The beginners can really have fun with the crochet learning doing some cute and fun projects just like this straight granny square. The one yarn hued granny square is really making this crochet project easier as you do not have to add in more colors. Create a bunch of these granny squares to practice sufficiently. Details here!
Though a little time consuming, pixel art projects are so fun! I think I like most that it kind of resembles a quilt, but also that it uses my favorite join-as-you method – the Pull Loop Through Method! Makes for an easy join, and no worrying about how to assemble later – can’t say I enjoy sewing squares together. BUT! If you do, you could always make the squares separately, and then use the mattress stitch (or your preferred technique) to join them later. WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH THIS SQUARE? It’s the perfect size for a 16″ throw pillow, use it as an afghan square, and build a blanket, add more squares all around to make a larger blanket, use it as a doily, attach it to a dowel rod, and hang it, use it as the star of the show for a sweater/top, even changing up the weight of yarn used will open doors!
To begin with, this crochet mosaic potholder uses quadrants of repeating patterns to generate a truly spectacular effect. Indeed, the combination of an almost snowflake-like pattern and flame orange is wonderful.
