I’m so happy to bring you this super sold granny square today. A few years ago, someone asked me if there was a way of doing a solid granny square with absolutely NO holes. So I sat down and created one….only for it to be lost in a pile of yarn and forgotten about! So when I discovered it again a few weeks back, I thought to myself ‘I HAVE TO DO A TUTORIAL FOR THIS’ and that’s exactly what I did. SO here it is today for you. You will find the written instructions as well as the right and left handed tutorials at the base of the post.
Pattern use ideas
The great thing about granny squares is that there are so many projects that you can create with them. Use your imagination, use different colourways and create a project that is completely unique.
Written in UK terms
