I’m home again after a lovely holiday to the warmer north-west part of our state. Well, it was warmer but we did have our fair share of gloomy weather. But all wasn’t lost, because it meant it was perfect crochet weather!
I finished this project while we were away, a classic granny square blanket in beautiful vintage shades using Special DK by Stylecraft.
The granny squares were made up of 4 rounds in 5 different colours using a 4.5mm hook: Sage, Storm Blue, Parma Violet, Parchment & Cream. I made sure to not use cream on the 4th round, as I planned to use it for joining the squares.
I used the continuous join-as-you-go for the first time – I loved it! So speedy, and only 2 ends – one at the start and one at the end. It also has a nice finished texture. You can find tutorials for this technique here and here.
To finish off, I added a simple granny border, followed by a gentle scallop, all in cream.
This is blanket number 2 of 5 for a special custom order – a few more borders to complete and I’ll be sharing them soon!
