Looking back on this week of granny square fun and the squares shared to #grannysquareday2020 I’m bowled over by the variety of inspiring designs I’ve seen, as well as the enthusiasm and kindness of fellow crafters. I love you guys! And I’ve never felt more justified in saying that grannies bring out the best in all of us… I’m looking forward to next year already! ❤️ Bx

Happy granny square day! My celebrations are culminating with my new free granny square pattern! I’ve called this ‘The Well Of Possibilities’ and it’s also available in the @simplycrochetmag granny square booklet in issue 100.
With a dark purple colour at the centre and graduating lighter shades on each round, I think looking at this square is like peering down a well (of possibilities?). It shows that granny squares don’t have to be complicated to look gorgeous!
You can make this ombré colour theme square by using four shades of the same colour. Try combining this sort of square with others where you place the lightest colour at the centre instead… grannies rule! ❤️ Bx
