Mini Crocheted Granny Squares

When it comes to yarn, I’m all about a good stashbuster.  I know I’ve shared a few with you on this blog before, and I’m super excited to show you this one, too!

This cute crocheted square is a great way to use up any leftover yarn scraps that you may have laying around…and you can turn these little squares into anything you’d like.  Arrange them into a large blanket or tote bag…or you could even make a poncho or fun wall decoration out of them!

They’re so addicting and fun to make and don’t be surprised if you’re fresh out of yarn in about an hour!

For these squares, I used leftover yarn from my crocheted unicorn project.  I’m hoping I’ll have enough to make a little matching baby blanket!

I use a 5.0 crochet hook to make my little squares, but you can really use any hook size you’d like.  Obviously larger hooks will equate to larger squares and visa versa.
