Granny Square to Wear – or the world’s easiest top

In between the dreadful work overload of the past few days, I managed to crochet this little delight. Yes, CROCHET. I’ve been so busy learning how to knit that I had “forgotten” that I’m actually much better (and quicker) at crocheting.

granny5This particularly pattern is Amanda Tipton’s take on a “Granny Square to Wear”. And what a great concept it is! In the matter of a couple of hours, you’ll have a great baby top, perfect for these sad Spring days. All you really need to know is how to crochet a granny square (check out Teresa’s blog if you need help – http://www.crochetgeek.com/2009/01/crochet-traditional-granny-square.html) and then take some time to join both pieces. It’s instant-crochet-satisfaction! 🙂

The pattern may be found here:

Or on Ravelry

And here’s my creation! I have another one hooked up already, so more updates to follow!Fotor041021406
