Grapes and Vine Granny Square

I used Lion Brands Vanna's Choice in
Olive and Purple
I a size J hook but use any size you prefer

Using purple make a magic circle
Round 1

Chain and pull up to the height you want on your puff stitches. Make a 7 loop puffstitch ch2 repeat 3 times and join the last ch2 with the first puff stitch.
Round 2
Using olive
Ch3, 2dc, ch3 dc, ch1 (all in the ch2 of r1)* skip to the next ch2 space of r1 and 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch1 * repeat 2 more times and join with beginning ch3

Here is the inspiration for this square! I was sitting a a yummy Italian place and thought of these colors! I wanted the grape portion to be rounder and fuller so I used the puff stitch to give it some variety.  I think this could also double for a violet or wine inspired square!
Round 3
Ch3, 2dc, 3dc, ch1, (all in the ch2 of r2)3dc in the ch1 space,ch1,*3dc, ch2, 3dc,ch2 , 3dc in the next ch1 space, ch1* repeat 2 times and join

Round 4
Switch to purple
Chain in any corner and pull up make *1 puff stitch, ch2 loosely , 1 puff stitch, ch1, 1 puff stitch in the next ch1 space, ch1, make 1 puff stitch in the ch1 space, ch 1* repeat 3 more times and join

Last round!
Using olive
Attach at any corner. Ch3 , 2 dc, ch2, 3 dc, ch1 , skip to next ch1 spot and 3dc,ch1, skip to the next ch1 spot and 3 dc, ch1, skip to the next ch1 spot and 3dc, ch1 *in the ch2 work 3dc, ch2, 3dc, skip to the ch1, 3dc,ch1 3times* repeat two more times and join.

Don't forget to weave in your ends!  What do you plan on making this square for? Comment below ! Don't for get to check back for all my other squares this month! There will be a new one 6 days every week!


  1. I think I might try to make it into a granighan for a baby size and if it goes well perhaps make an afghan like it. It looks like a great stashbuster and I am loaded (overloaded) with yarn. Thank you for the pattern

  2. What is a 'magic circle'? I've been crocheting for over 30 years and have never heard of this.

  3. Dawnjerrene, just type in magic circle in your search engine, you will have all the info you need to make one. Hope you have found it already.

  4. Super cute but I found it really confusing for some reason. Ended up just looking at the picture and kinda winged it. Still looks the same at least. Thanks!
