Crochet Granny Rectangle Tutorial by Brenda
A Crochet Granny Rectangle Tutorial?
I always love when crocheters are able to get creative with granny squares and the granny stitch in general. Who doesn’t love granny squares right? Granny squares are such a staple in the crochet world and there’s no escape from these classic pattern pieces. So naturally when I came across this crochet granny rectangle tutorial I was all in! I got excited because you can use the rectangles just like the squares and we can explore the idea of granny squares in a whole new way for a new look. I wanted to help share this tutorial with more people because this lacy granny rectangle has so many applications and I think the possibilities are endless here. I personally was thinking this pattern would make a really nice an easy crochet blanket when simply just extended out by just repeating the rows until the desired blanket size. I was also thinking that this granny rectangle would be good if it were pieced together to make a piece filled with multiple granny rectangles. What I really love most about this tutorial is that it is very easy and good for not only crochet beginners but also still useful to crocheters of all experience levels. So let’s get to this great fun and easy crochet tutorial!

This capelet is beginner friendly and I put some pictures below for you to check out. I can’t believe her first tutorial was this beautiful! Since her first tutorial, she’s also recently uploaded the Lacy Granny Square Tutorial and a Lacy Granny Triangle Tutorial.

I am looking forward to the tutorials that she whips up in the future.
If you head over to Brenda’s Instagram you will find such a creative feed that is very inspiring. Her passion and talent is most definitely displayed in her work. Brenda is always exploring the creative and fun use of color. In my opinion color is really hard to nail and Brenda is very frisky with her colors and nails it each time! She’s crocheted many beautiful items including ponchos, caplets, beach covers, purses, amigurumis and even a crochet ottoman cover! I’ve found nothing boring when she pops up on my Instagram feed.

Brenda the Newbie Crocheter’s Bio
“Hello everyone! I am Brenda the Newbie Crocheter! I was taught to crochet at the age of 10 by my grandmother. I did it for a bit especially when she visited but not regularly. I re-connected with the craft about 12 years ago and have not put down a hook ever since. I love color and try to work items that I can use or gift. In order words, I like to work with purpose. I started my channel during the pandemic in Sept. 2020 as a way to keep busy and keep my mind off the negativity happening around us. Crochet has given me the opportunity to be part of a worldwide fiber arts community and in some small way leave my imprint in the process.”
