Having completed work on the two ten-round granny squares for my current granny square bag project, I got to work on the sixteen five-round granny squares needed to make the completed project.
To guide my efforts and get some sense of how the squares will interact with each other, I sketched this diagram of how the squares will be laid out before the final joining:
Working with a 4.0 mm hook and my seemingly endless yarn stash, over the last couple of days I managed to complete five of the sixteen five-round squares.
Here they are posing with my new spring shoes:
And here they are in one possible arrangement for the completed bag:
With eleven squares yet to be crocheted, I expect that I will change my mind about something between now and the final joining, but in the meantime I am moving forward as I always do, one stitch at a time.
