Solid X-Square

There are many Square patterns. This will be the first of a series of square patterns I will share here.

The square patterns are very versatile. They are widely used in making Granny Square for blankets, cushion covers, cardigans, placemats, dishcloths, tablecloths, shawls, coasters, just to name a few.

You can be creative by mixing in colors. One-color for each row, or one patch, one color. The combination is endless.

Yarn – you can use just about any yarn type, depending on your project.
