Granny Stripes {Crochet Stitch Tutorial}

Granny Stripes are a fun variation of the traditional granny square stitch. Instead of working the granny stitch in a square, the Granny Stripes are worked in rows.

Granny stripes can be used in a variety of projects. You can get creative with the colors you use, for beautiful effects. You can see an example of how I used various rows of different colors in my Granny Stripes Color Burst Blanket. To see how the granny stripes look when you simply alternate each row between two colors, take a look at my Granny Stripes Scarf.

Granny Stripes are worked in a multiple of 3 +1. For this tutorial, I am usinf a size I crochet hook, and I am starting with 28 chains. 9x3=27+1=28.

Here are the written instructions. I will break them down with photos after.
