Io ho diventare un po ' ossessionato questa settimana con fare nonna piazze utilizzando un design bicolore che richiede leggermente meno tessitura delle estremità rispetto a una normale nonna multicolore.

I due tono Granny Square

Ecco come li sto facendo:

  • Tenere insieme due fili di filato.
  • Utilizzando un uncinetto F, ch 4. DC nella prima catena. Continuare con il processo di quadrati granny normale per rendere il primo turno utilizzando sia colori di filato tenuti insieme.
  • Drop Color A to the back (no need to cut and finish off). Crochet the next round using Color B.
  • Drop Color B to the back. Crochet the next round using Color A.
  • Pick up both colors and hold the two strands together to crochet the final round.
  • Terminate e tessere in estremità.

Pro e contro

I’m loving this design for several reasons:

  • I love the two tone color.
  • I love the unique color and pattern features of how it looks when two yarn strands are worked together.
  • I don’t have to weave in ends from every single round, just the final round.

The main drawback is that you’re carrying over that second color of yarn from one row to the next so it appears as a basically a diagonaldashon one side of the granny square. This is a non-issue if you’re making a one-sided item. Ad esempio, I’m adding some granny squares to the bottom of the dress so I’ll just put this side on the inside and no one will ever know. I actually don’t mind the littledash” me stesso. I could see making a blanket using these squares and just making sure that thedashis in the same corner and pointing the same direction on all of the squares so it just looks intentional. Here’s a photo highlighting this flaw:

The Ones I’ve Made So Far

I’m using three different colors of yarn for these right now. I’m using two colors in each square, alternating color combinations as well as which of the two colors go in the center. (So I might use black and silver twice but once with black as Color A and once with it as Color B). The black yarn is Red Heart Shimmer. The blue and silver are both Bambù di seta Patons.

A Sneak Peak at the Dress

Come accennato, some of these squares are going to become the bottom edge of a dress that I’ve been working on. I made a sleeveless dress recently using Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Persia and a not-sure-brand-I-had in grey and black. I think the row of grannies at the bottom will add a final pop to the piece. I’ll be revealing the whole dress when it’s actually ready but here’s a sneak peak:

WIP mercoledì

Since it’s Wednesday and this is a WIP I thought I’d add it to the linky over at Tami’s Amis. Click the photo below to see what others are making:

    • Thanks MaryThis comment did come through just fine. We’re still working on getting comments taking care of so that they work perfectly but the problem seems to be getting better.

      I agree with you on the weaving in ends for sure but I do think that your two-purple granny squares would look lovely. Let me know if you end up doing them!

      Thanks on the dress. I think I’m going to remove the grannies from the bottom and then it’ll just be a blue/grey dress and that will open options to wear fun tights and shoes! :)
