Granny Square Craze

I had this wild idea over Christmas to make all these granny squares. Of course now I’m not sure what I was thinking because I have to put them together to make the blanket. It’s not that it’s difficult to do either. It’s more time consuming than anything. There’s a reason I took up crocheting and not sewing 😃.

Anyways, I really enjoyed making the individual squares, but next time I think I’ll do the crocheting together as I go method.

Rainbow Granny Square

I’ve been wanting to try the Red Heart Stripes yarn, so I bought 5 skeins (used 4.5) of the Favorite Stripe. While the skeins look pretty, it turned out that they are actually rainbow colors. For this blanket, I chose not to include the chain between my 3-dc clusters. Usually, I don’t add a border to my blankets, but with all of the beautiful colors I had to. I used a single crochet all the way around and then a double crochet all the at around to finish the border. It turned out so nice it’s hard to give it away, but there is always a child that needs it more than me.

Baby Blanket

I’ve completed my first blanket of the year. My goal this year is to keep track of everything I crochet. I chose to do a granny square using a 4.0 mm hook. When I do the granny square I don’t add a chain in between groups of three. I chain two in the corners. Using this method it gives me the lines on each row.

The blanket is 32″ x 32″:
