Simple Loop Granny Square Crochet Border
"This simple loop granny square crochet border is just one way to beautifully finish off a blanket. There is just something addicting about a granny square blanket. Once you get the hang of it, the possibilities are endless. Switch up the yarn colors, change the crochet edge, or even add in a few new styled granny squares. They are just so versatile and gorgeous. The squares are joined using the invisible join. If you are not familiar with that method, I have done a video for you on how to do this. "
