Planning a Blanket

I made loads of squares for my granny square book and since then, they’ve been neatly piled in a corner of my craft room.  They’ve been moved around and resorted over and over again but always end up in a neat pile in the corner.  Some have still got their labels on.

I thought I’d better do something with them and what better than a snuggly blanket.  Winter is coming after all.




I laid them out randomly.  I toyed with the idea of arranging them somehow but just decided to let them fall where they wanted.  I made sure that the Home and Sweet squares fell in a row nicely in the middle though.



Now to find some yarn to edge and join them…

    That's beautiful, like crochet patchwork. I borrowed your book from the library and loved your squares, I've reserved it again as there's a few squares I want to try making.

      Hi Hester,

      All the patterns for the squares are in my book 100 Bright and Colourful Granny Squares to Crochet. You can find out more about the book here…
      If you decide to buy the UK edition please use the code for a discount!
      The book is also in the library system here in the UK and, I think, in the US.
      Many thanks and Happy Hooking!

      Hi Julie,
      I joined all the blocks using Cascade 220 shade no. 8687 Butter. And, used the same for a simple edging.
      Many thanks and Happy Hooking!
