This month’s granny square inspiration project is a granny square top! I have shared a design previously (one made from a single square) and have now created another design to play with that uses more squares. The overall shape of both are similar and totally adaptable to suite your preferred size and length.
This one was made with a total of 12 squares each for the front and the back (so 24 in total). Each square measures approximately 12cm x 12cm. You can adjust the number of squares to suit the square and size top that you need.
I used two skeins of a 4ply hand-dyed yarn for this and a 3.5mm hook. I had two different colours and went with one colour for each side so that it was like having two different tops depending on which way round I opt to wear it. The joins are all on the outside with single crochet (UK double crochet) as I wanted it to be part of the overall look.
I joined all fo the squares and the sides, added a simple border around the arm and neck holes before working on the bottom band. This was to make sure that I had all of the yarn that I needed. This top and style is definitely going to be a favourite for me!
I’ll be showing my Clubhouse members exactly how I made this bag in our week 2 Hook and Learn lesson in the Clubhouse. Every week in the Hooked on Crochet Club I have a live tutorial that covers a pre-planned project or a tutorial for a stitch or technique that members need on a current project – either their own or a clubhouse one.
