Granny square blanket completed!





Complete! Finished! It seemed to have taken forever but finally here it is. It is meant to be a couch blanket but I wanted to 'model it' on Annie's bed for the photographs. Not so sure I can get it back downstairs. She quite likes it just where it is right now. :) (Dolly made by Annie with mama's help)

  9. How very adorable! If you don't mind me asking, how many granny squares did it take to finish this beautiful piece?

  10. Thank you!!

    The blanket is made up of 144 squares, 12 squares a strip. :) I thought that would be a good couch size. Plus I think I ran out of patience to go bigger. :)

  11. Wow, I think this blanket looks stunning! I love how the white makes the colors more powerful. And your edging is really special, could you please tell how you did it? I would love to use it on my own granny square blanket when it's finished.

  12. Thanks so much! :) The edging is super simple, first a round of sc, then for round 2 I did *2 dc, chain 3, 2 dc* in every fourth sc. Row three just one more round of sc. Good luck!!

  13. I have seen so many granny blankets, but yours is one of the most beautiful! It makes me want to make my own for my son :) Could you please tell me how you put all your squares together?

  14. Hi!! Thanks for the sweet comments!
    I just sewed them together using a whipstitch, first in strips, then the strips together. Almost invisible. Good luck on your blanket!!!!

  15. Congratulations! This is a beautiful blanket. I'm about to order wool for a similar project- do you have any idea how much of your base colour you used? Thank you!!

  16. Thanks!! I honestly have no idea how many balls I used up.... I do know I started with 4 and made several trips back to the store for more, haha. Fortunately the dye lot wasn't so important for this project. Depending on the size blanket I would probably start with 6-8? But can't guarantee! :) Good luck!! This is a fun project for sure.
