To begin with, the first of our amazing squares is one with a delicate but crisp border. Overall, this wonderful textured piece has 17 rounds and measures 4.5″.
The Windows Border is an easy two round pattern that can work with just about any pattern, but it is particularly suited when you're bordering squares or blocks that have been joined by one of the loopy methods, where chain loops are made all the way around the square. This would include the Tight Braid Join, Scallop Join, Flat Braid Join, and more! And I think it looks like little windows with pretty curtains - but the modern, graphic style will work with tons of patterns! For the hook and yarn, use whatever you've been using for the rest of your project.
Crochet Snowman Granny Squares Blanket

These smiling snowy faces can stay looking at each other in this Christmas all the time! Attaching these Snowman Granny Squares together, you can make any size blanket or afghan. It means this is a free size pattern. And also Snowman Granny Square Blanket can be worked with your favorite yarn weight. I used sport weight and made 20 squares. These all squares I joined with Join As You Go (JAYGo) method.

How To Crochet A Granny Square
"The granny square is the easiest crochet square out there and should be one of the first things a beginner should learn. It sets the start for more intricate patterns and designs. You can crochet a few rows and stop to form classic granny squares which are joined together, or you can continue with the rounds of clusters to make your granny square as big as you like (and even turn it into a one-piece blanket). How do you crochet a granny square? A granny square is crocheted in the round and it's constructed with clusters of 3 double crochet stitches evenly spaced out to form a square shape. This granny square tutorial was designed for absolute beginners with step by step instructions and a video tutorial for those who learn better from watching how it's done. "
