Squared Diamond Granny

‘Croc’ has its meaning is hook. For those of you who know a crochet hook, you might think it makes sense, right? For the point of the crochet needle, of whatever size, reminds us of a hook. Thus, the word crochet was derived from the French word “croc”. In France Crochet is used, but as we are here in our land Brazil, the same name is Croche. Doing my research here on crochet, this technique so well known and practiced in our country, I came to the conclusion that one does not have a precision of where this art really originated.

But I found a text in English, whose reference is below, where I found a little more enlightening and complete about the origins and history of the Crochet. Today we can find various materials, both on needles and in different yarns ready to perform the art of crocheting, but in the old days it was not like that. The Irish used whatever they could put on their hands to carry out their work: first the fingers, followed by metal hooks, made of wood, fishbone, animal bone, horn, antique spoons, turtle spoon, ivory, copper , steel, etc.

Over time, a variety of materials were used: hair, grass, reeds, animal skins, wool, linen, copper wires, silk, cotton yarn. ” And so, were developed until today with options of yarn and materials to work with the crochet. The crochet stitches were being perfected and were being most useful. The crochet was also used in decoration, and for clothes, rugs, hats, burrows, being a differential.

Browsing the internet and found this pattern that has a very beautiful designer and looks 3D, a square inside the other. I leave here for you this pattern that is known as Squared Diamond Granny. It is a very modern pattern and you can use as many colors as you like and combine or make a gradient will look beautiful. It’s a patteern that takes a bit of doing because of the size because it is a quilt, and the quilts always take longer but I believe that about 3 months will be able to finish this marvel.


For a colorful design, get 7 oz. Yarn yarn. You can use the regular Super Heart protector. The color of the larger part will have to buy more because it uses more, and the color from inside that is less used will not spend much.

Change the face of your room with this quilt that is better to have something done for you, or even give someone a gift, but remember that it is a time-consuming pattern that will have to be programmed in time to deliver on time birthday. Enjoy and enchant all your friends and relatives.

Below I leave you a link to the written step-by-step of this pattern with the information and photos and I also leave a video to help even more to make a fantastic project. I hope you enjoy this pattern as I liked it. Good work and up to the next pattern.

    Do you ever publish printed patterns along with the tutorials? I really prefer written patterns.

    Question…does anyone know what to do about a granny afghan that starts with 3 squares in the center, then the granny 3 DC, and chain 3 on all 4 sides. Question is, when you lift it, it stretches so much. I need this to be more stable in shape. Because once it starts stretching when it is on the bed, even in the middle of the night with my granddaughter is under it, it will slide off the bed, sort of like an avalanche or mud slide! Lol! Any suggestions?
