Look What I Made: Giant Granny Squares Blanket

Yep, I made a baby! A pretty cute one too. And a blanket, a pretty big one at that. Three years in the making, off and on. Probably more off than on. Now it’s all done, just in time for…Summer.

Blankety Facts:
Size – about 275 x 230cm, big enough for a queen size bed
Squares – 72, each with 10 rounds, joined on-the-go
Border – Seven rounds of black yarn
Yarn – A mix of soft acrylics like Stylecraft DK and Panda Magnum Soft 8ply

Am I the only one who keeps a record of what they make? I have a list for crochet blankets and one for quilts.

Look What I Made: Baby Granny Square Blanket

This baby-size (pram-size really) granny square blanket is another I can cross off my to-do list. The coloured yarn is Stylecraft Special Double Knit, left over from my granny stripe and ripple blankets. The cream is Panda Magnum Soft 8ply which I think gives the blanket a warm vintage feel. I think I made all of the granny squares in 2012 but took my time weaving in the ends and adding the border. Happy to add this one to the “done” pile!
