Mini Granny Square

If you enjoy crochet as I do, I’m sure you have a special box dedicated to yarn leftovers. Have you ever wondered what to do with all those bits and pieces of unwanted thread? Whenever I feel like it’s time to use my stash up, I try to come up with a project that would fit the amount of yarn I have left in my box, and this particular Mini Granny Square is a result of one. You can make lots of them in various colourways and join together to create a gorgeous blanket or combine four of them to create a bigger granny square. The choice is yours, and I hope you have lots of fun making them.
