Wild Granny Square

Wild Granny Square Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

I have designed this square with two different last rounds so that you can have a choice as to the look you want to achieve. The purple & yellow square uses the RND 6A instructions and the Plain Cream colored square uses the RND 6B instructions. This would be great for use in potholders.

You could use heavy rug yarn to make this into a potholder. Can you imagine an afghan made using the two colors as in the purple and yellow one! Talk about wild!

Materials Needed:
2 colors worsted weight yarn.
Red Heart was used in the big example.
Excellence by Nomis, in Winter White, was used for the solid color.
Red Heart off white, light brown, and orange variegated was used in the multicolored square.
