Here is the yarn I used to crochet the blanket:
Caron Royalty 530
Caron Sky Blue 508
I skein of Red Heart Yarn - I lost the label but I think it is Country Blue #ID 0382
Crochet Hook - Size I-9 US
This is what I did to make my blanket:
- 8 rows for each granny square
- 3 granny squares across
- 4 granny squares down
12 granny squares all together
The dimensions of the blanket are 32'' wide by 42'' length.
Once all the granny squares were made I laid them out the way I wanted them to look. I then single crocheted all the granny squares together. The granny squares are each a solid blue color yarn. To see the tutorial I used for assembling all the squares you can find it HERE from Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me. Darlene had single crocheted around each square but I did not do that when I made my squares. For making the border I will single crochet all around the blanket. When I have the border finished I will take a photo of the finished blanket to show you.
I hope I have inspired you to create a granny square blanket too. This blanket I made is being donated to the crochet group that I belong to at my church for the Christmas Fair in the fall.
