Granny Squares

Martha Stewart Living, November 2000

At their most beautiful, squares are subtle repeating designs in an overall pattern. Here, small squares of a single color are stitched together. Angora fibers soften and disguise the squares, leaving the emphasis on texture, and close stitches create a denser fabric. Use a small hook and good-quality angora. Each square works up quickly, making this a rewarding project for beginners.

To begin, ch6, then join last ch to first ch with sl st to form the foundation ring (see Abbreviations).
