This is a stitch tutorial, not a definite pattern. More like a "recipe", this stitch is very easy to crochet, there is an inherent logic to it, once you complete the first few rows, you'll be good to go. My friend's mom made these for her and her sisters in the 70's and 80's.
Tips: any hook/yarn combination you want to use
**To get the best show for your work, I do recommend to use 1 light color and one dark color ie: black and white or pink and brown or green and peach, etc. Using 2 similar toned colors like blue and purple or pink and yellow will not show the stitch as easily as the contrasting will.
You will need 2 colors, color A and color B.

A little about me, I'm crochet crazy, mostly for charity. I'm not a professional, just an enthusiastic yarn hobbyist. I have been blogging for 7 years, 5 of which are Sarah Sweethearts and crocheting for over 14 years. Recently I've ventured into public speaking and Bible teaching and am enjoying it tremendously. I just adore working with yarn, don't you? When I had my first child, I wanted so much for him to have a white crochet blanket, a basic granny square design, but didn't know how. My mother then taught me how to crochet the Granny and my Mamau gave me a Women's Day book of Granny Squares from the 1970's. Its been a love affair ever since.
Occasionally I write up a "how I made that" to share. Hope you enjoy! Happy crocheting and God bless!
