    Did you use an I hook? In the video he states H hook.

    The picture you put with this pattern is a picture of the rectangular modern granny like you do for the afghan, right? But the instructions make the modern granny square so it is kind of misleading. Or am I completely wrong?
    Thank you for this pattern though I love it.

      There are no pictures of the rectangle modern granny on this page. This one is done as a square. I’m not sure what you are saying. ~ Jeanne

        This is the page I’m looking at and with it is a picture of a rectangular modern granny shrug. It wouldn’t let me paste the picture. Just wondering how to make a shrug with the rectangular modern granny pattern.

    I love granny squares and this one is pretty cool – even though it is new to me. The tutorial is great. I found out yesterday my boss is retiring in 2 days and 2 weeks so I have to get really busy. Picked purple(s) because it’s her favorite color. Hope I can get it done but that means little fb and lots of crocheting. Thanks for sharing. I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Crochet Crowd. You have taught me so much and everyone is so inspiring. Stay blessed in his love!

    I have made a granny square shrug before and LOVE it. Do you think a solid granny square pattern would work for a shrug? I think it should work, I just can’t decide if it will look right!

    I made one for my 7 yr old son. Great to wear when just out of bed and you don’t want wet sleeves.

    I’ll post this on FB also in case you don’t see this one. What is your take on making this for a man? My brother has cancer and he gets chilled easy. I was thinking this in browns and in an XL might be just what he needs to take the chill off. Your thoughts?

      That would be awesome. My husband has stage IV lung and brain cancer with seizures (from brain tumor) and he’s constantly complaining of being cold, even in 90• weather.
      I’m making one for me out of Lion Brand Landscapes in tropics, gifted yarn.

      I don’t see why not. I wore mind to work the other day and it was so cozy. Maybe just pick a more masculine color. Or is he a sports fan? Maybe team colors too might be an option?
