So you’ve mastered the granny square and are ready to tackle the next crochet challenge. Me too, crafty friends, me too. Only I am not totally finished the tote bag yet. Shh, don’t tell. Turns out the handle and the sewing up aren’t as much fun as the granny square part.
If you are ready for more, here’s 10 great projects to inspire you.

This throw blanket reminds me of one my grandmother made years ago. Of course hers was orange and brown. This is the Windsor Ripple Throw, a free pattern from Red Heart Yarns.

With or without the flower the Granny Stripe Boutique Bag from Tangled Happy builds on our granny square making knowledge and makes a super cute bag. Excellent to show off our homemade skills at a party.
Now the only dilemma is which one to make first.
