Basic Granny Square Tutorial for Gathered by Mollie Makes

Now that it is 2013 my mind is already thinking of what new crafts I want to try this year. I hope some of you are thinking about learning to crochet or knit! I recently shared a simple granny square tutorial in Issue 12 of Gathered by Mollie Makes. This granny square is perfect for blankets, scarves, coasters, a gift bag pocket and anything else you can think of! Granny squares are definitely a great way to get started with crochet.

You can find the full tutorial in the latest issue of Gathered. I really want to make a giant granny square blanket (like the one in yesterday's Blush List) for my bed. I think it would be fun to work on even if it takes all year to finish. ;)

What crafts do you want to tackle this year? Have you started any new projects since Christmas or are you giving yourself a much-needed break for a few weeks?

I hope you are having a great Monday so far!
