Great Granny Swap: Days 7 and 8


I wish I could remember where I learned to make this square. It was part of a patchwork granny square afghan that I found in a magazine years ago. The thing I like most about them is that you can turn the squares and put them together to create really neat patterns. For example, here are two of the day 7 squares with the squares I made on day 2. I love how the green ties everything together to make a diagonal stripe!


For my day 8 squares, I used a variation on the "Split in Two" grannies I made on day 7. This time around (pun intended), I made 8 small pieces and put them together to make a diamond. After all, everyone knows that a diamond is a granny's best friend!

  1. Hi -- Were you able to find the directions for the diagonal green and yellow square above? I started a project years ago and now can't find the directions that I used for the split square. I do remember though, that half of the square was done first in one color, then the second color was added and the other triangle completed. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
