Rainbow Pops Granny Square

What I like about granny squares is the infinite number of colour variations. Even if you use the same pattern, by using various shades of yarn, you can turn your project into something unique. This particular eight-round granny square was so much fun to make. It’s super easy and allows you to use a lot of different colour combinations.
