Granny Squares are wildly popular right now- and not just for blankets! Join Brenda K. B. Anderson as she demonstrates all you need to know to crochet your very own Granny Square Accessories set! This class includes two fun patterns: the Granny Square Confection Beanie and the matching Granny Square Confection Mitts.
The Beanie features 3 different sized granny squares, stitched together for a fun patchwork-like effect and a cute pompom. There are clear lay-out photos in the pattern for you to follow if you would like a similar color-pattern to Brenda’s sample, however, if you are looking to use up scarps of yarn, then this is the perfect project for you!
As an extra bonus- Brenda shows you her simple way of making an optional fleece lining to fit your hat. Don’t worry if you have little sewing experience; you don’t need a sewing machine or even sewing thread! The lining is hand-stitched together with yarn using a very simple technique that results in a smooth, stretchy lining without any bulky seam allowances! This way of creating fleece linings can be transferred to other hat projects too. The Beanie pattern comes in four adult sizes, but as Brenda explains in the video, many children will also fit the small or medium sizes included in this pattern.
The Granny Square Confection Mitts are a quick-to-make companion piece to the hat. They are stretchy and fit very well, thanks to the ribbed fabric. These fingerless mittens come in three adult sizes.
Brenda will walk you through making this charming accessories set with video demonstrations for every step along the way; from choosing the materials and creating each stitch, to blocking your projects for that professional finish. She shares plenty of tips and advice to help your projects look their best! With over 2 hours of clear video instruction, you will be well on your way to creating your very own Granny Square sets for yourself and your friends!
