One of the crochet magazines I like to read is the inspirational “Simply Crochet“.
They have recently done something quite new: they’ve developed an app (so far only available for Apple-users…….) that you can download on your iPhone or iPad (link here).
This “Granny Square App” gives you a new granny square pattern each week. How cool is that?
And, if you’re an android user, you can still crochet your granny a week, since the Simply Crochet people are kindly distributing their patterns also via their newsletter – all you have to do is subscribe.
The app gives you several options. For instance, to follow either UK or US crochet terms and you have a choice of a chart or a written pattern – very convenient.
It’s a lot of fun seeing all kinds of grannies in all kinds of colors (here, here or here) – it goes to show how the same pattern gives you a very different look when using different colors!
I have no idea how many grannies will be added – but they’ll make for a nice cushion cover at least!
