Spring Granny Blanket

Hurray! My granny square blanket is fully completed! A first time I made such a big blanket!

The size is 140cm*175cm.

The colours of the blanket I've been associated with a spring.

I love this blanket because it's FOR ME!!!

It is so cool to wrap myself from head to toe... m-m-m... so nice... Or seat under it with my lovely girls together... Or with my husband...

So the blanket contains 8*10 squares. Each square contains 7 rounds. The first three rounds are a circle, 4th round forms a square  with trebles in corners. Below is a description. Contact with me, please, if there is something wrong you notice.

US symbols:
dc - double crochet
tr -  treble crochet
ch - chain

Ch 4 joining in ring;
1 rnd: 12 dc in ring;
2 rnd: in each of 12 spaces between the stitches - [2 dc together, ch 1];
3 rnd: in each of  ch-1-spaces - (3 dc, ch 1);
4 rnd: working in each ch-1-space. *In 1st space to form a corner (3 tr, ch 2, 3 tr), ch 1. In each of  next 2 spaces (3 dc and ch 1). From * repeat 3 more times;
5 rnd: working in each ch-1-space. *(3 dc, ch2, 3 dc) for a corner, ch1. In each of  next 3 spaces (3 dc and ch 1). From * repeat 3 more times;
6 rnd: working in each ch-1-space. *(3 dc, ch2, 3 dc) for a corner, ch1. In each of  next 4 spaces (3 dc and ch 1). From * repeat 3 more times;

About the border. It is so simple. Just 3 dc and ch 1, 3 dc and ch 1, etc... And in corners 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc. As many rounds as you want. But I made 10 rounds.

And below is a graphic pattern (in U.S. symbols) of the square in which I drawn only 5 rounds. The round 6 and 7 you will continue in the same manner as round 5.

After I finished this blanket, I felt I am empty... A few days I didn't crochet anything... Only thinking about my unfinished projects. Which of this will be next... So I decided to take up African flower hexagons. It will be a bag!

See you soon with a heart garland I finished a few days ago!
I wish you a spring sunny day!

  3. Looking good! Such cheerful colors, I really like it. Is the yarn changing colors of itself? :) And it's big! One day I will make a big blanket too.
    And love to see your bag with the african flower hexies, love them already :)

  4. Well done, that must have taken you ages to make. I love the colours and it fits very nicely on your couch and your bed. Is that another blanket I see tucked away next to the bed???
    I have one project in its very final stages, tons of unfinished WIPS, but I had to go and start a new one 2 days ago. Oh when will I ever learn!
