All the help for a novice in the craft of crochet can be found here on this website. Easy granny square patterns with tutorials are available. I find tutorials to be very helpful as I can use them as and when I like including as many times I like, no embarrassment of asking a person too many times.

I like all the colors but I find it much easier to use the lighter ones because i can see them better until I bought the crochet light hooks wow now all the colors

I am going to just make squares working with my waaaay too much yarn and see where it takes me. Nice creative project, no precise look in mind, just let it flow and see where it goes! In fact, I think that I am going to try all different square patterns as well! Fun! Do any of you have squares that worked particularly well or that you just really enjoyed? Thanks!

The brighter the colors the better. I look at each pattern and try to figure how I can make it more colorful. Life is too much of an adventure to be neutral.

I like to work with neutral colors with a little splash of bright thrown in.

I prefer color afghans. The more the merrier!

I love to work with bright colors.

Pretty much bright colors , but usually it depends on who I am making it for

I prefer to work with bright cheery colors most times as I am energized by them during the process, knowing they brighten others days upon receipt, unless a request has been made for something to be created in neutrals. This also depends on the project.

It depends on what it is I'm crocheting and who it's for I love natural colours but also I like to inject a bit of bright sparkly colour into my wardrobe. I'm currently working on a long, belted cardigan using this gorgeous yarn which reminds me of the colours in a peacock's feathers.

Neutral colors, mostly )

I use mostly bright colours but will use muted ones if the project looks better in more subdued colours.

I don't really prefer one over the other. it depends on the project.

I go for bright colors and bulky yarns. However, will use muted colors where warranted.

I have started making granny squares for a granny squares afghan project and it's beautiful. I chose the colorful designs and it's really so attractive. This is my first time to make a granny squares afghan and I'm learning which way is the best to connect the squares to each other. To those who want to start a project like this, you need to choose the colors you want to use. You don't have to stick to the colors suggested in the pattern. You can make your own combination. Happy granny squares crocheting.

Wow I thank you for these wonderful patterns l hope to make an afgan using them I think it will be unusual, I will take a picture when I finish if it turns out as I imagine.

I think this information is super. I'm glad I found it. Thx, carljean
