Crochet the Sunburst granny square

 This is one of the very pretty granny square pattern one can achieve, it enlarges our creations choices when we want to make something other than the traditional granny square but from the same family.

I love the way it looks when using different colors, for now, summer time, it would be ideal to make a shawl using this pattern which is already in my list, a rectangular one using the join as you go stitch, it ll add a pop of color especially if you are wearing one color outfit.

I also recently made the daisy granny square which is also pretty and quick to achieve, a pillow would be perfect for that one.

You'll find the video tutorials  in the link below so it can help together with the written pattern.
