There is something so soothing to me about the rhythm of crocheting the granny stitch. It one of those things that I can practically do without looking. I knew I wanted this crochet scarf to feature the granny stitch but I didn’t want it it to look like your every day granny square. Enter, the granny rectangle.
I designed this pattern as part of ELK Studio’s Make it for Me Event. Every January, Kathy features free crochet patterns on her blog that are perfect to make for yourself. Its a fun way to wind down after all that holiday crocheting.

The Not Just For Granny Rectangle Scarf is pretty easy once you get going, and being that this is a once skein project, it will just fly off your hook. I made it in a matter of a couple days.
All you need is one cake of Lion Brand Mandala yarn (or their Cupcake line will work too!) and a 4.5 mm hook. That means you’ll have all the pretty colors and only 2 ends to weave in. Sounds like a winner right! I used the color Chroma for mine. I love all these bright colors.
-4.5 mm crochet hook (I used this one!)
-tapestry needle to weave in ends
