Crochet Tutorial: Vivacious Attitude Granny Square

I was given a suggestion to use Ceramic Tile designs as inspiration to create a granny square. After doing a bit of research, I came across one that inspired me to create this unique block. I named it Vivacious Attitude because of the rich color combination and the eclectic amount of stitches combined to make this square just pop with excitement!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.



Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this granny square:
