Radiance Granny Square

A simple tweak transformed these granny squares into eye-catching motifs, no longer reminding us of the same old projects. There’s something different to them, and it’s the center, which looks like a sun. Clare decided to start with a simple circle and add a lovely openwork detail before continuing with a classic granny pattern.

Another project by Clare, which will go fabulously with her other designs, employs granny stitch only in the two outermost rounds of this square. As you can see below, the sun-like center is encompassed by two solid rounds of stitches. This version is dense and creates straight geometric lines.
