Granny Square Day 2019

Granny Square Day 2019 is coming!!! This will be it’s sixth year on Thursday 15th August 2019. I was super excited to be asked by at Simply Crochet Mag to be a Granny Square Ambassador, myself and three other amazing ambassadors @annaboos_house, @katiejonesknit and @barbertondaisy  will be sharing exclusive free Granny Square patterns on our blogs and social media sites. Simply Crochet Mag have been working hard to bring you lots of tutorials, videos, freebies and more!

 

If your new to Granny Square Day, it’s super easy to join in and get involved. On August 15th, take a picture of your granny square and crop the picture into a square shape, so that your square neatly fills up the entire space.  On the day share your picture on your Instagram, and use the #grannysquareday2019. Your squares will then be added to virtual blankets. 

 

So make sure your following Simply Crochet and all there ambassadors to watch out for all the latest Granny Square news and fun stuff leading up to the big day.  So all you’ve got to remember is ‘ Be there and be square’. Wise words from Granny Square Founder @suregal27
