One Step Closer to Solving My Granny Square Problem

While I still haven’t decided exactly what I’ll be doing about the missing granny square in the crocheted afghan I bought at the yard sale, I now have a great resource to help me work on the problem.

My copy of The Granny Square Book: Timeless Techniques & Fresh Ideas for Crocheting Square by Square by Margaret Hubert arrived in the mail this week. The first thing I did was page through the 75 granny square patterns, looking with crossed fingers for this pattern:

Of course, it’s not in the book. But I was excited to find this:

Square 22: Forget Me Not (page 55)

The center of this granny square perfectly matches the one I have. The border is very different, but I think I might be able to figure the border out using some of the other patterns.

While this square isn’t a perfect match, the borders are similar enough that I might be able to tweak them to look more like the original blanket. I’ll have to play with it for a bit and see if I can come up with something I like.

Even if it doesn’t work out, I can tell I’m going to have fun trying some of the patterns in this book. I’ve never seen so many variations of granny squares or so any intriguing ideas for how to use them. I can’t wait to get out my crochet hook and brush up on my stitches.
