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,

Baby Granny Blanket

This is a fun little granny square baby blanket that I crocheted up quickly a week or so ago. I started it during the move and then ran out of yarn as I only picked up one skein. So I added the green and pink to make it large enough. It starts with a 20 round granny square of the multi-color yarn. Then it has a row of green, another variegated round and two rounds of pink. I then added sweet little two round granny squares to the ends to make the blanket a rectangle.The whole thing is bordered with two rows of green and the pink scalloped border. Here is a detail photo of the cute little granny squares. 

I apologize for the snap shots of the baby afghan. I have lost my good camera sometime during the move. I really think it is hidden in a box that is not unpacked yet. Hopefully it will turn up soon. This pretty little blanket will be in the shop as soon as some decent photos are taken. It was really just a quick little fun project! The good news is that I used up the variegated yarn.

What have you been working on?

Talk to you later,

Karen

P.S. I can always make one in blue and white for that baby boy in your life!
