Sippa Granny Square

 

 

There are tons of different granny square patterns and here is another one. The granny square “Sippa”! Sippa is the Swedish word for anemone and in springtime there are lots of anemones around here in Sweden. The pattern includes a written description and a diagram. This square is a bit smaller in size than many other squares, approximately 6 x 6 cm with the yarn that I have used.

This pattern also includes a diagram and a description for a half square which is used if you want to crochet the scarf Sippa .


The yarn used in this pattern was sponsored by Järbo Garn.


MATERIAL

Yarn:  Any yarn would probably do but I have tried with Järbo 8/4 (Mercerized cotton, 4 ply, fingering weight)  and Alpacka Solo (100% Alpaca, 5 ply, sport weight).

Hook: 2,5 mm with Järbo 8/4 and 3,0 mm with Alpacka Solo.
Other: Scissors and a tapestry needle.
