  1. Hello! Your grannysquare blanket is so lovely! I decided to crochet my own. I'm only a beginner, so could you please help me with some questions?

    1. How did you sew the squares together - just with a needle and the white blanket wool (of which the blanket is made)? Or somehow else?

    2. What is the pattern of blanket's edge? Could you please explain in the same way as in post "granny square pattern"? I like it a lot and want to copy your way.

    3. What did you do with the yarn ends? What does "weave in" exactly mean?

    Thanks a lot in advance. Yesterday I prepared one prototype square of your design:

  2. Hello!!

    1. yes, with needle and the same yarn used to crochet. I just did a simple whipstitch to join. (on the top)

    2. Very simple edge, 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.

    3. http://z.about.com/d/crochet/1/0/X/q/endsteps.JPG, If you can't find this just search for "weaving in yarn ends"

    I couldn't see the picture of your prototype but would love to! Wishing you lots of luck and fun on your blanket!!
