Square 1

There is nothing quite like a never-ending crocheted granny square for comfort. It comforts me to make it, and it comforts me to wear it. Here’s one I finished a few years ago.

This is the first one I made from nice yarn. It’s all Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in various shades I had left over from other projects. The only exception is the scalloped edge, which I made from Madelinetosh Prairie, a lace weight yarn, also left over from another project.

This is large, as shawls go, I think about 52” square. I fold it into a triangle and start draping. When I’m done, usually I don’t need a coat. It’s 100% merino wool, so it’s pretty warm.

My idea for the color scheme was to do colors I see outside in early spring. I like how it turned out.
