Wild Fuchsia Granny Square

Some people say that granny squares are old-fashioned, but the truth is that granny squares rock! Once you start making them, you can’t get enough. Did you know that there is even an International Granny Square Day where each year people post and share gorgeous blocks? They are so versatile you can use them in a vast number of projects. Depending on your skill level, you can start with something simple such as making blankets or cushion covers. However, if you wish to move onto something adventurous, you can crochet cardigans or more complicated home decorations. To cut the story short, I proudly present one of my recent designs, and I hope you have lots of fun making it.
