Peek-a-boo Granny Square - Coaster

Updated: Sep 18

As a crafter, a Granny Square/stitch is the first and the easiest pattern to work with. be it making a blanket, cushions etc. Granny Square was the first project we taught our students during our crochet workshops. Why not spice it up! So here is one such variation of the versatile Granny Square - my Peek-a-boo Version :)

SKILL Level – Easy


About Pattern: Peek-a-boo Granny Square is worked up exactly like a traditional Granny Square with the modification on alternate sides of every round. this gives you a solid side and a more open side, alternatively.


The Written instructions will give you an exact 4 inch square that can be used as Coasters, or as Motifs to join and make into a bigger project.


Following the logic, you can make the square as big as you want. I definitely will be experimenting to incorporate this into bigger projects and will link them here as and how they get done!


For now - her is the 4" version!

Make them as colorful as you want. It's an awesome scrap-tastic project 💕



About Pattern: This is a different version of Granny Square and its 6 rounds measure up to a 4” square equivalent to a 3 round version of a regular Granny Square.

Materials:

● Crochet hook - preferred hook that works with chosen yarn. I HAVE USED: Size G hook/ 4mm

● Stitch Markers, scissors and a needle to finish up.
