The pattern used in the image above is from a recent post. Use multiple colors to change the look of this easy project.  

Ideal to use up scraps of wool.

Crochet granny chains by Homemade at My Place 

We used to make these chains with paper.  Sometimes we even colored the pieces of paper with crayons and drew child-like patterns on it. 

Do you remember?

It reminds me of  Joseph’s technicolor dream coat.

6. Granny snowflakes

7. Granny Christmas tree skirt 


Unfortunately the blogger only shared her finished item in the post and not a pattern.

But, I am sure you won’t have a hard time reproducing something similar – am I right?

Patterns are like buying a house – there is always something you’d want to tweak to your liking!

Upon further research, I found that Sandra has a newer blog, called, and a Ravelry store with the pattern costing $4.50.
