These versatile fruity granny squares are ready for summer!
I LOVED designing these granny squares!
Watermelon is one of my favorite things (as you may have been able to tell by my series of watermelon-inspired preemie designs), and I had to create a watermelon granny square!
Granny squares are so versatile and can be connected to create almost anything! I haven't yet gotten the chance to pull these squares together, but I'm thinking of a watermelon granny square bag! Comment if you're interested in seeing a watermelon granny square bag pattern :)
You'll need worsted weight yarn in green, white, and pink, and a little bit of black for the seeds! These are super quick to whip up, so you'll have a stack of melons in no time.
