Cut the yarn and finish off.
To add the veins, cut a piece of red yarn and secure it on the back of the granny square. Then start making stitches by going from the back of the granny square to the front. Stitch lines all around in random lines until you get the veiny-effect. Once you are done, weave the red yarn in the back to secure it.
Aaaaand you’re done.
