Pattern Description:

Before I hear you all screaming "Not another plain, traditional granny square pattern!" please, hear me out!

Every year, I make an afghan using granny squares and ripples (my grandmother's two favorite afghans), and my mom & I sell raffle tickets to raise money for Alzheimer's Research.

This year, I'm designing as I'm stitching, and I'm inviting everyone to join in! I have plans for at least 8 squares - some worked flat, and some in the round - and most will be granny or ripple related.

Of course, I have to have at least one traditional granny square in the mix!

Most of the squares will be for sale (with 100% of the sales going towards Alzheimer's Research); this square is free.

  • 12" square


  • Red Heart Super Saver

You Will Also Need:

  • size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook

Suggested yarn:

100 yards of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Red Heart Super Saver
