This crochet granny square is a stunning work made using the Bargello technique. Work up a few of these granny squares and join them together for a uniquely beautiful crochet granny square afghan. The end result is a beautifully textured granny square that will instantly draw the eye of anyone who walks past it. 
In the designer's own words, "Bargello technique has long been used in embroidery (Florentine embroidery). I thought, why not try to crochet pattern in this technique? The essence of this technique is to use different blending colors and combinations of them so that there were flames, waves, peaks. In the Bargello technique, you can associate a square from the center, a circle or a round motif. It'd be chic to crochet Bargello blankets, bedspreads, pillowcases, and cushion for chairs."

I've tried this 3 times now, paying careful attention...just cant get it right...when someone comes out with a well written english version, I will try again.

Very elaborate. I love the yellow surrounded by brown and green. The yellow gave energy to the whole design. Lovely!!

I fell in love with Bargello way back when I was a teenager. Of course, back then it was pretty much confined to tapestry work or needlepointboth of which were well beyond my limited set of skills. I dont have time right now, but I am looking forward to working up this pattern. I havent decided what Ill do with the individual squares yet, but Im sure something will come to mind.
