Giant granny square free crochet pattern

Описание работы и схема вязания квадрата на русском языке

Granny square is a patten loved by many of those who like to crochet. This simple motif is easy to remember and could be done with any type of yarn. Crochet granny squares could be used nearly for any project, from a crochet blanket to a skirt, from potholders to a crochet toy.

Usually granny square motif is small, about 4-6 rows. It's fast to work and is perfect for using any leftover yarn. But what can you do in case you need a bigger square? How about making a blanket out of a single granny square?

Of course you can follow the pattern and add more rows. Would it be so inspiring or you'll get bored? May be this is the point where you can try to be designer yourself and create your own granny square variation?

This is what happened to me in March 2012, when I decided to make a nice bedcover for the twin bed of my son. I was not too excited to crochet small squares, large squares seemed to me much more attractive.

I was also planning to use a simple pattern easy to memorize, without a need to constantly checking the chart. The other question was to find a pattern that wouldn't be too monotonous, repeating the same series of stitches was boring.

As a result, I selected granny square pattern, but created my own version of the famous motif - "Giant Granny Square". The chart and instructions were specifically made for the Darievna.ru and were also published on Ravelry in April 2012. A bit later I also made an instruction for the twin bed blanket that consisted of 6 giant granny squares.
