I used a Cotton/Acrylic mix Sport weight yarn approx. 50 g = 150 m/165 yards and a hook size 3mm (EUR)/11 (U.K)/c-2 (U.S)
I made 8 granny squares with 4 rows, each row in a different color and the last one in the same color, I used grey on my belt.
Join the squares by sewing them together right sides together and only in the back loops.
Finish off with a double crochet (U.K)/single crochet (U.S) edging made in a contrasting color, I used red. Caution! Make sure you make your stitches in the loops between the clusters, it looks more nice.
Make the strings like you would join a new color. Join yarn in the corners and in the middle on the short ends and make a chain of 60 crochet stitches. Fasten off, cut off yarn about 1 inch/2 cm from the end. Fasten off all ends.
Well, that is all for now. I am busy making things. Sewing. I will tell you more about that soon. I just thought I would pop in to show you what my granny squares turned in to. I am very pleased with my Granny Square belt and to be honest I could probably make a few of them to alternate colors and effect. That is the great thing with crochet and grannies, never ending combinations and always ALWAYS beautiful. See you soon. I'll pop in later this week.
PS. The rose is made by my daughter Nelly. Free hand. I am proud. And I am using it all the time. She is pure talent that kid... Says a biased Mama. :D
