The crochet directions for granny square #2 are pretty easy, quick and lots of fun. You can use this simple pattern in so many ways.
This is one of my favorite granny squares because any way you make it up it always looks great.
I often make it up in one large square for baby blankets. Simply add a nice boarder and you have a beautiful gift for a friend or charity.
Or you can make many small squares using different colors and join them together for another cute baby blanket. You can add as many rows as you like and stop any time.
This square can be 3 rows or 333 rows, sizes from a doll blanket to a full size afghan.
It is all up to you. You can use a larger crochet hook and bulky yarn or a small hook and baby yarn. Either way makes it possible for you to accomplish different sizes with this one great pattern.
