{Granny Square Motif}

I am crocheting a new granny square pillow for our living room! I decided to make the  center of the granny square in bright colors and crochet the rest in this blue-greyish color!  Granny squares are always so much fun to make! These particular ones are easy and can be modified, e.g. you may stop at round 3 or make XL squares since the pattern is adjustable to fit any measurement and liking!:)
