Criss Cross Crochet Granny Square

Criss Cross Crochet Granny Square

"This solid, 12” square looks great in multiple colors, or in all one color. Back and forth, crossed post stitches form a lattice-like texture in the center, which is set off by a simple border. The back has a unique texture of its own, formed by the stitches that are skipped behind the post stitches.This is a more difficult pattern, with several advanced techniques. However, there are a lot of pictures for the more difficult parts, and links to tutorials for all of the advanced techniques used. Not the best pattern for a beginner, but could be a great pattern for an intermediate crocheter looking to learn new techniques."

It's gorgeous just the way it is but imagine it all in white for a baby christening! That would be a wonderful gift. I as also thinking of doing possibly two squares side by side down a length of about six squares and using it as a table runner. Or four squares as a place mat. You are only limited by your imagination.

Love the light and dark purple tones used on this one. I might make two squares and sew them back to back to make a potholder. Or I could sew the edges together and put in a lining for a little square bag.

Uh oh. I don't think my crochet skills are quite advanced, but I love this pattern (and colors!) too much not to go out and try it anyway. This would make sure a cute granny square afghan.

You may find your skills are more advanced than you think! Give it a shot - if you have trouble, send a comment on the post and maybe I can help )
