Ta dah!

I am finished with this crochet blanket. I am so excited. It has been a fun, quick blanket. I started the border and then ripped it all out and restarted on the border. I love the new border. This blanket started like this, just a mix up of various granny squares of all different sizes. It is also a scrap blanket as it used up various little balls of yarn that I had in my yarn bowl.

Aqua Granny Square Blanket!

I have finally finished this blanket and the photos were just taken today. You have seen it since the very start. I frogged three rows and started over in the plain Granny Square stitch. I like it much better and it isn’t ruffly like it was starting to be.

42″ square of luscious soft granny square blanket. It is wonderfully soft! I love the soft washable variegated yarn. It changes from a moss green to a lovely aqua and hits almost every shade of blue green in between.IMG_3367 IMG_3368 IMG_3369 IMG_3370 IMG_3372It is finished with a plain racetrack border. It is available in the shop ready to ship!  https://www.etsy.com/listing/170542725/crochet-blanket-granny-square-blanket

Frogging and Redoing…

I have been taking this apart (frogging) and reworking it into a better blanket. I just didn’t like the cream border around all these intense bright colors. It was going to be a larger square granny square blanket using these squares.

 

It just didn’t look right. It is now a rectangular granny square blanket. Here is a photo of it in its beginnings.

Here it is in all its glorious beauty!

 

It is crocheted out of wool yarn and is the first rectangular Granny Square afghan I have

ever made.  It is a lap blanket and perfect for a chilly day.

See you later,

Karen
