Granny’s Galore!!! Whimsical Autumn Afghan Week 5 is now here!! We are now half way done with our crochet along and our stack of granny squares is getting tall!! I hope you are loving the 4 different styles of granny’s!

If you are just joining now.. you can get all the weekly posts and material list in the Crochet With Me tab at the top of the page… This project is a simple 10 week CAL, using 4 various styles of granny squares.

This weeks set of 5 squares goes back to the two color granny from week one in different color schemes… This is the last week of Style 1 Square… You will end up with 10 Style 1 Squares that are all in different color sequences… But, if you have a favorite color square… It is perfectly fine to use that too… The main idea with the 4 styles is that you will have a specific layout of all 35 squares to make the afghan!
