While noodling around last night I came up with a granny square variation which, to my knowledge (and according to the current Ravelry database) has not been published before, so I thought I’d share it with you guys! I think it’s pretty fun — it uses a few special stitches (hence the «stitch sampler» in the name) such as the 2-dc cluster, the puff stitch, & the popcorn stitch, all of which are explained in the tutorial. It would make a fun blanket, scarf, hat, or whatever else you’d use a normal granny square for!
The above examples were worked using Stylecraft Special DK scraps. The bright one used a G/6 hook, the purple-y one used an H/8 hook.
I hope you like it. 🙂 Let me know if you use this for anything — I’d love to see what you make!
