Finished Crochet Granny Blanket

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Hi friends, I finally finished crocheting the border for the crocheted granny square blanket.  Here is what the blanket looks like laid out on the floor.  

For the final border on the blanket I half double crocheted all the around the blanket.  I kept the border simple and I love the way the blanket and border looks.

In case you missed the post on the pattern and yarn I used for this project you can find it HERE.

I really enjoyed working on this blanket and it feels good to be finally finished with it.  I will be donating this blanket that I made to the Christmas Fair that we have at our church.  I hope I may have maybe inspired you to crochet or knit something.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful weekend.  See you all next week.

  26. Great job! I found that baby blankets are more my size - props to you for getting this afghan done! I really like how you did the border in the lighter color and then the blue and then the lighter color again.
    Enjoy your weekend!
