Tiny Granny Squares

Well, here is the result of my experiment with embroidery floss and a very small crochet hook.

My first ever granny squares, and they are rather tiny!

The black beaded one is about 2cm in diameter, and the bronze one is about 2.5cm or 1".
I actually started the idea with beading wire, but I couldn't get it to bend enough to crochet with. (Has anyone else tried this? And if you did, were you successful?)
Now I need to figure out which way I am going to use them ;)
I have a couple of ideas... any suggestions?


  1. These are so detailed and tiny!! Adorable! I wonder if there is a thinner wire that you could try? No sure, since I haven't use wire in a long time. But they are sure cute!

  2. They'd look pretty as a necklace if you threaded them on a chain and added a third element, such as a charm, to add a little interest and weight.

    I'm sure you'll think of something as you're obviously very clever. Good luck!

  3. I have a pair of crocheted wire earings I got in Dubrovnik - very cool... will have to show you.
