How did this “Lior’s Granny Square” come about? Well, I love my kids and I love crochet. I’ve made many crochet pieces for them, but I thought what about designing something dedicated to the fact that they’re alive and I love them. Hence came 2 granny squares designed for each of my 2 children. This one’s for my son Lior, my youngest.

For this project you’ll need:

HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US but you can use any size yarn and hook that is recommended by the yarn.

YARN: 1 skein of worsted weight yarn, 4 ply US, 10 ply AU

100 grams / 3.5. oz

240 meters / 262 yards


Another yarn brand with color options



I made mine with the yarn and hook stated above and my square measured from corner to corner 8 ½ inches or 22 cm. If you want a 6 inch square just do one less round. I later tried a scrap yarn square. Looks wild don’t you think?
