crocheted in rounds working from the center outwards.  The traditional one is a double-crocheted square made with a series of chains and double-crocheted blocks.  Although particular color and pattern schemes for granny squares change with time, this class of motif is a staple among crocheters.  Multicolor granny squares are an effective way to use up small amounts of yarn left over from other projects and basic granny square motifs do not require advanced skills to execute.


Learn how to make a traditional granny square and then a Slouchy Granny Square Hat.  


In the first class you will learn how to make a traditional granny square and begin the granny squares for the hat.  In the second class you will learn to assemble the squares and finish the hat.
