Tradition is great, but sometimes a unique granny square is just what you want. This square is made with two small traditional granny squares and two mitered squares joined together and then finished with a textured border. I designed and made this unique granny square for Allison’s Wedding Blanket CAL. I’ve posted those details below, you should really check it out, because the designers are amazing, and so is the finished blanket!

The yarn for this design was provided by Red Heart Yarns. All opinions are my own.
