This Granny Square Lovey pattern is simple, fun and quick to work up! The Granny Square Lovey can be adapted to just about any cozy size of afghan you could want.
I needed a quick baby gift and this was the perfect project to use some of my favorite Caron Cakes Self Striping Yarn! The nice thing about using the Caron Cakes Self Striping Yarn is the coloring affect it created without me having to change colors. Plus, one Caron Cakes skein produced the whole lovey. I added a white yarn border with picots to set off the bright colors of the self striping. It created a really nice contrast.

|A Granny Square Lovey I crocheted, changing colors every four rows.|
*To form picot: ch 3, sl st to 1st ch
Join yarn. Ch 1, (1 sc, picot, 1 sc,) in corner, *(sc 5, picot), repeat from * to next corner, (1 sc, picot, 1 sc,) in corner. Repeat this pattern around entire edge of project.
I like to place a picot in each corner so I mess around with my single crochet count until it all fits together. I used to be a perfectionist about stitch count but when my washcloth is finished I won't notice.
Finish, weave ends.
