Last summer, I decided to make my own version of the granny square top that you can see now almost everywhere.
I made mine in color nude and black, it’s so easy and quick depending on the kind of yarn and hook size you will use. So choose wisely! I made the mistake to pick a cotton yarn a bit heavier for summer wear.
I used a rustic cotton threat that I got in my stash for awhile and a hook n°5, now if I have to choose again I will definetely get a much lighter threat because mine turned out to be heavier, warmer and bigger. I recommend you to find a yarn/threat that will be more appropriate for your use.
Let’s start with the pattern!
Boho Granny Square Crochet Top
- crochet hook 5 mm
- 2 skeins of 100 gr. rustic cotton yarn in nude (color A) and black (color B)
- tapestry needle
ø: magic ring
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
trc: triple crochet
ss: slip stitch
US – L (large) / EU – 40
To make it smaller you can either choose a thiner yarn and a hook size n° 3,5 – 4 and follow the pattern. Or you can just skip round 5.
The Granny Square
Round 1: ø Make 3 ch (count as 1st dc) 2 dc + 2 ch, *3dc + 2 dc*, repeat * 2 times. Make a ss in the 3rd ch to finish the round. You should have 4 corners, each of 2ch spaces.
Round 2: In the first corner make 3ch (count as 1st dc) 2 dc + 2 ch + 3 dc, continue making * 3dc + 2ch + 3dc* in the next 3 corners, ss in the 3rd ch to finish the round.
Round 3: In the first corner make 3ch (count as 1st dc) 2 dc + 2ch + 3dc, in the next space (between the 3dc) 3 dc, make *3dc + 2ch + 3dc , in the next space (between the 3dc) 3 dc*, repeat twice, ss in the 3rd ch to finish the round.
Round 4: 3ch (as 1 st dc), *make 1 dc for each st, in the first corner (2ch space) make 2dc + 3 ch + 2dc*, repeat * till the end, ss in the 3rd ch to finish the round.
Round 5: 3ch (as 1 st dc), *make 1 dc for each st, in each corner (2ch space) make 2dc + 1trc + 2dc*, repeat till the end, ss in the 3rd ch.
You will need 8 granny squares in total.
I used a sewing stitch to assemble all the grannies as seeing in the picture with the color A. Once I had the shape, I used the color B to single crochet the upper edge and made the holder to fit my body. For the bottom I only single crochet the border and put some fringe with the rest of yarn just to cover the front. This last step is optional, I wanted to finish the yarn and love the boho look.
