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.

  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!

  30. "you mentioned feedback on wix. I am a wix user and have absolutely loved it. I am a teacher and I built a great website for my classes that enables me to share info, provide documents, presentations, etc., easily communicate with students and parents. plus the site looks great! As I have become more technologically savvy I have encountered some limitations, ones that are bypassed by upgrading for a fee, but the limitations include embedding html, analytics, widgets and gadgets. things that I didn’t even know existed when I first built the site.
    overall I recommend wix to others when they are looking for a simple way to build a great looking site!"
