Grannies and Flowers

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a sort of grannies I was working on. At first I wanted to make a little blanket, but after making nine or ten grannies I already knew it: this would never be a blanket. So I went for a pillow cover. When I had enough grannies for the cover I had to join them and remove the loose ends, something I’m never looking forward to, so I postponed it for a couple of weeks. But…, I picked it up this weekend and finished the cover, so here’s the result:


And because I perceive a sort of happiness during the project of crocheting grannies by changing colors now and then (recognizable for anyone?), I’m making another pillow cover. Different colors, different pattern, though.

  6. You do a great job on your crochet. I have so much but still want all I see. I never learned how, but certainly enjoy seeing what others create.

  7. Your pillow looks great, Liz! Even I tend to get bored doing the same project for a long time. That's why I never try blankets.

    1. Thank you! Every now and then I try a blanket again, but it always ends up as a pillow, haha! I've almost finished a baby blanket, though. A post about it will follow soon.

  8. I think this is my favorite combination of granny squares that I've ever seen. I think it's because I love the bright colors. It turned out really nicely.:)

    1. Hi Katy,

      Thank you for your nice comment! After finishing the pillow cover that I want to make of the flowers I will write a tutorial. So take a look at my blog now and then. I think it doesn't take too long before the pillow is finished.
