As promised, here are some more Soley Granny Squares Hats by Crafty Christina.  Can you believe that I’m working on two more?  These are the two best from the second batch.  You’ll see that the others were less thought out and I was running out of good color combos in my yarn stash.  For the yellow one I went with a bumblebee feel.  The green one was inspired by Yoshi from Super Mario Brothers.   

I went a little crazy with these but after a few projects that demanded constant attention and frogging the granny squares were a pleasant side note.  The process is quick to start and, as a result, very addictive. 

First of all, you just repeat the granny motif a bunch of times and before you know it there are five little squares ready to be joined.  You see this neat little stack of grannys and feel an enormous sense of accomplishment.  The pieces are made and you’re practically done.  But wait!  You have to weave in all those ends. 

This is where I went downhill.  Instead of weaving in the ends and joining the squares I decided to make three more sets of granny squares since it is much more fun to dive through a stash and pick out colors than dig out a yarn needle.  

They piled up in my yarn basket very quickly and then I had 20 granny squares and even more ends.  This is where I decided to stop at six hats total.  I could have made more granny squares, but I couldn’t imagine subjecting myself to more ends.  I’ll post the other two Soley Granny Squares Hats after, you guessed it, I weave in the remaining ends.
