With everything that’s been going on with Little Cat I’d forgotten to show you my finished granny square patchwork blanket. Well here it is –
It’s all Stylecraft Special DK, its 25 x 27 squares, each square is 3 rounds and it fits my king size bed with plenty of overhang on each side, I used the JAYG (join as you go) method of joining the squares together.
The boarder is 8 rounds; 4 rounds of granny, 2 rounds of double, 1 round of popcorn, 1 round of granny with long centre stitch and a final round of 2 trebles 2 chain 2 trebles all in the same space.
I’m already planning the next blanket – I do love to crochet but I prefer to crochet something with a purpose. In the meantime I’m making a smaller blanket again out of Stylecraft Special DK but with all the different colours I have in my stash.
Here’s the progress so far – still have another 5 colours to go – not sure whether to do join them randomly or do a row of each colour – umm will have to think about it.
