Granny Square Apron

My new favorite thing. A granny square apron. Isn't it perfect! I was browsing for projects to share the other day and came across this apron on Flickr. I fell in love with it and just had to have one. It's perfect with jeans and a t-shirt. Which happens to be my favorite attire. Here is how I made mine. 

MATERIALS LIST:
Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn
Size U.S. H/8 (5.00mm)
Scissors
Tapestry Needle



Apron: Crochet 8 granny squares 4 rounds each. One square measures 5x5 inches. Assemble 2 rows of 4 squares each. Sew together. Weave ends.
Edging: Join main color with a slip st in any stitch on the outside edge of the apron. Work sc evenly spaced around, working 3 sc in each corner. Join with a slip st into beginning sc. Fasten off. Weave ends. 
Tie: Ch 5. Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (4 hdc). Ch 1, turn. {Hdc in each hdc across (4 hdc), ch 1, turn}. Repeat {} until tie measures desired length. Fasten off. Weave ends.
Finishing: Line up center of apron and center of tie. Sew tie to the upper edge of the apron. Fasten off. Weave ends.


Amazing right!

  1. Hey Sara, I love your granny square apron.
    I think it would look fab as a 'mini skirt' over the jeans and not just an apron.

    Love the colours , very striking.

  17. I occasionally find bags of granny squares at my second hand store, crocheted and ready to be put together, but donated as is....this will be a great idea to put together some holiday colored ones i already have....a Christmas gift completed in June? Who knew? thanks for the great inspiration!!

  21. I have a pile of granny squares that I am ready to connect. Can you share how you sewed yours together. I tried slip stitching, but it seemed to stick up too much and didn't give it the "neat" look I was looking for. Thanks!

  23. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  25. At this time it appears like Movable Type is the
    top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on
    your blog?

  26. About how much white cotton did you use? Do you think 1 ball of Lilys sugar and cream would be enough or 2?

  27. One more apply that may be used is definitely the elastic resistance band that will be taken just about
    everywhere and assembled approximately just about everywhere.
