Patterns:  All-New Twenty to Make:  Animal Granny Squares by Sarah-Jane Hicks available for purchase at Amazon or in other bookstores.

Yarn:  Depending on what you want to make:


  • Washcloth:  pick you design and purchase cotton to match it.  You could use any weight yarn like dk, worsted or bigger.  

  • Pillow/Wall hanging: any weight yarn, choose the colors you want

  • Blanket: The book uses dk weight yarn, lots of small amounts of leftovers if you have them. I will have some I can share. Please buy an extra skein of yarn for the color you want to use for joining and the border.  I used a light grey in my sample and that is what is used in the book.
