Day 3 of the Craft Yarn Council’s Anti-Boredom Month Granny Square Crochet-A-Long here on my blog is one of my favorites!
The Emoji Granny Square!
I chose to make a fun emoji, a smile with a playful tongue! These emoticons have taken over the world in the past few years and are a huge hit with kids and adults alike.
Feel free to play with the facial features sewn onto this shape, there are lots of different emojis to choose from!
This square would make up a beautiful blanket for someone with a fun, playful personality – big or small!
