Red Eye Crochet Granny Square


Red Eye Crochet Granny Square

"This is the last of four 5 inch squares I made as homework for a crochet retreat. It does have more ends to weave in, but it is still fun to make and goes quickly. You may be surprised to know, those raised blue lines are NOT post stitches. How do they work then? Read on and find out!"


Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

Crochet Gauge13 dc x 7 rows = 4" square. The actual square is small enough and works up quickly enough, that there's no reason to do a separate gauge swatch. The finished square should be 5 inches.

Thanks to this site, I am rediscovering my fondness for Granny Squares, especially those with exotic stitches. To give the designer credit, I thought the unusual texture was due to Post stitches, too! While I appreciate the detailed photo of where the twisted loop and associated stitches are located, I really wish there was a video for this. This is a complicated enough project that it warrants either that or step by step photos.
