Granny Square Day was created in 2014 by US crochet whizz Susan Regalia, who realised that Instagram’s iconic grid format could be used to replicate the patchwork arrangement of the classic granny square blanket online. Others soon caught on to the concept and so Granny Square Day was born – bringing the worldwide crochet community together in a celebration of design and colour. “A blanket is a gift of comfort and love,” says Susan. “When any of us view or contribute some of these granny squares, it’s as though we join in to a giant world hug with each other!”
August 15th is this year's Granny Square Day.
I am sure we could all have a go at a Granny Square - simple or as complex as you like - this year ready to send off to South Africa!
Why not post a photo of your work in this thread?
