Since Lion Brand Yarn always features unique products and projects, I would like to share with all of you my mock granny square winning idea. I crocheted a 9 petal yarn flower then faced the challenge of trying to make it the center part of a traditional granny square block. Unfortunately, whatever I did --nothing worked symmetrically. Don't worry, there is a happy and special ending to my project. I didn't need super glue, I designed a traditional granny square block in one color then attached the 9 petal flower by weaving the base color yarn from front to back attaching this flower securely to the top of the base block. I made 30 base blocks with flowers for the front then 30 mock granny square blocks for the back of the poncho featured in the slide. When I experimented more, I found I could design other interesting mock granny squares easily. Children and adults can enjoy this project. Additional blocks can be added to the poncho for a longer one. This project can generate a lot of memories because your friends or strangers could exchange center flowers or designs with you so you could create your own special mock granny square project. Happy crocheting always!Mock granny square
