Boho Granny Square Top – Free Crochet Pattern

Last summer I decided to make my own version of the granny square top that you can see now almost everywhere.

I made mine in color nude and black, it’s so easy and quick depending on the kind of yarn and hook size you will use. So choose wisely! I made the mistake to pick a cotton yarn a bit heavier for summer wear.

I used a rustic cotton threat that I got in my stash for awhile and a hook n°5, now if I have to choose again I will definetely get a much lighter threat because mine turned out to be heavier, warmer and bigger. I recommend you to find a yarn/threat that will  be more appropriate for your use.

AssemblageGranny Square Pattern

I used a sewing stitch to assemble all the grannies as seeing in the picture in color A. Once I had the shape, I used the color B to single crochet the upper edge and made the holder to fit my body. For the bottom I only single crochet the border and put some fringe with the rest of yarn just to cover the front. This last step is optional, I wanted to finish the yarn and love the boho look.
