Before I knew it there were enough squares to make a small couch blanket. And then I realized that I had been crocheting with all of J's favourite colors! I'm telling you it was fate! After getting a nice neutral cream colored yarn for borders and joining, I had a very nice handmade gift.
|Voila! I love how the afghan turned out!|
|The granny square is so easy to do & looks wonderful.|
|J was thrilled when he opened it & I'm glad he loves it!|
The blanket is six squares by six squares which is just enough for one person to cuddle up with on the couch. Each granny square is five rounds without the border. The cream border on each square is simply one round of single crochet. Once each square had a border I connected the squares in larger squares of four, and then crocheted each four square patch together. I kept things easy and consistent by using a single crochet to join everything. To finish it off there are two rounds of single crochet one the outside edge. Too easy!
This is the first granny square afghan I've done and I'm very pleased with the result. I've already started another! Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping! Candice
