Granny, Meet the Stripes
The Anarchist Knitter
I’m sure it’s not new. I’m sure that someone, somewhere, has had the same idea. But yesterday, as I was playing with yarn, I decided to entertain this idea: what would you get if you mixed a “traditional” granny square with the “solid” granny square? The answer is a very cool motif.
I decided to called it “Granny, Meet the Stripes”, because it does create a nice stripey effect.
– 25 gr of worsted weight yarn, in Colour A (CA);
– 50 gr of worsted weight yarn, in Colour B (CB – the solid section);
