I created this Spinning Spider Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting design! I hope you enjoy making your square!
This Spinning Spider Granny Square is a great match for The Web We Weave Granny Square! Make them both into a big blanket for a spooky afghan!
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.
Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this square:
