"This is a beginner friendly crochet pattern and video tutorial showing how to crochet a granny square and create a shadow box with it. Perfect for a gallery wall, or tiered tray! The stitch definition of the cotton yarn is lovely, plus it is a great way to use up scraps. You'll need about 20 yards of worsted weight yarn, an H8/5mm crochet hook, a tapestry needle, 5" shadow box (mine is from Michaels), and glue (I recommend Titebond Quick and Thick Multi-Surface). Time wise, the granny square takes about 15-20 minutes, another 5 or so for gluing and then finishing touches so just under 30 minutes."
