I finally finished my daughter's granny square blanket! It was my last project that I really wanted to finish before we have the baby.
(And yes...my 3 year old is still in her crib...she absolutely loves it! Oh well, we will tackle the issue before she turns 4 in the spring:) For now I couldn't care less...Mama needs her sleep!)
I ended up only using 72 squares. The blanket was heavy enough already so I didn't want to add any more. I used this pattern....but only rows 1-4 and then a single crochet row around each square. No square is the same...so after 72 variations I was running out of ideas for color combinations:)
To assemble the blanket, I sewed each square together instead of crocheting them together.
Here is a view of the back of the blanket:
I also added a double crochet edge to the entire blanket once the squares were sewn together.
I love the way it turned out...and I also love that I am done with it! I am glad I went with a more random design. It's perfect for the little girl who's favorite color changes every day:) So, that was my last project to get done before this baby get here!
