Granny Squares are everywhere right now! There are blankets, bags, sweaters, scarves…all kinds of pretty patterns and projects! I thought it might be fun to make a simple cowl using a basic granny square pattern and I love the way it turned out. 😊

I used this basic granny square pattern from Hopeful Honey. This particular pattern turns at the beginning of each round – this keeps the square from getting a little wonky and crooked looking.
I used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn in Ivory, Viridescent, and Dark Gray with an H/5mm crochet hook to stitch up my granny squares. I started my square with 2 rows of Ivory, then I stitched 2 rows of Viridescent, and finished it with one row of Dark Gray. I made a total of 6 squares. My squares measured about 5.5 inches.
I connected my squares together with Dark Gray using single crochet to add a little texture to the cowl. Once all the squares were stitched together, I added a row of single crochet around both of the outside edges to give it a more finished look.
The Crochet Granny Square Cowl is super easy to make and works up quickly! If you want it to be longer, simply add more squares. And your color choices are endless! Crochet cowls make great gifts, too. 😊
