Granny Square: an Oldie, but a Goodie

 

 

 

 

 

Granny Square:

an Oldie, but a Goodie.

 

Crochet came into my life because I love yarn,

but can't knit.

 

Of the blankets I have made in the past few years, I haven't crocheted a

'traditional' Granny Square blanket.

 

 

You know the ones,

they use a basic Granny design, Mid-Century colours

with a good smattering of black.

 

They feature heavily in Home & Design magazines.

 

Well, I have finally made mine.

 Grannys a go!


Measuring 81 x 180c, it's a small blanket.

 

No matter. For the occasional nap  (or a childs bed)


it is perfect!

 

 

More importantly however, I can now claim to be on-trend.

 

I expect I will be featured in the next edition of

'Country Living'.

 


(I wish!)

With my gorgeous

Granny Square Blanket carefully arranged on my sofa,

I can happily move onto my next project.

  

 

What to make?

 

Doily?

Leg warmers?

Scarf? 

Cup warmers?

Shawl?

Hat?

Blanket?

 

 

So many choices.

  1. I have never made a granny blanket…or a ripple…I have made several single colour ones…but they all seem to have left home for some reason…I have one left…maybe it would like a companion!!!
    Yours is very very granny…well done and very traditional…just as it should be… a granny indeed.
    🙂

  2. Thank you M for your lovely feedback.
    I feel that your blanket definitely needs a companion. My Granny Blanket is snuggling up next to another blanket I made last year. They look so cosy together 🙂

  3. Absolutely love your “Granny” squares, thank you for sharing … would itbe cheeky to ask if you could share the pattern you used and perhaps the yarn, which looks so rich and weighty …?

    Thanks again
