Soft Modern Granny — January 31, 2018

Soft Modern Granny

After completing a chunky modern granny, I had to try the stitch again in a finer yarn to see what it looked like. So, I had some Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly Big yarn in Pale Blue. Since it was 14 oz, I thought it would make a good size using a 4.5 mm hook. The final blank is about 40″ x 32″. I really do like the clean look of the modern granny. This blanket is machine washable and dryable.

Chunky Modern Granny

I found a pattern for a Modern Granny and loved it. It’s just enough more contemporary than the traditional granny square. I used an “L” hook and 6.5 skeins of Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky in Majesty. For my first try, I think it turned out great. The final size is 48″ x 32″. It went together really quickly.

My Siamese cats really like the chunky yarn, so they are apart of the pictures this go around.
